The children I'm not worried about, it's the heavier adult riders... :/
Angel, I'm positive that particular place (which has also very heavy lesson program, isn't it?
) definitely had something in mind when they got a horse in first place. And I'm also positive they'll be careful in who will be riding it. Most lessons barns around here the BO and instructors are VERY careful about who rides the horse and how much the horse can manage, as well as physical condition of the horse. Personally I wouldn't worry all that much.
