Popular horse names

As you already know, horses are beautiful and majestic creatures. They create special bonds between their own kind and their owners. If you have decided you want to get a horse (good choice!) then choosing their name is the next big thing.

We recommend spending some time with your new companion, see what personality traits they have, are they soft, goofy, energetic? Going for a ride will also help for inspiration, see if anything catches your eye within the nature around you.

If you’re still stuck, don’t fret! We have compiled a list of names for Male and Female horses, and also a list of famous horse names.
