Welcome to the exciting world of the Drum Horse! This 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. The IDHA is working to bring this horse from type to breed.

We are very pleased to present the completed video! This will be played at Expos and other events where we are promoting the Drum horse. It will make it's debut at Equine Affaire this month in Massachusetts! We received some wonderful pictures from all of you that show off the beauty and versatility of this incredible breed. THANK YOU to all of you who sent them in! If yours weren't included it is only because they were either too small, or not good quality (fuzzy or blurry). This will be played on large screens so pictures have to be very large to maintain their quality for that. I believe we were able to include at least one from each of you who sent them though.

A BIG THANK YOU from the IDHA to Loretta Bradfield for the beautiful work she did on this! www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tcJmHPmwKQFeaturing the talents and abilities of the Drum Breed

IDHA is putting out the call for nominations! Both Janelle Harden and Taylor Westbrook are up for re-election and we have one vacant seat we would like to fill.

You will be putting in a minimum of 10 hours weekly if not more and you must be able to attend board meetings via Skype, so a good working knowledge of technology is a must.
