If you mean will you get something transferred from your horses, then I've never heard of it. I hand feed a treat or two to some of my girls and get their slobber all over my hands. I've cleaned snot and took care of strangles without getting infected so I don't think you will get sick from giving your horse a hug or a peck on her nose.
As roro said, if the horse has something that is contagious, I would avoid kissing his nose but even then, transferring to human is rather rare if at all possible. You could, however, transfer something to a healthy horse.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
