The wall is a protective barrier that shields the toddler from outside influences that he/she may not need to be around. Given the nature of teh horses pose, it is a very calm one and is used to being in this courtyard. (i say courtyard as their permeters are usually made of walls like this.) The Horse also seems protective of the child, a trusted steed (or pony i suppose) raised from birth to be in this childs care and jurisdiction.

For some reason Humpty Dumpty comes to mind, not just becaue of teh wall, but becasue of all the kings horses as well. This young child is of noble nature and will someday become king, at teh same time he rides a white horse like the figure of Death on card XIII.

Innocence, warmth, openness. All of these qualities are expressed in their fullest.
