    Default Ideas for names for a new show series?

    I'm thinking about starting a new schooling show series since the one we've attended for years no longer exists. I'm a bit hung up on a name for the show. I'm sure you creative COTHers can help out!

    This will be a show for green horses and beginner riders, literally first time in the show ring for many of them, and will be hunter classes and maybe some jumper classes.

    We don't want to name it after the rented showgrounds or our farm name. Not too keen on a geographical name, either, because it may shift locations to different counties.

    I have "Simple Changes Schooling Show" in my head, which gives you an idea of the level of riding we expect to see.

    Anybody have other ideas? If we use your suggestion, we may send you a blue ribbon with the show name on it just for fun!

    I love that name!

    Since they're schooling shows, what about something academic?

    Academy Series


    We have some schooling shows in Illinois called 'Place to Start'. I think that's a great name too.

    When I was growing up we had the Sunshine Series in the summer and the Snowflake Series in the winter. I always thought those were cute names.
    Yes, her name was Bella before Twilight became a "thing."

    How about Simple Beginnings Schooling Series or Summer/Spring/Winter Beginnings Schooling Series?

    We have a series here called Great Beginnings, so what about Great Start or Fresh Start?

    Great Expectations Schooling Series? Easy Does It? Saddle Up Series?

    Simple Changes is cute.

    I like the Great Start or Great Expectations. Simple Changes is cute, but my first reaction was that it was a dressage series (i.e. changes = lead changes)

    My first riding experience was at a farm and the program name was Fun on Horseback. Maybe something along those lines to indicate low key and fun?
