I had a horse that couldn't be registered, and i still gave her a show name. I just called her cracker for short, and named her K.W.S.'s Firecracker for shows. Since she was born on the fourth of july. But yes! Totally give her a show name. It makes you sound more professional i think thank just a barn name. Just when you're filling out the paperwork for a show right down the name you want, which would be the show name you come up with. The people at the shows i went to didn't give me any problem.

Thank you so much! That is such a cute name, love it. I will definitely give her a show name now that I know it's okay to! Have any ideas for my pony? Her name is Pocahontas. I was thinking either Colors of the Wind, or White Feather (since that was the real Pocahontas' "secret name"). Let me know what you think! Thanks so much!

I had a 14.1 hh Barrel Racing pony for years that did awesome and he was not registered and the people that had him before me called him Buster, So I made up a show name of "The DustBuster", He was a great horse and we showed on the larger barrel circuit for all of Atlantic Canada for years, I never had a problem at all.... So the answer is Yes, you can make up a show name if your horse is not registered as long as your not going to show a specific breed circuit like the AQHA shows and what not, then you would need a registered QH and so on.

No. They name the horse and then register

Well, Pocahontas CAN'T be registered. I'm asking if people normally give horses show names when they cannot be registered.

Most places require the horse to be registered to show it as well as having papers and they go by the registered name....

Well, I'm just doing small shows with her (and no breed specific shows), like 4H and shows a little bigger than that. They don't require registration.

That is different... But you still have to provide up to date vet papers on vaccinations and health and it would be up to the club as to your call name for the horse/pony and rider some require registered names some don't either way have fun

If your horse is unregistered, there is no way you can register it. Both sire and dame have to be registered. And some people give their horses nicknames that contain some of the registered name. Like my horse's name is Sheza Dakota Rose, we named her Dakota

Well, that wasn't exactly the question. We know she can't be registered, and her name is already Pocahontas. I was asking if people usually give their unregistered horses show names.
