Horses might have been domesticated in central Asia around 4000 BC and widespread in 3000 BC. Although there are around 400 different breeds, only one domesticated horse subspecies exists. These domesticated horses are used in different fields, from agriculture to recreational sports.

Their coat depends on their breed, varying from black to white, including browns, reds, and yellows, with a wide range of markings. The mane is also covered in coarse hairs extending along the neck’s upper side. They are primarily grazers that feed on grasses, but domesticated horses are often fed with a variety of grains as well as mineral and vitamin supplements.
