I do let others ride my horse. As much as possible, I find it a great pleasure to be ablet to share my joy of horses. I also believe that it's important to keep bringing in newcomers to horses, because it keeps the sport/hobby alive. If the general populace never has the chance to firsthand experience horses, they will not be as supportive of issues that we find dear to our hearts, such as: Protecting wild horses, keeping equestrian trails open, preserving equestrian properties in areas threatened by urbanization, making laws that protect the wellbeing of horses such as laws agains abuse of horses. Many people don't see why horses are important anymore and it's up to us to help them to see that and stand with us on these issues.
