Ok pointers. Lighting is far to bright for bg there would be much deeper shadows cast from trees etc. The lighting on horse hits too bright as well mane would not be as bright as tail as tail is closer to light source. There should be much more defined light cast on horses back/rear the horse also lacks a shadow cast on ground. If you need any help feel free to pm me and I can give you some lessons.

I'm definitely not a graphics pro - so I think Kaly gave you really solid feedback there! 

I just wanted to add in - don't forget to add your credits of where you got the images! (:

The snow texture (I'm assuming that's what the spots are but if I'm wrong correct me) feel a little cartoony because they're so big--some more realistic stock will help with that. Mess around with blending options, too (like overlay, screen, multiply, etc. They each do different things to layers in an image and helps a lot with accomplishing a look you're after.

Here's a good source for some quick tips on blending! 

This is a great start! :)

Beautiful idea!
My only thought would be to work on the tail making it look less blurred?
