It's really great for your first time. Some suggestions:
- Neck is too long
- Really big ears
- His face looks a bit swollen...maybe make it smaller?

Nice job, though! :)

I agree with Cheval and you also need to give the horse more muscle on the shoulder. It looks very weak and not completely attached. I really like the hind-quarters though. Were you working off a picture or doing it by memory?

It looks good, just the head is a bit unproportional, the neck is a little too long, and maybe make the shoulder a bit wider/larger? good job though!

When you are stuck on what is wrong with a drawing I have had my art professors tell me to look at the work upside down in a mirror. This detaches you from your drawing a bit (if you have ever drawn something and thought it was fantastic and then come back to look at it a couple months later and went yuck! then you know what I mean by being detached) and a different view sometimes lets you see what you couldn't before.
