I can understand your concern but I would not have thought there is much to worry about unless there is evidence of effluent on the surface at any time (this does happen in some parts of the world in wet conditions), in which case I would want to keep the horses well away for your own protection as much as for the horses. Also consider the situation in wet weather, does the ground become soft in that area, such that it is not ideal for the horses feet and presenting the possibility of the horses feet carrying contamination that could be a health hazard to you.
