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.

Sorry for the long awaited update. Apparently there was something wrong with my old world, maybe because I already bred them, I don't know. I've made an achievement world in which you can get basically all achievements.
You first need to kill the ender dragon and then enter the portal, to get back to the overworld. Then, head back to the end of the alley, and then go to the area on the right which says update 0.15. In here, you should be able to find a chest with both horse and donkey spawn eggs, spawn both of them, tame both of them by keep trying to ride them.
Taming the horse should get you another achievement.
Then, give both of them a golden carrot, to unlock your achievement.


(Old solution)
I've copied my world and placed this folder on dropbox. You just need to unzip it before you can use it. In this world there's a donkey and horse right where you spawn. You might have to wait a little before you can breed them again, though they are tamed and you don't need to go through all the trouble of finding them and getting golden carrots. Download the "artificial selection" world.

You first need to tame a donkey and a horse. Then feed them a golden carrot. If you're using my world, wait a while before you can feed them again, since they are already fed and tamed.
