Horse habitat

Horses are found in almost every country in the world and every continent except Antarctica. For example, the Abyssinian is found in Ethiopia, the Budyonny comes from Russia, Deliboz is from Georgia and Armenia, the Egyptian came from Egypt and the Colorado Rangerbred comes from the Colorado plains.

Preditors

Predators of the horse include humans, mountain lions, wolves, coyotes and even bears. The fact that horses are prey animals helps to explain some of their behaviors. When horses encounter danger, their fight-or-flight response is almost always flight.
