Horses do enjoy the taste of salt, so this may be why he decided to lick you especially if you were as sweaty as the guy in that picture! Hope that helps.
Yes it would be, and you will end up covered in horse slobber too! Most horses are fairly docile creatures so it shouldn't be a problem to gently push them away. Wearing longer sleeved clothing my also help discourage them from licking you, enjoy your riding!
You're welcome. Thanks for the rating.
