You're really doing great so far! How many colors in your set do you have? Layering is going to be a great skill to learn, even if it's just 2 layers. When you look at a horse, look at it with a colored eye & look for colors... In bays you'll see some yellow hues, browns, a little bit of black, and maybe red/orange (always keep in mind lighting). When you build up your colors, you're going to create a more lifelike feel to your drawings .

Keep up the great work!

I have mixed together a few different sets so I have a fair few pencils. When I layer do I say for a more dark area put down a whole layer of blue (or purple) and then go over it with the brown?

I lay my darks on first, and then overlay them with the other colors. Others start light, work to dark... it depends on what you find works for you! I found this fantastic 2-part tutorial that might help?

I think you are off to a great start here. I thought I'd post a couple pictures you can use for practice.
