I agree about delete the polite if they aren't listening. If there is a roundpen and someone is riding in the arena you should definitely use the roundpen to lunge regardeless fo the age of the horse, but with a green hrose it is much more important.

IMO if I saw someone (esp. pregnant) being led with their child in the arena I would wait unless I was on a very calm horse. I don't like to mess up other people's ride if my horse is being stupid. I'll just give it a few minutes and let them get done. I have never had to ask permissoin, but we were all expected to be aware of what was going on in the arena. If there was a lesson, someone really trying to work their horse alone, etc. we would ride out in the grass, use the roundpen, or just wait for a little while.

I really think that you would be in teh right to bring this up to your BO.

I thought it was a pretty standard courtesy and rule. It is called Arena Etiquette.
You is also courtesy to announce your work intention and when you intend to leave if there are others in the arena.
I do kind of see a purpose in this....for example, my boy Ice is pretty unruly, and if there are other horses in the ring he decided he wants to follow them instead of listen to me. Well today I had been out there for a good twenty minutes, and one of the other boarders with a horse thats a little on edge decided she wanted to come and ride. If she would have asked me, I probably would have said "wait ten minutes and I can clear out" but she just walks on in and mounts up. Not a huge problem, but it does present an issue as far as me interacting with my horse. On top of that the other horse was prancy and high-energy, which put Ice in a frisky mood.

The non-nonchalant attitude of this statement makes me wonder.....If you're going to work your horse, even in something new, you should have enough control over the horse to keep it in line, even while its throwing a fit. A horse that can get away from its owner either needs a new owner or needs more training.
