If I know the rider can handle the horse, then yes. If I really don't trust their judgement or abilities, no. For example, I'll let anyone ride my 22yr old. My 6yr old OTTB was mentally abused and after being trained perfectly, fell into the hands of someone who couldn't ride to save her life and kicked her when she did something wrong. So I'm bringing her home from the trainer's Tuesday, and no one other than myself will be riding her for a long time because she's still very sensitive to any leg pressure. You literally just stick your belly button out and she'll advance in gait, and stick it back to stop. She's that sensitive, and there's not many people that know her well enough that I'd trust her with for a while.
