No matter what kind of show im running... I use my horses registered names. So... (the LA in my horses names stands for Lynns Appaloosas.)
LA Storm (Ty)
L A Malibu Maui (Roxy)
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.
I only had 1 registered horse, but these are all my boys:
Poco H. Cutter--Cutter was his barn name. He passed away June 18, 2005 :[.
Toby Keith--I call him Toby for short most of the time, though I call him Toby Keith a lot also.
Jack--I just called him Jack. I only had him for two weeks before he died :[. Didn't get a vet exam before I got him. Advice to all, GET A VET EXAM BEFORE YOU BUY!! Haha.
Snickers--I just call him Snickers. Sometimes I like to call him Snickerdoodles :].
Bud--Not much of a nickname you can get out of that. I refer to him as "big ole boy" a lot though.
Ack I forgot some from my OP! What a bad owner I am
Sultan's Concubine (Connie)
Kit's Bo M. (Beaux)
Molly's Cat (Molly)
Sir Arthur (Arthur)
Steel Soldier (Steely)
Sage (Sage) I don't remember if she was registered but I was named after her lol
Steel the Glory (Glory) That will be the name of the foal of Lulu and Steel Soldier ........... (Lulu) She needs a show name for fair this summer!! If anyone wants to help me out there, here's some pics of her while she's pregnant:
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 :)
Many times a person doesn't really like their horse's registered name, so they decide to show them under a different name. You have to show a horse under their registered name if it is a breed show or anything that needs to be tracked.
