I believe that in G,G,&S, Jared Diamond used horses and zebras to specifically point out the differences between "domesticable" and "tameable", despite otherwise close comparisons morphologically and in social structure. IIRC, he also cited several unsuccessful attempts to domesticate zebras in recent centuries.
