This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami horse.


The origami horse is based on the bird-base. One distinctive feature is that you will be using scissors to make two cuts. Also you will apply both inside reverse-fold and outside reverse-folds.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami horse.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami horse. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is 20cm x 20cm square one. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
