About This Quiz

Horses: they're innately fascinating to us. Evolving from the lowly, pig-sized eohippus, horses became tall, strong, and strikingly beautiful animals. Of course, they had some help from us humans - we recognized their usefulness and bred them to be our helpers in a variety of important endeavors. This includes exploring and colonizing new territory, hunting, transporting vital goods, and running the farms and ranches that provided us with food. In addition, humans have bred horses for specific recreational activities - racing, of course, and also show jumping and pleasure riding. 

Because of all this, horses have a wide variety of breed characteristics. Need a horse for long, difficult overland trips? Either the Arabian or the Mustang would be useful to you. Spend a lot of time in the saddle every day? The smooth gait and riding comfort of the Tennessee Walker would help. Need to move something really heavy? A drayhorse, like a Percheron or Clydesdale, is the go-to horse. 

All of these varied and remarkable breeds are reflections of the humans who shaped them. So, even if you don't own horses, there's likely a breed that you closely resemble. Uh, in your personality, we mean - not your looks! Find out which one is a match for you with our quiz!
