Horses were in America before the Spanish arrived, and the plains Indians already had them. from this source

Indicates not only were horses in America prior to the Spanish, but the North American Continent is where horses came from, they migrated over the Bering strait from Alaska and that is why the Mongols had them.

Alright, horses were here before. The paper still states that the evidence of horses still being in North America suggests that they were gone sometime after 1000 AD. Which means my point still stands.
