Honestly? I think that being a great rider at 16 does not qualify you to teach an adult to ride. If you care about this lady's safety, and if you have pride in your own standards then you should say to her that you are NOT the best person to teach her, and that she should go to a qualified teacher instead.
Just because I can read and write doesn't mean that I am qualified to teach young children to do so - the same principle applies here, but it's a more urgent one because either the rider or the horse or both could get hurt.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
