About Us


Welcome to Horsey Names, a horse blog founded in May 2024 by a team of seasoned equestrians with over forty years of experience in the saddle. Our mission is to share our extensive knowledge and unwavering love for horses with both seasoned riders and those new to the equestrian world, particularly those searching for the perfect name for their first horse.

Choosing a fitting name for a horse is significant because it’s a reflection of the horse’s unique personality and a testament to the bond between the rider and their equine partner. The name becomes an integral part of the horse’s identity, encapsulating its spirit and character. A well-chosen name not only honors the horse’s individuality but also resonates with the rider, enhancing the connection they share.

We’ve built a Horse Name generator to help you find the ideal name for your equine companion, complemented by in-depth guides that explore the latest trends in horse names.
