For me, it completely depends on the individual rider and which horse.
Jesse and Nester, I am comfortable putting anyone on either one of them. They are both virtually bombproof and neither have any super training that could be ruined by an inexperienced hand. They are both really broke but don't really know much other than how to plod around.
Dobe, I am okay with lower level riders getting on him so long as I am there with them. They do need to be able to ride effectively, even if they don't really ride well. So long as they are soft with their hands and legs, Dobe is content to pack them anywhere they want to go.
Pokey, I would be okay with an intermediate rider on him. He isn't untrustworthy but he isn't exactly bombproof either.
Most of my others wouldn't be suitable for anyone outside my family to ride.
Denny, I wouldn't put anyone on him even if he was still being ridden. I don't even like letting my family ride him because they don't understand his quirks. He and I get along great because I know how to ask him for things but if someone were to get on him and try to 'cowboy' him into anything, he'd kill them.
