I think all new artists love to try their hand at pencil horse drawings because they are simply beautiful creatures.

I was no different, I couldn't wait to try drawing a horse when I first started and you can see all my beginner drawings here.

Line number 2: Draw another curved line from the top of the head to the withers (the highest point of a horses shoulder).This is the top line of your horse’s neck. Line number 3: Draw a curved line from the bottom center of the horse’s chest toward the rump.This will give your horse a deep chest, ample belly and a flank (the area where the back leg attaches to the body).

There are ways and means of achieving a decent drawing and this horse outline is a good place to start. The template is done in ink to make it better for printing purposes, should you need to do that.


With each horse drawing that you complete, you will notice a definite improvement on the previous one.

Please don't be discouraged if your pencil horse drawings don't turn out exactly right initially. That is one reason why pencil is recommended for beginners, because we can erase until we are satisfied.

Copy the outline until you're happy with your efforts. Once you have the outline right, the rest of the drawing will fall into place naturally.

In order to draw a Horse or Pony, you need a lot of practice and a good sense of proportion. If you are a beginner, however, perhaps it's a good idea to start with perfecting drawing the horse head. It is important to pay attention to its exact shape to convey the beauty and grace of this animal. It might also help you to refer to the actual photo of a horse's head as you draw. There is a separate lesson to drawing the entire horse though.

Step 1

Easy Horse Head Sketch

Start drawing a horse head with three circles. First sketch the initial contours, as they will be the basis for our drawing a horse head. Using # 2 pencil, draw three circles like so: biggest one on top, smallest one on the bottom, and a medium-sized one in the middle. Please try to replicate my drawing in this step.

Step 2

Draw the contours of the horse's head. Work on the tentative contours of the horse's snout and head without pressing too hard on your pencil in case you might need to correct some lines later. Add a tiny circle to the largest circle that will be the horse's eyeball.

Step 3

How to draw horse's ears, nostrils, and neck. Place the ears on top of the horse's head. Outline the long neck and add nostrils and lip line. Now you can erase extra lines from your drawing.

Step 4

The horse's bridle. A bridle is necessary in order to be able to control a horse. Usually only horses in the wild or on the farm do not wear a bridle. First draw a small ring near the edge of the horse's mouth and a part of the bridle coming out of the mouth. As you progress through your drawing, add some more detail at every step. Draw a mane and perfect the shape of the eyes and nostrils.

Step 5

Finish drawing the bridle. At this step lesson how to draw a horse head, finish drawing the bridle and the ears. Aren't you proud to say that you're almost done?

Step 6

Add shadows to your drawing. This step is important and involves a certain sense of artistry in order to give the horse's head volume that makes it look realistic. It will suffice to add shadows with a # 2 pencil rather than coloring in your drawing. In this easy lesson, we used the simple steps of drawing horse head. I hope this tutorial has helped you.
