Toys For The North is a toy charity drive by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (R.C.M.P) for the children living in the most remote, northern communities in the Canadian North: Nunavut, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.
This Black Horse by the R.C.M.P is known as the Burmese which was Queen Elizabeth's favourite horse. It was gifted to The Queen in 1969. She rode the Burmese horse since 1969 during the Trooping of Colour Parade until 1986 when the horse was retired. After that, The Queen requested not to have any horse trained for her for the Parade and decided to attend the parade in a horse drawn carriage since.
