How Much Do You Really Know About Horses?

Do you really know about horses? Do you know about the general care of them, season to season? Could you care for a horse all by yourself, with no outside help?

You can finally find out with this well-tailored, detailed quiz! I have spent a long time on it, making sure that you can get an accurate result. It asks you about the care of horses and correct riding and horsemanship. The questions are questions that a horse expert would not miss out on. Good luck! The first few questions lead you through a day looking after your horse. Please note that you do different things in different seasons when caring for a horse, but the correct answers in this quiz are ones that you would do EVERY DAY, no matter the season. Again, good luck and try your best!
