Being sprayed in the face is disrespectful and/or some horses just don't like it so owners don't?
I find most horses when initially introduced to a hose don't like being sprayed anywhere. Desensitize them to being sprayed (gently) in the face just like one would get them used to being hosed on any other part of their body and they learn to tolerate and even enjoy it.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
