Not here in Aus, but I think in the US many people make up their own show names.

I have owned:

Narrangullen Vodka (Vodka)
Wantley Wildcard (Wildey)
Lone Pine Josh (Bundy)
Jupiter Ballita (Latte)

So I am hearing that show names are the same thing as registered names? If that is so, how come so many people ask for help with a show name, I wonder....

It is fun to see all the types of names- people do get creative :)

In the US I believe people make up a show name that is different to the registered name and enter under it at shows - Though I don't think you can do it at breed shows for obvious reasons.

Here in Aus the show name is the same thing as the registered name, unless the horse isn't registered in which case you can call it whatever you like!

In the US a lot of people choose to change the registered name to be a show name of their choice. For example, we owned a TB mare who was registered before we bought her as Sultan's Concubine, which means.....a bad thing. I don't know if I wouldof taken it to the show ring lol!

We keep the registered name and show name the same because honestly if you want to earn points, you need to keep it the same. At little shows where it doesn't matter, I keep it the same because it helps the horse earn a reputation and get its name around.

Ricky is Deposition He doesn't have the stud name at the front, but his name is pretty much based from Statutory (Grand Sire) and Statement (Sire) keeping in line with the whole legal terms names.

Since I just do local stuff, and neither one of mine is registered, I can do whatever I want-so I have fun with them!
Currently have:
Second Chance (Frankie) who was also shown by my daughter 4-h when she was little as Bob's Big Boy (my hubby is Bob, and the horse is a draft X) Second Chance he came with, because he had a deformed rear leg when foaled, and the vet wanted to put him down. Breeder fixed him up and gave him a second chance!

Gutchur Six (Guinness) was Friendships Rocky Road (YUK) when I bought him. Gotchur six is in honor of my daughters late fiance, who was a Navy SEAL, and because this horse takes care of us, much like he did. (Gotchur Six means I have your back in SEAL-speak). :)

Last one I sold was "I only wear Gucci" (Beans)

My friend has Shine and Spin (a reiner) aka Jazz. Which I think is perfect!

I don't like my grade Paso Fino's show name. No one's ever shown him except my mom 18 years ago at some fun shows, but his is just his barn name Arthur, with an added "sir" before it: Sir Arthur. Kind of boring for a name we could have had fun with, but his leather halter says Sir Arthur so that's what's staying lol

Well here in the US, if you aren't doing breed-sanctioned shows with your horse you can enter them with whatever name you want as long as it matches the name on their coggins test.

For example, I have a Quarter Horse named Beau. His registered AQHA name in Dolly Observer, but I really don't like that because it's Dolly and he's a gelding... So, since we haven't, aren't and don't have plans to show in any AQHA shows, I've been riding him in shows as My Beau for the past 6 years.
