About This Quiz

Evolving from the lowly, pig-sized eohippus, horses became tall, strong and gorgeous animals. Of course, they had some help from us humans in that; recognizing their usefulness, we bred them to be our helpers in a variety of important endeavors. These include exploring and taming new territory, hunting, transporting essential 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 or the Morgan would help. Need to move something really heavy? A drayhorse, like a Percheron or Clydesdale, is your go-to horse. 

If you love horses, maybe you'd like to believe that a horse is your spirit animal. But which of these breeds would it be? No worries, we've created a quiz to help you figure out which of these noble creatures would be your spirit guide. Are you ready to find out? Saddle up!
