Our Organization
 
History
 
The Old Dominion Draft Horse and Mule Association was incorporated in early 2011 with an initial membership of about one dozen.
 
Mission Statement
 
The Old Dominion Draft Horse and Mule Association, Inc. was organized exclusively for charitable, educational, and the fostering of interest in raising, breeding, care and use of draft horses and mules.  Our membership consists of a diverse group of individuals who volunteer their time and equine to support the goals of the organization as listed in our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws:
  • To promote and stimulate interest, encourage ownership and participation, advance, show, and advertise all breeds of draft horses and mules.
