I loved this quiz very good I especially enjoyed the breed question I knew it was an Arabian because of the sculpted face and high tail the other questions I knew because I ride actually I just started riding my second lesson will be soon. Horses are sooo wonderful I try to learn everything I can most horse quizzes I ace but this one was a challenge I liked it because I learned. P.S. Sorry bout miss spelling and grammar mistakes I’m a kid
