No one really knows for sure since horses are believed to have been around on earth for at least 55 million years and horses are known to have originally come from Asia 55 millions ago and then around 4000 BC spread to North America and then America.

Horses also became extinct in North America between 11,000 to 13,000 years ago but then the horses came back from extinction in Mexico and then spread back to America.
