    Question Registering a horse with two different associations?

    A girl on Facebook was talking about her horse's show name, and how it is one name for the Paint association and a different registered name for USEF.

    How does that work?
    I have a filly that I have considered changing her registered show name, and she is also registered through APHA. Can you really get a different show name through USEF and show them under that name instead, even if it differs from the horse's original registered name?

    USEF isn't a breed registry, so they don't care what name you use when you show. The name is only used to track points and awards, and is not a 'registered' name. The only time a registered name is used as a show name is at breed shows.

    For instance, my purebred Arabian gelding's registered name is DMD Casper. If I showed him at an Arabian breed show I'd have to use his AHA registration name. If I wanted to show him anywhere else, I could call him Mr. Anna-Banana Head and nobody would care.

    Having 2 different names could definitely happen with two breed registries, as well. Most (all?) of them require every horse's name to be unique. For that reason, they often require you to submit multiple names when registering and they go down the list until they get to one that's not already taken. And of course, the registries don't coordinate with each other, so if you had a horse that was eligible for registration in both APHA and JC (as an example) you might submit the same list of names to both registries, but APHA might accept name #3 from the list, and JC might accept name #4. In that case, the horse would have 2 different names.

    And as SR mentioned, USEF isn't a breed registry, they just register the horses to track their performance records. You can give whatever name you want to them and that's the name they'll associate with your horse.
