100,000 BC+: Humanity may have domesticated horses by now-- at least in some regions of the world

-- THE ANCIENT HORSEMEN From Science Frontiers Digest of Scientific Anomalies ["http://www.knowledge.co.uk/frontiers/"] #29, SEP-OCT 1983 by William R. Corliss, citing Timothy Perrin; "Prehistoric Horsemen," Omni, 5:37, August 1983

Note that they are likely using horses primarily for pack animals and food sources. Humanity probably hunted and trapped horses for food for many millennia before they began actively trying to domesticate them.

After locating one, a man can run a horse down in three days or less [according to anthropologist William S. Laughlin]. Having a trained wolf to help might cut that down by a lot.

Note that the domestication of horses would have further intensified and expanded any warring notions among humanity during this time. For just as in the previous instance involving domesticated wolves, those people equipped with both wolves and horses would enjoy tremendous advantages over those not so resource-rich.
