Sometimes, an unusual pair makes best friends. Have you ever imagined a toddler could become friends with a horse? Well, Tiny Emma proved it’s possible. The little girl loves her horse, Cinnamon, so much and her love is definitely returned by the sweet horse. You’ll see in this video.
Emma’s dad Justin trains horses for a living. He even owns his own ranch. So it’s only natural that is daughter should develop an affinity for equestrians.
He owns the Justin Dunn Horsemanship, which is an organization that aims to build meaningful relationships between people and horses.
It might make some viewers nervous to see such a tiny girl leading a giant animal like Cinnamon. But the horse is as calm as a still pond when Emma is around. She even stops and waits for Emma to get a hold on the reins when she gets them wrapped around her leg. Cinnamon is almost more patient than Emma’s dad is!
Even though it’s obviously frigid outside and the horse is ten times her size, the toddler is fearless. She takes tiny steps and moves Cinnamon along at her own pace. The horse happily plays along.
The cutest part of the video is when Emma’s dad asks her questions about Cinnamon. He asks if that is her horse and she responds with enthusiasm, “Yeah!” She can’t quite pronounce Cinnamon’s name, so it comes out more like “Cimmon.” It’s adorable.
