I've never heard of it being bad luck to change a horse's name. I wanted to change Abby's, but she knows it's her name and responds to it.

I agree with gypsy: Change it if you want. He's your horse.

I've changed every horse's name that i've owned. It usually took awhile before I settled on a new name but they've all changed. Some just because I could not stand the first name or it just didn't fit the horse's personality. Nothing wrong with that!!

I changed Gambit's name when I first go him, I say if you want to change it go for it.

We change all of the horses' names that are owned by the summer camp I work at. I think one we got a couple years ago was named "Star". She came with a gelding with some other name. We named them Shasta and Fanta. We got a couple more this summer that we renamed Ringo and Rampage.

My farrier is Scotish and he has told me that it is very bad luck to change a horses name. I have went along with it.

Well, as a HUMAN who's changed her name (first, middle AND last-a few times), I've had good and bad luck but do not atone any of it to my name change!

Chiil's name was: Hershey before I got her.

A name isn't just what suits the horse - it's a name that suits the horse to his/her owner. Personally, I think it helps with bonding.
