Probably one of the most exciting parts of getting a new horse (aside from just bringing him home) is getting to name it. The possibilities are endless!

There are many different characteristics with which you can base a name - color, markings, breed, personality, or even just shortening of the registered name (but what’s fun about that, right?).

My husband has a policy that all horses that come through our barn start out with the name “Pickles” and must earn themselves a real name. Being horse trainers, we can sometimes wind up with a lot of “Pickles’”! I prefer much more riveting names than “Roan Pickles” and “Grey Pickles”, but something like Spot and Stormy are a little too cliche for my taste.

But finding the perfect inspiration can be tricky!

Sometimes a list of cutesy names to get those creative gears grinding can be just the ticket to finding the perfect name! Check out this epic list of names for all the gentle, sweet horses out there.
