Full Answer

Domesticated livestock in Mongolia forced Przewalski's horse out of its natural habitat, and it nearly went extinct. As of 2014, it only lives in captivity.

Horses such as the mustang also range throughout North America. They largely live in Utah, Wyoming, California, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona, North Dakota, New Mexico and Montana as well as some islands off the East Coast. These wild horses first came from Spanish horses in the 1500s and have since been joined by numerous breeds, including quarter horses and draft horses.
