I have let a begginer ride my pony but that was just a short ride so she could practice before she got her loan (she had riddden before and had her own pony but had taken a break) I was suprised at how well behaved he was with a begginner as she was unbalenced he wasn't sure what to do but was constantly trying to rebalence her ^^ and I was very suprised as with me he's a little speed demon NOTE: I put her on the lunge first to make sure he wouldn't scare her and she's also a very confident rider just not very experienced. But with her he did what she asked and never went faster than a slow comfortable canter, when I got on him at the end he immediatley took off with me round the field at a gallop!! (although I did have control he was just a little excited so I let him go and have his fun) :) haha funny how they change with rider experience :P oh and occasionally with people up my yard on a hack we'll swap horses on the way back or something ^^ although I'm dreading having to put my baby on loan when I go to university... :(
