Drawing a horse head is easy if you follow the step-by-step instructions. There are only few difficult steps so this drawing tutorial is suitable for kids and people at all skill levels.
Sketch lightly and carefully in the beginning. We will start by drawing simple circles to outline the shape of the horse’s head. Those circles will be erased later.

You don't need any special pens or tools. A regular pencil, eraser, and paper are all you need. If you want, you can also color the drawing with colored pencils or pens.
