I'd start by looking at the reference photo, and picking out where the darkest points of the horse are, then shading those in, from there, gradually work out towards the highlighted areas and you'll have a much more three dimensional drawing ;)
Thanks! Yeah, I'm not too good at shading yet but I'll work at it :)
