Talking Saddlery Names!

So, I've been riding pretty much my whole life. I currently work in a local saddlery, but my dad has said that we can go shares into getting our own saddlery, and I'm so excited to be getting my own business in something I love!! But, I can't think of a name for the saddlery, as all the names I have thought of are already taken, so can anyone help?! Thank you

Is your father a horse person? I can't imagine why he'd be opening a tack shop, unless he's the entrepreneurial type who sees a need and has money to burn.

It's tough for a brick and mortar store to make a profit anymore, as people can just buy what they want online. The bigger places are doing okay, but a new up and coming business is going to have a long haul. Are you and your father prepared to lose everything? Because it could very well happen.

Instead of worrying about a name, you should be looking over business model plans, making a mission statement, and figuring out how you're going to maintain clients and financial momentum.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

He already owns his own business of designing websites, and we were planning on starting online first, so he can design and create the website and we can then sell online first to see how it does, and not order much stock first, because I currently work in a local family run saddlery, I understand that business isn't heaving at the moment, but his online part is doing great. My sister also works for equestrian clearance, and they are doing great online :) thanks for like the advice though :) wanting name ideas though x

I know tack places that use the owner's last name. If you have a simple sir-name or a name that rolls of the tongue easily you could use that. Also depends what discipline you are focusing more on, for a western place you could go more 'olde west' and for English you want more posh or abstract.
