The Royal Canadian Mounted Police has a contest for kids and they're not horsing around.

"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," reads an RCMP press release.

"The RCMP is asking for your help in naming up to 10 of these adorable foals. Wouldn't it be cool if one of the foals you name is part of the world-famous Musical Ride someday?"

The contest started April 3, so get your imagination in gear. You'll now be able to submit your entries online or by mail.

To qualify, entries must meet the following criteria:

  • Names must begin with the letter "S";
  • Participants must be 14 years old or younger;
  • Only one entry per child will be eligible;
  • Contestants must live in Canada;
  • Online entries must be received no later than April 30, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST;
  • Mail entries must be postmarked on or before April 30, 2020
  • Winning names will be chosen by the RCMP Musical Ride and Heritage Branch. Up to 10 winners will be selected from across Canada.

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

Go here to enter the contest online.
