A Collection of Horse Sketches

Like I mentioned here, I love drawing horses. When I was young, I was that type of little girl who if you would asked what her favorite animal is, she would promptly reply “a horse!”, and would dream of owning a horse, and riding a horse across rolling hills into the sunset, and whatever scrap of paper was on hand, the first thing you would find her doodle would be a horse.

Curiously enough, I hardly owned any accessories, clothes, or toys with horse prints, my bedroom was not decorated with horses, and I think I only ever rode a pony once when I was young.

But I still do enjoy drawing horses and I strive to get better at it. This is a collection of a few of my horse sketches throughout the years. Some of the drawings are from five years ago, others are more recent, while some are drawings from my preteen-ish years. But now that I stop to think of it, I realize none are from the last 3 years! Wow, I haven’t been drawing horses in awhile!

You may recognize some horses from cartoons. The movie “Spirit Stallion of the Cimmaron” was a little addictive for me when it came out (though I wouldn’t endorse it now because of the New Age-y and anti-white/western expansion messages it has). I loved the way the horses were illustrated in the movie.

There are a few unfinished sketches sprinkled among the rest. I thought I would share them anyway because they have their own charm. Cowgirls and cowboys are naturally characters present in my horse drawings, yes, Toy Story too! I also have a sketch of a little donkey with a cart that I copied from a historical book.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through my sketches. Let me know which one was your favorite!

  1. These are nice, Rebekah!!! I can see some children’s illustrated books with this quality of drawing. 🙂 May the Lord direct you in this talent!!

  2. Hi Rebekah! 🙂

    These are awesome! I liked the last drawing, of the Morgan, best. Definitely you’re better at drawing horses than I am… but I can compare with the “little-girl-horse-obsession” thing, too! They’re still some of my favourite animals, and I still plan to have a horse someday (in an imaginary land far far away, at least), although recently wolves have taken the place of horses as my favourite animal ever. 😉

    God bless!

    1. Thank you rivasysabella, you’re very kind! I have since given up on actually having a horse, but I wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to ride one 🙂
