I have loved horses for as long as I can remember. There is something so majestic and inspiring in how they move and how they run. They look like pure beauty to me.
I’ve only had a chance to ride one a handful of times (and that’s if you count the pony rides at the county fair!), but I thought I’d create this FREE Breeds of Horses Guided Drawing Activity so that your kids can have fun learning about ten breeds of horses no matter how far from the real deal you might live.
Each of the ten breeds of horses in this guided drawing unit includes a short paragraph explaining a little about the breed and two guided drawing activities that allow kids to draw either half of a given picture or the entire picture. A short review (with answer key) wraps up the unit. In this unit, kids will learn about the:
- American Bashkir Curly horse
- American Paint horse
- Andalusian horse
- Arabian horse
- Gypsy Vanner horse
- Quarter horse
- Shetland pony
- Shire horse
- Thoroughbred horse
- Welsh pony
For example, do you know which breed of horse is known for its stamina and ability to run long distances through difficult areas? Do you know which breed is descended from the horses that knights in armor used to ride into battle? Do you know which breed was bred to work in the mines in Great Britain?
If you have a horse lover, you might want to be sure to check out these FREE writing prompts that are horse-themed. They are available in two levels.
