    Show Name Opinions?

    So this year, I used I'm going to Be King as my horse's show name. Its kinda long though, people ALWAYS get it wrong (I Am Going to be king, going to Be King, I'm Gona be king) and its getting a tad annoying. I'm not going to be showing in the same series that I showed in this year, so I'm thinking about changing it.

    I've come up with two that are shorter and easier to get right.
    King's Ransom
    Sky King
    At the moment I'm leaning towards Sky King.

    My horse is a 2002 Quarter horse. The horse jumping in my avatar. I'm open to any suggestions or opinions :] Thanks!

    King of the Wind? I guess that's just as long as your original name, but I love that name...love that book. I think I"ve read it 30 times!

    King's Pride?
    King's Jewel?
    Divine King?

    I think no matter what we do announcers are going to mess up our horses names. I am willing to put money on it that if I changed D's name to "horse" our announcers would mess it up. His name is Dartanion and the most common mistake is "Dartman!" or "Dartania" I just hollar over "It's Dartanion" and smile. On my entery forms lately I'll write his name something like this:

    Dartanion (Dar-Tan-yon) just to help them out lol

    Did you want king in the name?

    Jumping King
    King of Jump
    King Me
    Blue King
    King of the ring?

    Gee, I like I'm going to Be King. As said, they'll screw it up no matter what you do, so why stress it?

    I agree with the above post I'm going to be King is a nice name but I feel ya when the announcer screws up the horses name. Although for me its the horse and rider's last name lol

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    & yeah, its really not worth stressing about, but between my last name and his show name, theres always something pronounced wrong. I even corrected them and they still got it wrong, & we showed at the same place with the same people the entire show season! Haha

    The thing that really sent me over the edge was that someone spelled his show name and my last name wrong on our end of the year certificate. That annoyed me a little bit xD
