Sorry to double post, it wouldn't let me edit. o_O
I let other [knowledgeable] people ride my horse. I like to see her under saddle, and I want to make sure she will respond to other people. If I ever had to sell her, which is very, very unlikely, it would be really hard to if she would only ride well and respond to me. It's silly to never let anyone on your horse, and it isn't in your horse's best interest. That doesn't mean throw any random person up there, it could be your instructor or trainer, someone who also knows your horse. But either way, a rideable horse should be just that, rideable. Just my thoughts. =]
