Valeroso One, charcoal equine drawing by Carol Engles

10 x 14 charcoal on paper. This is a drawing of my Peruvian stallion,  Valeroso. Even though he is a gaited horse, he loves to gallop. He also likes to arch his neck and then take off.  He's a joy to be around and believe it or not, under saddle he is very calm and responsive. He is my most relaxing horse to ride. I also use images of Valeroso as blueprints for some of my other equine art. I change a few dimensions and details to depict different breeds.
