naming the model horse
This document was created to provide an easy reference for the customs, traditions, and registry requirements for naming various breeds of horses. Specific breeds have traditions which are followed in naming horses. Some registries have rules as to how a horse may be named. I welcome any additional information about traditions or naming rules I may have missed. A few definitions:“Family” Names - A word or words (or variation of these words) that commonly appear in a particular breeding family.Farm Prefixes - A word or words that precede a horse’s actual name and identify the farm where he/she was bred. This list was last updated November 6, 2006 - an updated list will be COMING SOON!!
