''Arenahippus'' ("Sand Horse") was one of the segregate genera recognised by Froehlich (2002) from the previously polyphyletic ''[[Hyracotherium]]''. Froehlich's phylogenetic analysis showed that the three species assigned to ''Arenahippus'' formed a paraphyletic series with regard to more derived [[Equidae|equids]], but as this was not unambiguously supported, and the species were fairly similar, Froehlich refrained from assigning each species to a separate genus.
