Welcome to the exciting world of the Drum Horse! This new breed of horse has come thundering out of the history books and into reality across the world. First used by the Queen of England in her ceremonial Band of the Life Guards. The Drum Horse carries the heavy kettle drums during parades and other pageantry.

Today, the Drum Horse is proving to be the ultimate heavy riding horse. A talented athlete, the Drum Horse can excel in many disciplines. Browse through this site and see what all the excitement is about…

As of January 1st, 2017: All IDHA Drum Horses, which are born on or after 1/1/2017, must be registered before their first birthday for standard registration price. Each year after their first birthday, registration price will double for each year that they are unregistered. This will insure timely registration of foals, proper transfer of ownership and proper naming.

Effective Immediately: You may only use a prefix when registering a horse if you are the breeder of that horse.
