If you buy a registered horse, do you have to show it under that name?

Or can you give it a different show name?

Um I dont believe you can change its show name once they are registered. Sorry! But I mean at a show you could probably call it whatever you want....

It probably depends on the registry and its specific rules but for APHA you can re register under another name but only if the horse has no registered offspring.

My mare had already had two foals when I got her so I couldn't change her registered name...but I show her under a name I made up :) You can show under whatever name you want unless you're going for points for a specific registry in which case I would think they would require the registered name for tracking purposes.

Well I know for a fact that my current horse(registered Westphalian) has a different registered name with the Westphalian registry than he does with USEF. I don't have his actualy papers so I don't know about changing WB registry names.

I had a QH gelding that it was like $60 or something to change his registered name and I had a paint mare that was the same way.

I have no idea how it goes once the horse has offspring but I know you can usually change them but, its gonna cost ya.

I don't think that the Jockey Club will let you change a name once the horse has run a race but, I am not positive on that.

I think If you are changing a name that has been given to a well bred horse by a stud then you are cheating the stud.
They have put time,effort and finances into breeding that horse and deserve the recognition if it does well! A stud prefix attached to a horse that does well is brillaint advertising for the stud!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

APHA said I could not change my mare's name for any fee at all since she had foals that had already been registered.

You can use whatever show name you want, but as Hoofprints said, if you are going for points, at least with the Arabian horses, and APHA, AQHA, ApHA (I hope thats appaloosa), you have to use the registered name, so they can add the points to the appropriate horses, like some Arabs that have the / and + after their names, because they've gotten titles. If you don't like her registered name, and aren't trying to get points in breed shows, then you can use whatever name you like.
