Now fold corners A and B to the centerline to form a kite:
Then fold corners C and D to the centerline.
Then put your index finger in one of the pockets just created, and make a squash fold as shown in the next four (4) photos:
Repeat on the other side, then fold the piece in half along the long centerline:
Next crease along the dotted line, in preparation for an inside reverse fold to form the neck of the horse:
Now do another inside reverse fold to form the head of the horse, followed by one more to form the mouth:
Next we start on the legs. Fold corner E forwards as shown, and repeat on the backside:
Then do an outside reverse fold to form the back legs, as shown in the next five (5) photos:
Fold along the dotted line, then repeat on the backside, to form the front legs:
Fold along the dotted line, tucking the flap inside to finish forming the neck. Repeat on the backside:
An inside fold at the tip of the back legs forms the hooves. Use pen / pencil / markers to add eyes and a mane to the horse.
Now your origami horse is complete! Make sure to give the horse a cool name, like Secretariat.
