I grew up with horses and currently own a purebred, black Arabian mare named Shazrey Moonbeam. We call her Shazzy for short because she's so jazzy. Portraits include full head and neck. Here are a number of drawings I've done of horses at the Morningview Riding Center where I board my horse.
If you have a special halter or bridle, I encourage you to use it in the photo you send. I will pay careful attention to your special tack. From experience, side photographs turn out better than head-on portraits for horses. Full figure portraits include the entire horse and some orienting aspects of the background.
Group portraits can mean many interesting things with horses. It could be two horses, a horse and rider, a mother and foal, or an owner just horsing around with their horse.
