    I just went to the Merriam-Webster word of the day. Apparently my horse's hunter name is Nonpariel.

    My alternate name if choice is Conspicuous.

    Lets see... ignoring the fact I have horrified the hunters by showing my Tb's with their JC names, which I compete under everywhere, these would be the made up Hunter names...

    Lad would be Wacquoit
    Petey would be Chatham
    Lunar would be Quisset.

    Wacquoit bay is near where my grandparents had a house. Both grandparents owned homes on 2 parts of the Cape, Quissett and Chatham.

    Who when she was good, was very, very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid? Love it!

    A common misconception. Those ribbons are NOT $0.50! I know, because I've purchased them. (Of course, even the big-ass fancy ones don't cost nearly what a class fee is).

    I'll play.

    Breed Name: Reverence Astarte
    Barn Name: Star
    "Eventer"/Jumper Name: Star Appeal
    Hunter Name: Aphrodite, Venus, Isis, or Ishtar... or Surprise, or maybe Unexpected
    Her breed name has nothing to do with her lineage, but rather the fact that she was a surprise

    Breed Name: Sucha Special Spark
    Barn Name: Sparky, Spanky, Pudge, & Napolean
    Eventer Name: Napolean Dynamite
    Hunter Name: Capricious
    Sparky is like the girl with the curl - either very good or very bad, and I don't know which one I'll get!

    To be fair, while I might have been too cheap/ lazy to do the paperwork to change the mare's name, I think RF Amber Eyes was a stupid name. I'm not crazy about the breeder prefix/ suffix (although I understand its importance) and I really dislike when one is tacked on by trainers/ importers etc.

    That said, two of my three horses already have one word names-- Passing and Freeman-- and third, Miles To Go-- would probably be okay too.

    Love some of these names. Well, I do prefer one word names--so some of mine already sort have hunter acceptable names. And I really prefer to show under their barn name if I can too. Been lucky and had a few with decent JC names. Of just my current horses

    JC/Barn/Eventing/hunter name: Loveton

    JC/Eventing/hunter: Rockstina
    Barn: Roxie

    JC: Blame it on Bush
    Eventing/Barn: Porter (after the beer)
    Hunters: Porter--guess it would be accepted as it is a beer!

    JC/Eventing: Richie the Thief
    Barn: Richie
    Hunter: Phoenix

    JC: Isn't she Charming
    Barn/Eventing: Charm'ed NEVER be one anyway!

    Eventing: Muggle
    Barn: Prince
    Hunter: Minister

    LOL! Here's mine:

    JC: Your So Charming (yes, with this spelling)
    barn name: Charm
    Hunter name...No idea... She'd never be one because of her, um, unusual style over fences

    JC: Buck's Lullaby
    Barn name: Lula
    Hunter name: Lullaby

    Time to play my own game.

    Eventer name: Zizi
    Hunter name: Implausible

    Reasoning: 14.2hh, irretrievably skinny, turns like a BMX, very animated, has two speeds -- really fast and even faster. There is no way anyone would mistake this one for a hunter. She'd be escorted out of the warm-up ring.

    Eventer name: Niina
    Hunter name: Believable

    Reasoning: Nina (Zizi's half-sister) is a beautiful, elegant, classic TB. I have been told by knowledgeable people that I was 'crazy' for not showing her in the hunters. So guess what? That's what she'll be doing this year, while she's hopefully in foal, which should help with the desired fat look. While the rest of her family is wildly hot and really attack the jumps and course, Nina is happy to go around at a nice canter and look pretty. I have no idea how this happened. (And no, I don't really plan to change her name for hunters.)

    Eventer name: Misty Kiss
    Hunter name: Mistakenly

    Reasoning: Misty Kiss, who is all of three months old, already has a stripper/porn name. And at three months, it's quite apparent that she inherited her sire's high headset (yay!) and so doesn't look much like a HB prospect.

    JC/eventer name: Star Colony
    Hunter name: Colonoscopy

    Reasoning: Because he's very scopey.

    I'll play, though only one of mine would ever manage to be a hunter, and thats only if he paid attention long enough.

    JC Name: Seneca Wind
    Barn Name: Seneca
    Eventing Name: Cameraine
    Hunter Name: Persuasian (As in she would need to be persuaded to do everything)

    ApHC Name: Tu Classy To Cowboy
    Barn Name: Cowboy
    Eventing Name: My Favorite Spot
    Hunter Name: Attentive (As in he has NO attention span)

    Two years ago we were sitting in like 3rd after dressage when the gate people left the in/out gate openduring stadium and she bounced (literally) right out of the arena coming down a line and cantered down the road with me wrapped under her neck hanging on by her ears. Scared the bejesus out of everyone. I'm pretty sure I'm the reason the gate is always closed now. They still let us go XC (I reached up and grabbed the bit with my hands and pulled her to a stop) and she went clean.

    Elliot's hunter name would be Prevalent. He's 17.2 and wears an 87 blanket. There's a lot of him aka he's Prevalent.

    Hmm...let's see:

    Show name: Benefit of the Doubt
    Barn name: Ben
    Hunter name: Chaos (mostly because the definition of chaos is 'rampant confusion and disarray' and that would be us in the hunter ring )

    But I would note that you guys have overlooked the key exception to the "one word" rule.

    Names may be any # of syllables or words if they reference an alcoholic beverage.

    Have at it.
    Mighty Monster pony is Farnley Nightlock. (what the hell is a nightlock?)

    Show name PR Brandy Station

    Hunter name might be Aggravation (beverage related to my favorite college libation a Colorado Bulldog) which describes the last four years of dressage training!

    Fabulous Feral Fred is Hounds Run Formally Attired.

    Show name PR Swing Time.

    Hunter name has to be Astaire so Vineyridge and I can't be in the ring at the same time!
