If you’re a horse enthusiast and are planning on getting a mustang horse, then you will surely need the perfect name for such a beast. The list below should give you some interesting ideas for mustang horse names to pick from.
But before getting into the name list, let’s talk a little about this magnificent creature and its history. Mustang horses are believed to have descended from horses that came to the US with the Spanish conquistadors. They are very free-roaming and very hardy animals. This almost mythical creature stands out for its independence, speed, grace, but also hardiness, qualities that have made it a popular mascot in sports and other industries.
The last ice age, which happened around 11,000 years ago, eliminated all the prehistoric horse species that used to live in North America. This continent would only see horses again when Christopher Columbus came to the New World, bringing with him horses of multiple breeds from Barb, Arabian, and Andalusian ancestry. This is when the repopulation of North America with horses really happened. Although the horses that came with the Spanish conquistadors had a lot of important qualities, their hardiness really stood out. This important quality was one of the main reasons why the breed managed to survive on its own in the wild, many people calling it a breed made to survive.

Wild horses are nowadays quite the common sight in Both South and North America. These feral or wild horses are resulted from the stolen, strayed, or left behind ones. Native Americans actually started to catch them when they learned to horse riding. When they started catching them, they pretty much went overboard with this skill, a tribe getting to own over a thousand horses while a single Native American had close to a hundred. Some of these horses would be lost while nomadic tribes would move from one place to another. This is how these horses ended up scattered all around America and then bred freely.
