Yes and no. If it's a rider only, than go ahead and change his name. Now if he does know his name and will come when called, why would anyone change it? A horse that drives is another deal. Your voice is one of your aids and you always start your driving commands by calling his name. Herm, walk, Herm, trot, Herm, step up... one syllable. He's really only responding to the H. That's one reason to not name a team with names that start with the same first letter.

Thanks for the link. I emailed this morning.

I guess as far as the name thing goes, I'll have to see when I actually get the horse. If I do end up with a team, it wouldn't be more than a pair. I think even that may stretch my budget, depending on where I decide to board. I'm thinking just one gelding would be more than enough at first. I know horses are like potato chips: you just can't have one! Hopefully the one will just last me a while. Lol
