Thank you! Yes those were my drawings and I should have more up tomarrow hopefully. Unfortunately I myself do not have a horse. I never have but I really want one. Socrates, the one I have the pic of and my avi, is not my horse but I do have a special bond with him. His owner has a lot of other horses and once I can save enough money and have enough experience she may let me buy him. I'm also hoping that she'll allow me to at least lease or borrow him next year for the Equestrian Team.

:( I don't have a horse either :(
I did once but I had a bad experience with her and only kept her for a week. I don't think I'll be getting another for a while, Ive got my exams, 6th form, possibly uni? a member of the male species I realy like but don't go out with and so am trying to persue
I do however work at my stables once a fornight on a Sunday, and I go riding up there every Sunday, so I get plenty of experience with horses.
It's great that you may get to buy Socrates, he looks gorgeous!
I hope you get to lease him next year, that would be ace
The equestrian team? do you mean big time competing or like a stable team or something? (sorry I'm not very good with competition, the only ones Ive been in are local Shire foal shows! )

No the Equestrian Team is for High School. I go to South Albany but unfortunately we don't have one so I'll have to join the other school's team. I was worried a little while wondering where I would keep him but now my boyfriend is renting a house with a barn in the back and letting me use it!

Yeah I know. He doesn't have the house yet but I'm really hoping that he gets it. Luckily it doesn't sound like I have to battle his friends for the barn. I just told them I wanted it and they were ok.

That's really good, especially for a first sketch! An ear suggestion: look at some pictures of horses/horse heads and see the shape of the ears. They are usually pretty delicate and in many pictures curve inwards at the tips. Another thing- about the eyes. Again, if you look at pictures it usually helps with shading. Your picture is REALLY good!

That's really very good for your first time drawing a horse! I didn't get near that for a long, long time, sadly. xD
The biggest suggestion I can give you is use references and get around horses. There is nothing like seeing how a horse is built up close and personal, in real life. My drawings improved ten fold once I got my own horse and was around them nearly every day.
Plus, practice, practice, practice. If you keep working at it and doing that well (especially once you get some reference photos or draw from life) than you'll be one of the best in no time! Best of luck, and I can't wait to see some more as time goes on.
