So I have been going thinking of starting a lesson program at my new place. There are no lesson barns within 30mins of here. So we have been in touch with the insurance company and we need to come up with a farm name and send it in with the liability release. We are having a hard time figuring out a name. Here are afew that we thought of, please let me know which you like or feel free to add your own thoughts!
I dunno, my veterinarian friend once told me to NEVER name an animal "Lucky" . . . although perhaps that doesn't apply to farms. Still, wouldn't want to tempt fate.
I don't love the names, except maybe Pot of Gold. They sound silly (Barely There? What's that supposed to mean -- the barn's not there?). What is your target market? I was told that it is good to have a business name reflect the business -- it is a way to market the business.
So instead of being called simply "Sugar Maple Farm", my farm's name is "Sugar Maple Farm Equine Retirement Boarding" on all publications.
If you wanted to focus on trailriding, "Happy Trails Farm" would fit, as another example.
However, if those names have personal meaning to you by all means go ahead and use them. My trainer's a fan of Lord Of The Rings and her barn is called Rivendell Riding Academy (note how "riding academy" puts across the idea that she gives lessons . . .)
I think AnotherRound hit the nail on the head with "Riding Academy" since that is what you are offering as SMF11 mentioned. It's like our farm - Southern Cross Guest Ranch. Guests can come and stay at our ranch so you already have an idea what we do just from the name.
We were looking at the portfolio for Behr Paint's exterior color combinations. We chose Shady Willow for the barn color, and my son suggested we name the farm Shady Willow Farm. Thankfully we do have a willow tree we planted a few years ago. There were actually several paint colors that would have sounded good as farm names - head on over to Home Depot!
