Show vs. Registered Name

I've been thinking about showing Vega sometime down the line. I have no idea in what, but thought it would be a cool experience, but what name do you use? Are their registered names their show names? Or are show names something completely different?

Vega's registered name is Impression In Time. Would, or Could I use that to show her as well?

I don't think there's a problem if you want to use their show or registered names for shows, unless, of course, it's breed shows.

As far as I have understood (I could be wrong)....

At show (breed or open) you fill out the forms and your horse is announced using their registered name. You would be riding Impression In Time - awesome show name (barn name Vega), I ride Isa Perfect Dream (barn name, Dez), Our mare, would be Dry Sark (barn name Dreamer), etc. I believe that people who have unregistered horses are free to make up a show name, which would be pretty much the equivalent of the registered name of registered horses. Obviously non-registered horses would not be at a breed show, so you would only see registered names at a breed show.

If you do a non breed show you can use whatever name you want! You're lucky she has a cool registered name. I grew up with a laid back slightly pudgy QH mare with the registered name "Spirit of Fury"! (what?!) Yeah, never used that name!

Thanks upnover!

That made me laugh, your qh's name.

It's cool to know if I do show her, I could use that name

A friend of mine has a qh with the registered name "Thorn of the Rose." I always thought it was quite odd... She calls him "Desperado." I think his former owners called him "Thorny." He's definitely not a "Rose." 16.0 and stocky as can be!

The concept of "Show Names" is new to me. (I guess because I don't really go to any major shows. ) I've always made up "barn names using the registered name, except the last horse I bought. His name was "The Desert Splash" but I didn't really want to call him "Splash" so I picked something sort of related to his registerend name: Mirage.

I love her reg'd name! However, if you're just doing little stuff for a while, you can experiment with different names... :) It's just when you want people to recognise her name for something that you want to keep it steady

Ahh ok. Thanks JDI

Yahh I love her red. Name too. It's so pretty. I have no idea what kind of shows I want to do with her yet. I'd just be happy when we can walk around and not have to break into a trot or canter
