I don't let many other people ride Winnie. One of my friends who is 10x a better rider than me can get on her, and my mother has the option to get on her (but for some reason believes she's a fire breathing dragon...really she's not bad just quick).
An "instructor" got on her and needless to say I'm not taking lessons from that lady again. She could barley get Winnie to trot (haha winnie kept gaiting, come on when that horse was a lesson horse the beginner that (should not have been riding her because she more an intermediate horse) got on her could get her to trot!) , and when she did Winnie was bracing her and racing (not to mention I don't really think this lady was a very good rider). She was making me ride her with alot of contact when we had done been riding on a loose rein and some light contact for god only knows how long and I've spent the last few weeks cleaning up the mess. Now were almost back to where we were before the month of disaster....So usually no, unless I know their riding ability or there better than me/family, they don't TOUCH my horse. End of story.
