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.

Check out Audrey and her Drum Misty. What a pretty pair!

"This was Misty my Drum mare and I in our home town parade. She had only less than 60 days training when I rode her in the parade. This was in 2016."

Thanks for sharing Audrey Lorius!

The glitch in the online forms has been resolved or you can scan and email me the documents to get the application started until the hair arrives for DNA. Sorry for any inconvenience! ...
