Very good point to bring up.
What if your horse gets hurt during a lesson? Who will pay for that? You don't have a written contract on it.
What if the rider gets hurt during a lesson? They may try to sue you because it was your horse. Again, you don't have a contract to protect yourself.
It is YOUR horse and it is YOUR decision that the barn not use YOUR horse.
It is perfectly reasonable (not snotty) for you to say to them that they cannot use your horse for lessons.
