    Default What have you always wanted to name a horse?

    I'm definitely one of those people who'll hear something and say "Oh my god that'd be the BEST show name!"

    And I know everyone has those "I've always wanted to name a horse ______" thoughts, so what are yours?


    I've always wanted to get a small pony hunter, preferably a strawberry roan, and name it Sweet Home Alabama.

    And I've always wanted to name a horse Kodachrome. (Unless I'm going crazy and there already is a Kodachrome out there? I'm vaguely remembering that....hmm...)

    What about you?

    There were so many hunters named Finesse when I was a teen that I always wanted to name one of my jumpers "Forget Finesse." I've come really close to using that name on a couple of the ones I've had since then, but I always chicken out in the end because obviously successfully riding in the big jumpers requires a lot of finesse and I'd hate to jinx myself!

    I almost named a TB I have now "Beer Goggles" because he was SOOOO oddly put together (think Frankenhorse) and scraggly looking when I got him. But he (strangely enough) looks so put together when he goes that it really wouldn't make much sense to anyone else. So I guess I'm still looking for a less-than-classic horse to use that name on.

    I always wanted to name a massively classy Saddlebred or hunter "The Gallant." And I always wanted to name a Walking horse "Elastic Step." I had a tiny jumper pony that had a motto at the barn, that, if I'd ever got to show him would've made a perfect show name: "More Bounce to the Ounce."

    I knew of a draft cross named TRACTOR - he was precious!

    I always had a list of names too - Avalon was one and Skibberdeen I wanted for an Irish Jumper/eventer - but somehow or another no horse I've ever owned matched my dream names.. maybe one day...

    I love that Forget Finesse !Great for a jumper

    My friend, who is done growing and probably 5'5", wants to train ponies when she graduates, and she says when she turns them over to sell them, she's going to name them all after Pokemon! So if in 10-15 years you see a swarm of cute fancy ponies named after Pokemon, she will be responsible.

    I have always wanted to see a big sleek expensive horse that kicked ass given a name like 'Fluffy', 'Mittens', or something along that line.

    However for a big black dark horse I also would want to call it 'Night Train'. Unfortunately Night Train is also the name of an extremely cheap fortified wine that is a big hit with people who drink it out of the bottle.

    My brother frequently says that if I ever got a gelding, I should name him "Chasin Bourne" due to my love of Matt Damon in the Bourne movies.
