Free Tips & Easy "How to" Instructions
In drawing most anything you can always simplify the object's basic form into a composite of geometrical shapes. Think of it as a form of sculpting. You start off with a rough blocky form of what you want to draw and then you shape it, little by little, to look like that what you had in mind.. or at least something close to what you had in mind. A little more curve in one side of a rectangle, a bulge in a circle, a little shading, and some detail here and there and voila! You have drawn a horse!
I know you are screaming "what about proportion" or "what about perspective", well, we aren't teaching that today. The example drawing below is out of proportion and has no perspective, but yet it is still a horse.
Since you will begin with circles and straight lines to build the basic shape of your horse it would be better to use a hard pencil and to draw the basic shapes lightly since you will probably be removing some parts of these initial shapes during the refining process.

It's as easy as that. To get a more lifelike and detailed drawing look at a few pictures of horses and study the horses' muscular and skeletal structure, also, play around with adding a little action to the horse's pose.
