About The Book

Drawing a horse just standing alone on the page is tricky enough, but with the help of this book you’ll not only be able to draw as many as you like, but you’ll master the art of horses in action—horses rearing up, kicking out, pulling a plow, running through a field, and so much more. You’ll learn how to draw rodeo horses and race horses, military horses and farm horses. With easy step-by-step instructions, kids can learn how to draw:

A galloping horse
A rolling horse
A dressage horse
A Shetland pony
A pony family
A pony in a stable
And eight more!

Each spread features a unique horse or pony illustration with unintimidating and easy-to-follow directions. New lines are always drawn in red so that kids can see how the drawing builds from step to step. Experiment with markers, crayons, scrap paper, paint, and more! Once little artists grow confident in their horse-drawing abilities, they can use the skills they learn from this book to create their own personal masterpieces! And while you learn how to draw horses, you may even discover a few horse facts you didn’t know. Perfect for anyone who has fallen in love with horses and wants to explore their artistic side!
