Origami Horse Instructions and Diagram

Origami horseFollow the steps below to make this handsome Origami horse.
Difficulty: Easy-Medium

I belive this origami horse is one of the best looking ones out there that is also pretty easy to fold. However, it does have more steps than your average easy origami, and there are a couple of inside reverse folds. If you don't know what an inside reverse fold is, don't worry. It's easy and the step by step instructions and pictures will show you.

One other thing I want to mention about this origami horse is that it does require scissors. Purists will say this isn't exactly origami then, but the average person doesn't really care. The cuts allow this horse to be one of the "handsomest" origamis out there without being too complex to fold.

Step 1 Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper, but if you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.
Step 2 Step 2: Fold the paper in half from top corner to bottom corner.
Step 3 Step 3: Fold in half again from left corner to right corner.
Step 4Step 4-2Step 4-3 Step 4: Squash fold the upper layer. To do this, open the upper layer and fold down while creasing the sides.
Step 5 Step 5: Turn over.
Step 6Step 6-2Step 6-3 Step 6: Now squash fold the other flap. To do this, make the left flap stand vertically, then open up and squash down.
Step 7 Step 7: Fold the left and right sides of the upper layer to the center.
Step 8 Step 8: Fold the top corner down.
