NAMING YOUR TRAKEHNER


The CTHS Constitution(see p. 11) requires that a foal's  name should begin  with the same  letters  as the DAM's name. This is  in the Trakehner tradition as begun when the breed was first established in the 18th century. Names can only be 25 characters long.(This includes spaces & punctuation.)

It is very important to give the horse a name that will see him through all stages of life. A name that may be cute for a foal may sound pretty silly in the show ring.  Names can be changed  but have a way of persisting  even after  being changed.

At the time of registration our data is checked to make sure the name has not already been used. If it has,  "2nd"  or "3rd"  is added to the name. In the case of registered horses coming from another country or another registry we have to stick with the name as presented.

Some breeders add identifying initials to the name. This is a good way of avoiding "2nd" or "3rd" etc & of distinguishing horses with similar  names.

Once a horse has had offspring a name change is not allowed.
