    Silly question!

    Ok, I haven't shown in like....11 years. I was going to start showing my TB when he was 4 but with 2 back to back pregnancies and 2 back deployments for my hubby it did not happen ;) I am planning to do some fun open shows this year!

    When I registered my horse I read a book and named him a french name A Mon Seul Desir because I wasn't thinking ahead. When I take him to shows can I just use his name in English so it's easier on the announcer....My Soul Desire?

    I know, it's a silly question but thought I'd ask.

    If you at open shows, you can use whatever name you prefer. I think the announcer would appreciate the English version. It's a great name!

    I believe that so long as it isn't a show that you are trying to rack up "breed" points for, that its okay to use whatever name you want. It's generally the upper level shows, specific breed shows, or any other type of show where you show papers as proof of horse breed ect., so that the points and awards can be properly given to the correct horse, that it really matters. For example, the Quarter Horse World Shows, and Arabian Nationals are when you would have to use the horse's name exactly as it appears on his/her papers.

    My real name isn't English, it's French and I just put the phoenetic spelling of my name in parenthesis on my entry blanks. :)
