How to Name Your Red Horse

You can take the easy route and simply name your horse “Red,” but with so many cute, fun, interesting, and unique names to choose from, why not be creative and think outside of the box? Your horse will have their name for a lifetime, so it should be something that you feel good about saying and that helps represent what your horse is all about.

After choosing a few names that you like, spend time with each one, and see how it feels when you say it out loud. Also, does your horse react to any of the names in any way? You should have a good idea of which name ultimately feels right for you and your horse. If you end up liking more than one name and can’t choose between them, consider giving your horse a first and second name, then use them frequently so your horse will respond to both of them at any given time.
