If you want to make your own, here is an easy way to do it. (to make one that looks burnt into wood.)
Take a piece wood that your using as the plaque/name plate. Use a dremel to carve/engrave your horse's name into it. ( a small hand held dremel is pretty inexpensive)
Then take some black hobby paint (or a really good black marker) and paint inside the horse's name. Then take some dark wood stain (preferably the one that stains and seals in one) and cover the entire plaque/name plate. And viola! Your done...and it should look like you spent a fortune on it. :)
"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
