Elder Secrets gives contradictory histories. The Tusk Rider writeup suggests that they originated in the Second Age as part of an EWF cross-breeding program, while the Cult of the Bloody Tusk suggests they appeared after the collapse of the EWF due to inter-breeding.

The first struck me as the more likely and the more interesting from the perspective of Second Age stories, but I was careful to note it as a transitional period: I think they're always called Aramites, not Tusk Riders, and there's pretty little detail of them.
