For years, draft horses and mules were instrumental in the transportation of goods
and the farming of crops.  With the innovation of gasoline-powered equipment, the
number of draft horses dropped rapidly, almost to extinction.

horse and mule industry has experienced dramatic growth in popularity.

These animals are known as gentle giants for their calm temperament.  While

by excelling in many disciplines.
The association is constantly working to promote all interests of the draft equine
industry including but not limited to the following:
