Horses and ponies are one of the most popular animals to color and are sure to entertain kids of all ages. Whether they are going through a pony phase or simply love horses, coloring pictures of these beautiful creatures can help them relax and develop fine motor skills while having fun.
There are many types of horse coloring pages to choose from, some more intricate than others. While these may be more suitable for teens and adults, younger children will enjoy a simpler picture that is easy to color in. This page has a cute little horse that is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers to work on. It also has a pretty background that can be colored in to make a great wall hanging once the horse is finished.
The next page has a more detailed image of a horse. It has a lot of flowers and even more details in the mane. This might be more suited for older kids as it seems that it could take quite some time to color all of the intricate details.
Some of the more intricate coloring pages are a bit too complex for younger children, but not all adults want simple designs either. For this reason, there is a section for kids and teens that has pictures that are a bit more in between. They still have a lot of detail but are not so complicated that they will take forever to color.
One of the most impressive things about a horse is how they can run so quickly and gracefully. This page shows a horse running and splashing through the water. It is such a freeing feeling for these beautiful creatures to be able to run free.
Aside from running and galloping, horses also like to graze. This is a good picture to show the more peaceful side of a horse.
Horses are often used by cowboys to ride in the wild or for ranching. This picture shows a cowboy attempting to lasso (a rope around the neck that can be tightened to restrain) a horse while training it. While this might be dangerous for the horse, it can be a great way to get exercise and to teach the animal how to be calm. Help this cowboy to be successful by encouraging him with some comforting colors.
Another fun activity with horses is showing them in a race or riding competition. This picture is a perfect example of this. There is a competition between two horses and you can see the excitement that this causes for these beautiful animals.
Besides horse coloring pages there are also other animal-themed activities that can be done with the children in your life. You might want to try some of these horse and pony crafts for the next rainy day or for a fun activity at your child’s birthday party. The best part is that these craft ideas can be made with items you probably already have at home.
