The horse has evolved over the past 45 to 55 million years from a small multi-toed creature, Eohippus, into the large animal of today. Humans began domesticating horses around 4,000 BC. While the horse evolved in the Americas, it became extinct between 8,000-12,000 years ago; reestablished on the continent when the Spanish arrived on the American mainland in the 16th century. There are more than 300 breeds of horses, with a wide variety of uses. With 6,000 years of history, the connection between horses and humans is a powerful relationship.
