The old saying goes, “You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.” By the same token, you shouldn’t buy a horse solely off its color, or its name, or its favorite TV show. However, sometimes you do stumble upon a horse with both an awesome show name that stands out — AND it can jump! Here are some stunning hunters and jumpers with eye-catching names to stand out in the ring. These horses are from Canada, Illinois, and New York.
