Iowa Draft Horse & Mule Breeders Association
History and Information
The IDH&MBA originated in the early 1960's. With about 100 member families, it continues to be one of the prominent draft horse and mule associations in Iowa. This association funds a yearly scholarship for a young Iowans who are interested in working within the draft horse and mule industry.
In 2017 the association encouraged the start-up of local chapters of the state association. The South-West, North-West, South-East, and East-Central chapters were established. The South Central Iowa Draft Horse & Mule association has been an active club since 1984, and had cooperated with the State association on several projects to promote drafts. In 2018 the SCIDHMA voted to become a chapter of the Iowa Draft Horse & Mule Association.
