Finding a befitting name for your Quarter horse can be challenging. There are several approaches you can use to choose the best name for your horse.

If you are looking for a catchy name for your Quarter horse, you are at the right place. We have gathered 100 + Quarter horse names, so you can easily find a well-suited name for your equine fellow.

But before we move forward, there are certain rules put in place by the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) that you need to know if you are planning to get your equine fellow registered with them. So, let’s check them out.

Guidelines for Naming Your Quarter Horse

According to the AQHA, there are certain rules and regulations that every Quarter horse owner needs to know if they plan on registering their horse with the AQHA in the future. These rules, as stated on their website, are being put here as well to help you. They are as follows;

  • The horse can be named anything you like. Although many people prefer to, you are not required to name your AQHA foal according to pedigree.
  • The name cannot be longer than 20 characters (this includes blank spaces and numbers and is simply because AQHA computer systems are not programmed to allow more)
  • Arabic numerals (1234…and so on) are permitted at the end of a name, so long as there is a space between the name and number placed on the end.
  • Punctuation marks are not permitted (so if you are looking at DASHS DIGIT, there is no apostrophe in the word ‘dashs’ because it is not allowed per AQHA rules).
  • Keep the name clean. (The AQHA does attempt to red flag anything that seems inappropriate.)
  • You have to have written permission from John Wayne to name your horse John Wayne (The same goes for every celebrity).
