How to Draw a Horse Head - Step-by-Step Tutorial

Step 1: Let's begin with the head of our horse. This will mostly be all snout. Drop a line straight down and curve it around to form the horse's nose. Bring the line back up and make a ridge for where the eye will go.

Step 2: Let's get some detail! Add the nostrils and give the horse a smile. Two circles for the eyes on either side of the face. Finally, two curved lines for the bridge of the nose.

Step 3: Now draw two almond shapes for the ears. Only close one end in a point but leave the other side open to the head.

Step 4: Draw a long line for the neck and add in the mane. A tuft of hair at the top of the head and then continue it down the neck!

Step 5: Your horse head is now complete! Is it a beautiful day for riding where you live?
