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.
