Show names?

I've had my boy 4 years, he's called prince. He's my little 14hh showjumper and I would like to
Give him a show name but I can't think of any? Any ideas?!

Do you know the name of his sire or dam? Often, horses are given "show names" with a combo of their parent's names, or that reflect the season or weather they're foaled in or something similar. My favorite first horse was Prince and that was plenty for me. For your Prince, I like "Prince's Butterscotch" to me.

Anyways, have fun!

Prince Charming sounds very good!
I was going to suggest that too.
Hmm, how about...

Royal Prince?
King of Hearts?
Pep Talk?
Royal Highness?

Just a few ideas! He is handsome!

Show names for me, was always the horse's registered name, where I often used some names from both the sire and dam.
Barn names, or nicknames, the horse sorta earned along the way
For instance, Smilie's registered name is Miss Kilo Bright. Her dam was by the AQHA stud KiloMax , and her sire was a Might Bright bred Appaloosa stallion we had
Smilie, came from her facial markings, with my husband remarking when she was born,'now there is a real Smilie"
