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…

The International Drum Horse Association is the sole registry dedicated to promoting and preserving the Drum Horse World wide.

Dear all....I just want to thank you all for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Your private messages and chats of support were most welcome and made me remember why I love this breed so much - it has attracted some pretty awesome people. I will admit that my healing from loss will take much longer but I am ready to get back to work for the breed that I so much love. For those of you that are waiting for papers, I will get them in the mail in the next week, so you should have them shortly. For those that are waiting for correspondence....I will be getting back to emails too. I am very hopeful for a bright new year for us all. ~ Rebecca ... See MoreSee Less

As the 2017 show season comes to an end we have some exciting news we want to share with you all for 2018.

The International Drum Horse Association is proud to have partnered with JJ Horse Show and Event Management on the Drum division for all of their 2018 shows. There will be at least one breed show offered in each region for 2018 and two for many of your regions. You can find a list of the shows and their locations here: www.thehorseshowmanager.com/shows-events/2018-shows-events/

Jennifer Hoyt has been gracious in listening to input from the IDHA on classes offered as well as what judges are used for the Drum division. She will be using the IDHA rules and standard for these shows so make sure you are familiar with our rules if you are showing. You can find them here: drumhorseassociation.com/idha-show-rules/

These are going to be fantastic and very competitive breed shows! I want to stress that these shows are offered to ALL Drums of Gypsy, Clyde and/or Shire breeding regardless of registry affiliation! Mark these shows on your calendar and start planning now to attend as many as you are able. You won't want to miss them!
