What to remember when picking a name for your barrel horse

If you’re going to name your barrel racing horse, you’ll need to check the association’s regulations. They have a list of parts of a name that won’t be allowed.

This way, if you have a list of names in mind before picking one for your horse, then you can know which ones are okay and which ones aren’t.

If you want to bring your horse to competitions, then think about how easy it will be for people to say its name. Don’t choose a name that is a word or a command.

If you are naming a horse, you can write what is good about the horse. For example, you could list their color, any unique qualities or physical aspects that they have, and where they came from.

You could also list synonyms for these things to find something that suits the horse as well as possible.

Also, instead of thinking about your horse’s name, you can think about their nickname or what they might like to be called. You can use this name when the showtime comes.

If you do not have a nickname, think about something that you and your horse share in common and make a connection with that.


We hope you’ve found the perfect name for your horse. If not, we encourage you to explore our list of over 150 great barrel horse names and find what suits you best.

Whether it be a famous cowboy like Roy Rogers or an adorable Disney character such as Dumbo, we have something that will fit perfectly with your favorite animal.

Happy naming; we can’t wait to see which one is chosen.
