The Percheron Horse Association of America is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the purebred Percheron Horse.
In 1876, a group of Percheron breeders met in Chicago, Illinois, and formed the Norman-Percheron Association and the first stud book was started. This was the first purebred livestock association formed in the United States. The following year the name Norman was dropped. In 1905, Percheron breeders again met in Chicago and formed the Percheron Society of America which continued until 1934, when our present association, the Percheron Horse Association of America was formed as a non-profit organization.
