I assume they came from areas of the planet where the ice-age or other global changes didn’t occur. The continents have been moving around the planet for millions of years, there is a good chance other types of horses moved and evolved during this process?
The last Ice Age saw the extinction of both North and South American horses, which disappeared from both continents by about 10,000 B.C. But Equus continued to flourish on the plains of Eurasia, and was reintroduced to the Americas by the European colonizing expeditions of the 15th and 16th centuries A.D.
Harjeet is right
