About This Quiz

Horses have been one of humanity's greatest allies and friends since the dawn of civilization. We have used horses for all sorts of things, from making war on each other to transforming the size of the field that we can plow in a single day to radically improving how far and how quickly we can travel. Horses helped us guard and shepherd our flocks and herds, and helped us haul everything from stone to coal to barges. We've since moved on to using horses primarily for pleasure, as they work with us to ride, to race, and to drive carriages for pleasure.

Of course, different types of horses have become specialized to help in all of these endeavors, and even though some of them are now obsolete from a functional point of view, they very often still have some sort of modern, more recreational purpose that is similar to their previous role. That's why we still have mustangs, quarter horses, thoroughbreds, Welsh ponies, and Clydesdales. They all have different temperaments and strengths. Some are flexible and fast; others are stocky and very strong. Some are more feisty and high-maintenance while others are solid and sensible. Which one of these you feel the most connected to is the one you might have used in another time as your primary colleague, friend, and companion. Let's find them!
