In my oppinion, the beginner riders should get right of way in the ring, as they cannot cotrol a horse as well as an experianced rider can. But if the rider is not up to a level of experiance they should not be riding in a ring with other riders, as they could cause accidents. If you a riding a green horse, then you should book a private time to be in the ring with no other horses with this horse.
But to add to this, as someone(s) said above, the more experianced riders should not be sacrifising their ring space/time because of less advanced riders. Also they shouldn't have to douge a beginner rider every three seconds. So I think to stop this a cetain day(s) should be put in place so that only experianced riders can use the ring at a certain time. There is nothing wrong with being a beginner rider, as you still have plenty to learn. All riders can learn something.
To add to this, there should also be a day/time for just beginner riders, although several beginner riders trying to do different things could become a problem. So a trainer/instructor should be there to supervise, same goes for the advanced riders a trainer/instructor should be there.
