It is difficult to get a register name changed but it defiantly isn't bad luck in my opinion. Horses grow into the names they are given.
I agree with Catriona, it’s like trying to get a new custom license plate for a vehicle. I am superstitious, but have been okay with name changing
I think you have to pay a fee to change the name. Nobody even looks at it. I don't see the point in it, but if you really want to then go for it. Has your horse showed yet? How did it do?
but what happens if the horse was registered name was ‘no name’ cause it literally has no name. Then would you think it’s okay?
I'd change a stable name but not a registered name. Not because of superstition, but because I don't see the point of going through the hassle for something that's not used on a constant basis.
There is no point in changing a horses registered name.
I don't think it's bad luck at all! the only difficulty is trying to find a name that isn't already being used that's why I think registered names keep getting longer. If you want to change it there is no guarantee that you'll get what you want to change it too.
