I've never heard of that before either but if I was in your situation I would tell them to kiss my hind end this is what I believe if you have the ability to ride a horse safely then you should do so I've never heard of a riding club they have no right to kick you out if you are able to ride a horse on your own but on the other hand if there is a trainer if they feel you can't ride they have the right to think so because they've been around horses long enough to know what to do if they didn't they would'nt have a license to teach because in order to be an instructor you have to have expert riding experience plus they have to have a license.if there isn't a trainer I would'nt worry about it.If they give you hassle leave them.I'm just a different person if they kicked me out over something stupid I'd say kiss my hind end and leave that's what I would do

I can understand where the trainer is coming from. Sometimes people think they are ready long before any doctor would think they are. The instructor pays a lot on their insurance (hopefully your instructor is insured). A student getting back in the saddle before they are safe is a real concern for any instructor. She is accepting some liability having you in lessons. However, If you are riding your horse outside of any lesson, no one can tell you what to do, IMO. YOU are accepting all the risk.

So apparently noone except for the young riding instructor knew about all this disability stuff. I respect the older instructorss wishes and got her the certificate and am finally allowed to ride again and she is very kind and is helping me progress very good and she also is making sure that i dont use all my energy up at the start of the lesson and lengthen it out and if i dont feel comfortable doing something, like trotting poles or trotting or whatever the lesson kids are doing, then I dont have to.
Though the younger instructor is very much different...she is very unhappy about me riding again, will only let me ride one horse(though atm im pretty happy on him :) though he did bite me badly on the hip). She isnt really an instructor as she doesnt have her certificate yet, is still learning but shes from victoria and is very 'iffy' she wanted to sell our little 11hh pony diamond because he was 'unsafe' my friend got on him and proved he was safe and 2 weeks later he now has had tonnes of little beginners on him. She also bought a ex race horse OTT about a year for 8000 and seems to think hes going to have a massive dressage career but a girl at the club whos ridden him thinks he would be more suited for jumping as he doesnt seem to really have a flowy movement or something, but I dont know as I havent seen her do dressage on him.
Another friend said apparently the girl has no idea what she's doing and that shes only just started riding.
:S so i have honestly no idea about the young 'instructor', but I fully respect the older instructor. I am saving up to ask the older instructor if she will come out to my horses paddock and do some work with us because i think we could benefit very well. Shes honestly the best instructor i've ever had.
But the other one scares me and I dont really trust her :/

Ponies and horses are the same except ponies are smaller than horses the young instructor I wouldn't listen to her I would listen to someone that know what they are doing and has expert knowledge of these noble creatures.Glad you can ride again good luck on your horse journey
