Red face Thinking of Changing Show Names....

I keep seeing all these cool Dressage horses with Cool Dressage names and I've been showing Cin under his APHA registered name, which is NOT a cool Dressage name. In fact, it's as REINING/CUTTING as you can get Smokies Cinch Bet.

I have only shown him in 1 show, ever. He is currently registered with Nebraska Dressage Association under Smokies Cinch Bet, but I'M MOVING to Kansas City and will be showing through Kansas City Dressage Society, meaning I have to do a whole new registration with a new Dressage affiliate. KCDS shows under the same district as NDA, and recognizes most of the same BIG shows, but not necessarily all of the schooling shows, just some of them, which is what I show anyway. I could also stay in NDA and show under two different dressage entities, I think..not sure, but I don't really want to as I'm not really into trying to get tons of points and year ends and the such anyway. And, to qualify for year end in NDA, you also have to volunteer time which would be hard to do from Kansas City anyway.

So, would it be bad when I move to KC to come up with a cool Dressage name for Cinny. I'm not reporting his shows for points to APHA as we don't really show at any of the shows they recognize (except I think Cornhusker classic). If they did, I would use his APHA name, but most likely not going to happen.

My husband wants to keep it Smokies Cinch Bet because he thinks it's fun to throw his "reining/cutting etc" breeding in the faces of the dressage people...he likes having an obvious cheap western horse in there with their 10K Dressage horses.

What do you guys think?

By the way, I'm thinking of something like "Sinister Conundrum" or even "Pas de cheval" (which is a ballet term meaning "step of the horse").

Hmm...I would probably want to change it, too! I see where your husband is coming from, but he's not the one showing him.

I like Sinister Conundrum...I would help with names but I'm really bad!

Good luck!

Frankly I never understood the point of using a "specual" show name. Nobody cares anyway (and judges the least). I just use registered name for my qh (and yes, it's long and weird), and will use registered one for my paint if we ever manage to make it to the show.

Okay, playing off of a Sin/Sinister theme

"Sin Sational"
"Caballo Sin Nombre" - The horse with no name
"Dance on the Dark Side"
"Dance with the Devil"

I know it's stupid, and maybe kid school ish.... but when you walk into a dressage show with a horse named "Smokies Cinch Bet" you sort of get a bit snubbed and stupid remarks like "oh are you doing Western Dressage then?" People sort of snub and look down their noses at his breeding which is obvious by his name (his sire is Doc's Cinch Bet and his name makes it obvious).The ONLY thing that associates him this way, is his name. When most people see him, they don't even know what breed he is until I tell them or they see his name. He's been guessed at Morgan, small TB, Appendix, and one person even guessed an Arab cross.

For once I want to walk in on an even level with nobody making assumptions about my horse that they get when they see his name on the stall door or the show list. I want people to not snub me, my horse and I do decently but at the end of the day, the big Warmblood and "well bred" horse owners still won't give him credit. Instead we get "not bad for a western horse." :(

And... I do know of some people with very bad names that their horse are registered with... My friend's appy is registered with AAHA as "The Panty Raider"... Which of course, she never uses for anything LOL.

At least they aren't falling over laughing like when I haul out my 14.2 goofy lil gelding with a registered name of "Man of the Year"!

Through peals of laughter they then demand to know what breed he is "Morgan", which is then followed by Are you SURE? And You really have PAPERS for him!?

Yes, he has a really, really stupid name, yes he's a 100% papered Morgan with some really phenomenal bloodlines actually. His name just should have been OOOOPS or One Hell of an EXPENSIVE Ooops!

We have a morgan named Morgan(: Couldn't come up with anything at first, so we were just calling her "Morgan" and then it just stuck. She's a registered Lippit Morgan, but I can't remember her registered name... People always laugh at her name.

"This is Morgan. The morgan." xD

Do whatever you want with your painty boy. It is, after all, your choice!

The first Morgan ever's name was just "figure" which I guess some people wouldn't think of as "special" in anyway. Later he was named after Justin Morgan, his owner.... I think the name Morgan would be kind of special because of that.

I suppose(: Her name before we got her was Rosie or something... And I like I said I can't remember her registered name for the life of me.

She is a Lippitt, so she's closer to Figure than most ponies! XD
