Tell us what you think the bronze horse should be called

About the competition

We’re thrilled to have been invited to name the bronze horse that will form part of the War Horse Memorial. She’s a mare – a female horse – and we’d like you to tell us why you think it’s the perfect name for her. The winning unit will get to travel to Ascot on Friday 8 June to see the memorial be unveiled by a member of the royal family.

Each unit can only enter once, and must be available to attend the unveiling of the memorial. This form should be filled in by the unit leader. The winner will be notified by Monday 9 April.
