The word equus is defined as the genus Equus, which is the name of the genus to which such animals as the horse, the ass and the zebra belong. The horse belongs to a species which is known as Equus caballus. The modern-day horse, which belongs to the species which is known as the Equus caballus, evolved in its present form (the form in which we know and can recognise them now) approximately one million years ago.

The species which is known as Equus caballus migrated from the continent of North America to the grasslands which are located all over the world. It was from here that they further developed into many different breeds and types. Equus is the single living genus which belongs to the family which is known as the family Equidae. The family Equidae is the family to which such herbivorous animals as the horse, the ass and the zebra belong.
