Have you ever seen a child’s best friend is a horse? The footage shows a little and sweet girl that is walking in the snow with her horse named Cinnamon. We grow up hearing that dogs are a man’s best friend, but horses have some special powers when it comes to hanging out with humans. They just walk around and play together and it’s quite possible the cutest thing you’ll see all day or even week.
Look at them go — both the little girl and the horse seem to be having the time of their lives walking in the snow. This isn’t the first time a girl and her horse become besties. Although there isn’t a lot of details about the girl and her horses’ friendship, there are tons of videos out there about the bond between other toddlers and baby horses.
Also, kids are in love with little ponies and parents have no stress as while playing or showing affection the animal will not hurt the kids. They are harmless and in love with them. Ponies are generally considered intelligent and friendly. They are sometimes also described as stubborn or cunning.
“If your child likes animals and you’re concerned about that child’s problem solving, goal-setting, or decision-making skills, then definitely get him or her involved with horses,” says Ann Swinker, Ph.D., a professor in Animal Science at Penn State University and one of the study’s co-authors.
An earlier study, conducted by the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, found that 4-H horse shows were much more than just an enjoyable activity for children.
“Clearly,” says Kathy Anderson, Ph.D., the study’s author, “participating in these shows enhances important skills, including goal-setting, self-reliance, and follow-through.”
Handling, riding, and caring for a horse or pony can develop a host of positive traits in a child, including responsibility, accountability, patience, level-headedness, empathy, kindness, and self-discipline.
