There is a very good reason for the saying "green on green makes black and blue".
If a green rider has an experienced, well trained horse, they can learn how to ride and feel how maneuvers should be done. A good instructor is well worth the money. Like someone else said, you don't teach yourself to fly a plane or drive a car. Horses are large animals that are capable of causing serious injury.
If a rider doesn't have the knowledge or confidence to train a horse properly, you end up with a hard to fix and possibly dangerous horse and a frustrated owner.
I want to see more people involved with horses, I don't want to see them hurt and/or frustrated enough that they quit.
