The Wild Rose Draft Horse Association (WRDHA) is a group of Draft Horse enthusiasts who banded together in 1994 with the goal of giving all Draft Horse enthusiasts in Alberta a strong presence.
Since that time the Association has become directly responsible for such worthwhile events as the Annual Draft Horse & Tack Sale held in Olds; Youth & 4-H clinics; The Futurity held in Rimbey; and Stanton’s Field Day held near Spruceview. They also support the Youth in most Alberta Draft Horse Shows.
The Wild Rose Draft Horse Association welcomes members to bring forth projects subject for approval. We welcome anyone with an interest in Draft Horses. Please contact Membership Director and Secretary, Barb Stephenson @ 403-933-5765 or email: email@example.com
