Naming our newborns: Name the Foal contest

Hey kids, we have a contest just for you! Canada's national police force has welcomed new foals born at the RCMP Breeding Farm in Pakenham, Ontario. We're asking for your help in naming up to 12 of these adorable foals. Wouldn't it be cool if one of the foals you name is part of the world-famous Musical Ride some day?

The contest starts April 4, so get your imagination in gear. Once the contest goes live, you'll be able to submit your entries online. Check back here for details, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. To qualify, you must:

  • be 14 years of age or younger Footnote *
  • submit a name that begins with the letter V
  • submit only one entry
  • live in Canada
  • enter by no later than April 22, 2022 at 11:59 pm EDT

If you are submitting on behalf of a class, you must be at least 18 years old and teach children 14 years of age or younger.

Winning names will be chosen by the RCMP Musical Ride and Heritage Branch. Up to 12 winners, including one classroom entry, will be selected from across Canada.

Contest winners will be announced between May and June, along with the winning names, on our social media and website. The children whose names are chosen, as well as the winning classroom, will receive some great RCMP prizes.
