Horses do not appear to have been domesticated until 5,000 or 6,000 years ago. This was a process that began at different stages all over the world. However, no one knows exactly when the first person decided that riding a horse was better than walking. Horse riding may have begun by chance when someone climbed on top of an older, calm mare.

However it began, the advantages of riding soon became obvious. Relatively long distances became more manageable, herding livestock and warding off predators became more efficient, etc. It didn't take long for these early riders to begin to develop the principles of horsemanship.

It also didn't take long before horses were pressed for service in war. China saw the first domestication of the horse around 2300 BC. War chariots drawn by horses were introduced to China around 1450 BC.
