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
