About This Quiz

If you were a rare horse breed, which one would you be? Do you have the beauty and sensitivity of rare Arabian horse, the strength and adaptability of an ancient draught horse, or the unpredictability of an elusive wild horse?

In this quiz, we're going to ask you questions about your core personality qualities, including the Big Five personality test traits: extraversion, agreeableness, openness, neuroticism, and conscientiousness. We want to know how introverted or extroverted you are, whether you're hyper-responsible or very chill, how open you are to wacky new concepts and whether you're able to go with the flow when situations go south. Through your answers, we'll be able to gauge how your temperament lines up with those of some of the world's rarest horses. It might sound silly, but like these gorgeous creatures, you're a unique and precious presence in this world!

Once you've told us all about yourself, we'll be able to match you with one of these special breeds. We hope that understanding which rare horse best represents your personality helps you to gain a new appreciation for your own individuality. Are you ready to find out who you really are? Roll up your sleeves and take this quiz!
