    Is this okay?

    Is it okay to get down on your knees and let a horse sniff you and ruffle up your hair and just be curious and check you out?

    I wouldn't do it. Being on your knees makes you way too slow to move if you need to & puts all your body parts within a strike zone. Plus I don't want horse slobber in my hair.

    It depends on the horse I think. If they're at all a nervous type, definitely no. I'd never do it with a horse I don't know, personally.

    I was asking for the sake of someone else.

    With my horse, I'm totally fine with it. I sit out in her pasture and let her walk around me and all that, and I've yet to be stepped on-- and it's my own fault if it ever occurs. I wouldn't recommend doing this with a young/nervous/unfamiliar horse, though any horse can spook and every horse owns feet to step on you with. :)

    What was the point of starting another thread when the first one got locked? Are you just itching for another argument?
