DOMESTIC AND WILD HORSES
Horses in captivity, that is domestic ones, normally live between 30 and 40 years.
However, in freedom, they live somewhat less, some 25 years, due to the lack of care and the greater probability of death from diseases that are cured in captivity.

Also, when large lands are available, they are kept in outdoor yards.
AND WHERE DO THE WILD HORSES LIVE?
In the case of wild horses, they live in open fields. Normally in meadows or plains. Being possible prey animals of other predators, they prefer open spaces because they can control a large area around them and thus feel more secure while they feed or graze peacefully.
As for its location in the world, the horse is spread all over the world, except for the extremely cold areas such as Antarctica. Depending on the area, there is a predominance of specific breeds of wild horses (there are almost 200 different breeds of horses). When living in freedom, wild horses feed on small shrubs and plants.
