RCMP launches foal-naming contest

Portrait of Mare and Foal for the "Name the foal contest" at RCMP Breeding Farm in Packenham, Ontario

Contest winners will be announced in May, along with the winning names, on the RCMP social media and website.



The RCMP are hoping for some help with names that start with the letter ‘R.’ to name their new foals!

Canada's National police force has welcomed new foals born at the RCMP breeding farm in Pakenham, Ontario, and these new additions are special – they may grow up to become Musical Ride horses!


Kids can submit entries online, or by mail and follow RCMP on Facebook.

All names have to start with the letter ‘R’, participants must be 14 years old or younger and only one entry per child is eligible.

The entries have to be submitted by April 30th.

Up to 12 winners will be selected from across Canada, which will include one winning school class entry. School class entries are a great opportunity for students to work together and come up with a name.
