    Funnily enough there is no other Bounce House, Bounse Haus or Bounze Haus listed with USEF. LOL. Looks like we might have a winner....

    I like bergie's spelling of it, Bownse Howse

    Probably wouldn't get to mutilated spelled that way.

    I kinda like it spelled "Baunzhaus" if you don't think the announcers would butcher it. It looks like more of a play on WB names this way.

    I think Bounce House, however spelled is adorable.

    However, given his recent gelding, I have to mention "Oliver No Stones"....just for kicks.

    He is too cool! Bounce House fits him so well.

    I like "Olly by Golly" as a show name, out of the possibilities mentioned here. It's cute and endearing, and shows some personality. Naming a horse after an inanimate object (such as a bounce house) has always seemed weird to me. And if you use "Bounce House," all these variations on the spelling of the words just seem like silly stretches to make it more "European" or something. Remember the "KISS Rule"? For those not familiar, it means, "keep it simple, stupid". As for me, if given the opportunity to name a horse I like to select something that has personal meaning to me. Something coming from the name of my favorite artist, painting, song, poem, or a favorite place that I may have gone on vacation, or an image from my childhood, such as the name of the street I grew up on, etc. Whatever you name him, I wish you the best of luck in the ring!!!

    222orchids,

    You'd really find the rest of my horses names to be odd for sure! LOL. Bounce House fits in perfectly with all the other weirdo names we've used over the years.

    I like it as all one word, Bowncehaus or Bownsehaus. I think if you try to make it Bownshaus you'll get a pronunciation of "bown shaus."

    I do also like Ollie By Golly, though that just could be the part of me that named my Socks mare Foxy Socks because it was fun to say.

    Another vote for Olly by Golly. Also if you ever get bored with him, could you send him my way? Because he's completely gorgeous!

    I had a rabbit named Frisbee once.

    And my horse's USEF name is One Man Band. Though he possibly won't ever show because he consistently maims himself every time we plan to show.

    So my point is - I also like weird names.

    I like this spelling, it's fun and shouldn't get too hacked up by the announcers.

    And for your future consideration (for future horses):

    Twilight Sentinel

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twilight_Sentinel

    As a teenager, I was waiting to go into the ring at a show and I remember this assistant trainer from another barn prattling on about "twilight sentinels" in vehicles and I kept thinking, "wow, this chick is weird." For some reason, I will always remember that.

    Bowncehaus might get pronounced as "Bouncy House" but that would actually be hilarious and cute.
