    You can't unless you get permanently banned.

    I came here to learn more about horses. Not to be laughed at when I asked a stupid question... Usually horse people are kinder and more understanding because when working with horse you have to be. I didn't know you had to be an "expert" to be on this forum. And I called you a know it all because you sat there and informed me on horses being livestock as if I didn't already know.

    You asked a very novice sounding question, sorry. Once again, we can all only reply based on the information you give us. Maybe you should've phrased it like "Someone I know thinks its safe and okay to kneel in front of her horse, can anyone provide me with some reasons why this isn't okay and is dangerous?"

    It's free advice, take it or leave it. But drop the 'tude.

    There have been a lot stupider questions asked and lots of advice given. Frankly I don't think this question was was all that stupid. Good, blunt, and honest advice was given and for some reason you took it as an attack. Many people don't like to sugar coat things around here, and rightfully so when your dealing with a 1,200 pound animal with a brain. It's all about how you take the advice, not the question itself.

    Personally I know its dangerous, but I have done it a few times with horses I know like the back of my hands. I always make sure I'm in position for a quick get away too.The other day with my mini donks and I was sitting on a low platform. The one time after not seeing my mare in 3 months. I sat on a tree stump and she came and stood over me then dropped her head down right into my lap. It was a VERY special moment for us.

    Blunt is what I wanted. Honesty is what I wanted. People trying to make me look stupid, when I'm just being honest, is not what I wanted. I appreciate the genuine answers. Thank you

    OP, believe me, we are happy that you are interested in learning more about horses. We are also a very safety-conscious forum and it is evident to me that everyone who has posted on this thread has done so out of concern for your safety. I think you may have mistaken that concern for condescension.

    As a previous poster commented, we can only go by the information you provide. Until you specified, no one knew if you were posting in your own interest, or that of someone else. It's a good idea to keep that sort of thing in mind when posting a thread.

    Personally, I would never get on my knees near a horse.
