Kissing someone else's horse?

What are the rules in terms of kissing a horse that isn't yours? There is a girl at the barn where I ride who has a horse. She has been kind enough to let me ride her mare. Sometimes her (the horses...though the girl's to) adorableness is irresistible and I want to kiss her... but I feel awkward since she's not my horse.

Do you remember a recent thread about someone who got bit kissing a horse? And it was her own. Some horses do not like it. I would refrain.

I know the horse is a good kisser (did I really just say that?) because her owner frequently kisses her.

Horses would prefer a pat or treat to a strange predator grabbing its face. I kiss my horses, but at best I know they're only tolerating it because they're humoring the crazy old lady who feeds them.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

It's not like the horse is her boyfriend.

Haha. Yeah I know but a lot of people have very deep connections with their buddies. I'm just wondering if it's exclusive or if other people get to join in?

The first day my trainer met my mare, she hugged and kissed all over her our entire lesson. She didn't ask beforehand and I wasn't offended! :) I'd say if she's open to letting you ride her horse that she would hope that you show some compassion for the mare. Whether in the form of a pat, kiss, or treat is on you.

I don't see the issue with it. I kiss the other horses at my barn, though I am well aware that some horses just aren't into it

A farrier we had gave me the funniest look when I kissed one of our horses.

Although I am a guy, I am very loving to our animals. Well, at least the dogs and horses and not to the cats or chickens! They are not just pets or livestock. They are part of the family.

As for other people's horses, I don't see an issue besides the horses not liking it. A horse may see your action as a threat to them and retaliate like mentioned already.

EXACTLY! They are part of the family (not mine since I don't have a horse... but still).

Sometimes she's just too adorable it's hard not to give her a smooch.
