About This Quiz

Humans and horses have been working together for over 5,000 years. Of all the animals we've domesticated, none have come close to being as helpful to us, historically, as the horse. Dogs are great, but a dog can't help you travel from one town to the next. Or plow your fields.  The bond between human and horse is a deep one and for good reason. They truly are amazing animals, and the various breeds of horses have proven themselves to be as diverse and as interesting as people. They are noble, kind, hard-working, loyal, intelligent and they can even be funny. Spend enough time with horses and there's no doubt they have a sense of humor. Once you get to know horses it's hard to not be in love with them.

Now obviously you're a horse person and you probably even have a breed you consider your favorite. At least a top five. But those are the breeds you like for whatever reason. Things can get a little deeper, though. What breed resonates with you deep down? What breed exists in your soul, guarding you against the perils of the world? If you really want to know then you have but one choice! Take the quiz and find out for sure.
