100 Fast Horse Names for a Quick Equine

Fast horse names

Horses are fast, we all know this, but some of them are undoubtedly faster than others. Some horse breeds such as the Thoroughbred or the Quarter Horse are specifically bred for endurance and speed respectively. If your horse is particularly quick, even if it doesn’t belong to a breed that’s known for its speed, you’ll want to give it an appropriate name. A name that adequately describes its power, grace, speed, and physical condition.

Below you will find a generous number of examples of fast horse names divided into two main categories: female and male.
