farmpony--I used to show an OTTB in Hunter classes. His stable name and show name were the same: Bob. I always thought it was the funniest thing xD

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

It depends... For low-level shows you're fine, but if a horse's passport and papers are required, then its paper name would have to do :P

Since I do barrels, I use his barn name. When we do our hunter jumper classes this year, I'll be using his registered name though. So it depends on what your showing in

For breed shows, you need to use the registered name. But as for local shows, you may use whatever you'd like. I saw before a registry that let you change the name for a fee, though.

Is your horse a 21 year old registered with AQHA? if so, you should have your papers changed to "Gelding" because there is a 1993 sorre stallion registered wth that name.
