Summary:
Let $(M,\mathcal{F})$ be a foliated $m+n$-dimensional manifold $M$ with $n$-dimensional foliation $\mathcal{F}$. Let $V$ be a finite dimensional vector space over $\mathbf{R}$. We describe all canonical (${\mathcal{F}}\mbox {\it ol}_{m,n}$-invariant) $V$-valued $1$-forms $\Theta \colon TP^r(M,{\mathcal{F}}) \rightarrow V$ on the $r$-th order adapted frame bundle $P^r(M,\mathcal{F})$ of $(M,\mathcal{F})$.
