The Name Game – 2012′s Top Horse Names

Got a “Jack” in your barn? You’re not alone!

Every year, thousands of horse owners discover the peace of mind and convenience that come with the SmartPaks supplement feeding system. That means that every year we get to welcome thousands of new horses into the SmartPaks “stable.” And as every rider knows, a new horse in the barn means a new name to learn. The names we hear range from the run of the mill to a little more “creative” (just yesterday we welcomed “Doodle” and “Her Majesty”).

As part of our year-end tradition, we compiled a list of the top 100 horse names for the last year. Check out the list and see if your horse’s name made the cut!

    Gunner’s sire was called Guns N Roses, and his barn name was something like Rosto, which I think is cool!

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
