Depends on a lot of things:
(1) Competence of the instructor and the level of his/her committment to "protect your horse" from mis-use by the kids
(2) Competence and nature of the kids involved
(3) The nature of your horse
(4) How comfortable/uncomfortable you are with someone other than you riding your horse. Every time ANYBODY rides your horse, there is "training" going on. It can be good training or bad training, but training is happening.
The list of folks who would be permitted to ride my horse is EXTREMELY small. Life's to short... I don't need that kind of stress when I can prevent it. I am my horse's advicate/protector and I will not willingly compromise my ability to fulfill that role.
But, that's just me.... Posted via Mobile Device
