Horses are really hard to draw so if you can't draw one freehand the way you want it, try tracing one from a book using tracing paper.

Cut out the horse shape, then use your tracing paper template to cut out a horse shape from the brown felt.

Cut several lengths of raffia and snip each piece into several strands. Sellotape these on to the reverse side of your horse to make a mane and tail.
