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?
