With Origami Sculptures now out of print, diagrams for John Montroll's Classic Horse is now found in his recent book, "Horses in Origami", which came out last year (I think as early as last summer), just in time for 2014- the Year of the Horse. There are 27 wonderful, diagrammed models by Mr. Montroll and other designers, from high intermediate to simple.
I haven't made time yet to fold the other models presented in "Horses in Origami"; but I've long wanted to know how to fold some of these, like Hatori KOSHIRO's Ponytail Pony.

|I obtain nostrils by denting the center and pinching the sides together|
The model lends itself well to personal touches of artistic self-expression. The model itself starts out with Montroll's "dog base", and a wide array of animal forms can be had from there.
The hooves are obtained by opening up the layers and spreading them out.
|By spread-squashing this section of the double sink (just the triangular part shown), the inside layer of the tail section will now lay in the center.|
There are a couple of other minor touches I didn't think of showing until just now (like rounding out the belly).
FYI: For those using single sided paper and who don't like the color on the inside hind legs, there are a couple of ways you can get a color-change to keep the horse all one color.
