About This Quiz

If you are fortunate enough to have had a past life or several, then that means you're already a step ahead of those of us who are brand new. You've had a variety of exciting and pre-Industrial-style experiences. We sad folks who have only been here the one time enjoy many advantages, to be sure: we've never had to live without penicillin or birth control, or fight for decades to assert the legal personhood of women or minorities. We haven't had to deal with high infant mortality or a better-than-50% chance that we would never learn to read.

On the other hand, we will never know what it is like to live under a sky entirely free of contrails, enjoy affordable real estate, or have a horse for our primary mode of transportation.

Those who have had many lives, however, have probably ridden their way around most of them - at least, during the ones where you were fortunate enough to afford a horse in the first place (since of course, statistically, most of those past lives were spent entirely within a few miles of your birthplace). Some of those horses would be downright special, perhaps even mythological, depending on whether you believe the tales of their great deeds. 

Let's tap your past life memories and find out who your great steed really was!
