As the achievement description says, you will need to mate a horse and a donkey to produce a mule. Getting a horse and donkey to mate requires a bit more work than the other animals in the game. You need to feed each of them either a Golden Apple or a Golden Carrot. Horses and donkeys can be found in grassy plain biomes.

To craft two Golden Apples, you will need 2 regular apples and 16 Gold Ingots. The apples can be obtained from oak tree leaves at a very low rate or sometimes from village chests. The Gold Ingots need to be smelted from Gold Ore mined deep underground with an Iron Pickaxe in about the bottom 30 layers of the world.

To craft two Golden Carrots, you will need 2 regular carrots and 16 Gold Nuggets. The carrots can be found in almost every village you encounter and the Gold Nuggets can be "crafted" by bringing Gold Ingots to a crafting table and breaking them into 9 Gold Nuggets per ingot.

As Gold Ore tends to be rare to find sometimes, I recommend making 2 Golden Carrots because you only need to obtain two Gold Ingots and break them into Gold Nuggets. If you're struggling to find a village to get carrots, only then would I recommend going for the Golden Apples.
