Musical ride wannabes: Six RCMP foals get their names in contest for kids

October 09, 2015 - 12:31 PM

OTTAWA - Six foals who could one day strut their stuff in the RCMP's musical ride have been given their names.

Maple, Maya, Mavrik, Minion, Minuit and Monark were the winning entries submitted by children from across the country.

All the names in this year's contest had to start with the letter M.

The foals were born at the RCMP breeding farm in Pakenham, Ont.

The winning entries were from kids in Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan.

The youngsters will receive a framed photo of the foal they named and a certificate signed by the RCMP commissioner.

They'll also get a signed RCMP Stetson worn by a musical ride member, a set of musical ride trading cards and a horse-and-rider pin.
