Nope. Any good horse person knows that a horse is not a dog and can't be treated as one.

Kissing her all over her face does nothing to make her trust or love you. In fact, most horses don't like you hanging on their heads at all. After all, that's where their early warning equipment is located (ears, nose, eyes).

Stop anthropomorphizing the poor thing and treat her like the horse she is. She'll be much happier if the two legged predator stops mouthing her face.

I freely admit I kiss my horses but that's only AFTER I've earned their trust and respect, not before. Hanging on her head, gnawing (in her mind) on her face does nothing to make her want to cooperate with you, since you're showing typical predatory behavior.

You truly don't understand how a horse's mind works, do you?

I'll put it bluntly. If you don't get respect out of this horse, it's going to hurt you. Period.

Just you wait, one day you'll be using your kissy kissy come down so I can bridle you, method.. and your horse will snap her head back up and hit you in the process. Not being mean, just being a horse.

And lady, it hurts.

Before folks get too upset with the OP, remember, she asked for advice and was given it. What she does with it is totally up to her.
