About This Quiz

The relationship between horses and human beings goes way back into history. Horses have provided transportation, raw power, and companionship to people, and we have developed a strong connection to this graceful and majestic animal over the years. As is the case with dogs and cats, the horse is an animal that has become closely connected to the human experience. In this quiz, we'll explore that connection on the very deepest levels.

Through natural selection and selective breeding, there has been a wide range of horse breeds that have developed over the eons, with each developing characteristic physical and temperamental features. In matching you up with your equine spirit animal, we'll consider both the physical and behavioral aspects. In the end, we'll present you with a breed that epitomizes the very essence of who you are.

Perhaps you are the kind of person who is drawn to taking on intense challenges and pushing yourself to the very limit. If that's the case, there's a likelihood that you will feel a connection to those horses that shoot out of the starting gate and strive to wear a blanket of flowers in the winner's circle.

Or maybe you're the type that just keeps plodding along, taking on whatever burden is added to your back. If that sounds familiar, we think you'll feel a kinship with a particular draught horse that we have in mind.

As they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Your equine spirit animal is waiting; let's getting trotting over to the questions.
