Welcome to the Virginia Draft Horse & Mule Association!
If you own, work, breed, exhibit, pull, log with, or simply admire heavy equines, mules or  donkeys, this website is for you!



 

We are sorry to announce that our Field Day scheduled for October 3, 2015 at the Simms Farm located on St Rt 460 has been cancelled. 


We have had over 5 inches of rain these past several days and can possibly get up to another 5 inches this Saturday from Hurricane Joaquin. 


After speaking with the farm owner, we do not have a re-scheduled date at this time.









VDHMA provides many opportunities to work with, learn from, and teach others who share an interest in draft horses, mules, and donkeys. Association members have wide-ranging interests from farming with draft horses and mules to driving elegant carriages; from trail riding to dressage; from showing at halter to competing in pulling and log skidding contests; and from breeding and raising stock to caring for animals retired from the field and the show ring. Ownership of a horse, mule, or donkey is not required to be eligible for membership--just interest and enthusiasm!

Virginia Draft Horse and Mule Association, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
