How should I handle this?
So, I have these three friends from my school that want to ride my horse. I don't mind but what should I do? How do I introduce them to horses? How much riding should they do? I have never taught anyone that hasn't been around horses before, just did "mini-clinics" for pony club. My horse is a pretty calm mare. What do ya'll think I should do? I want them to come out to the barn but does anyone have tips for introduceing them to horses? What do I say if they want to ride the pretty appy stallion galloping around in his pen?
