I think the best thing to do would be to sit her down and let her know that Lily is still your horse, and while you have no problems being used correctly in the lesson program, there needs to be some sort of structure or schedule so you can also enjoy your own horse. I would also tell her that you do not feel comfortable with minors catching her in the pasture in case of potential injury and lawsuit. That usually makes them think twice, especially if they don't have proper insurance.

Which is why I would be on that like flies on poo. I personally LIKE my home, horses, vehicles, and in general, my life. I have no desire to give it to someone else who had an accident with my horse, especially one I had no control over, like lessons that may happen when I am not even around.

You are in a tough situation but this does sound like a train wreck waiting to happen
First off a private lesson is a private lesson - but that side of it is on the childs parents not yours
Its the safety aspects of it that would concern me most. My son and I are in now way novice riders and have owned our own horses forever but when we took a few lessons at a local riding school here to try and keep in shape through the winter we weren't allowed to do anything without supervision - we did tack up the horses and brushed them over after our ride but everything we did was watched and checked. We weren't allowed to mount without someone standing by the horse and I was told off for riding one handed!! These things seem petty but it was explained to us that it was all down to really strict health and safety rules imposed by the insurance cover
I wonder who would be held responsible if someone riding your pony did something silly that resulted in her (pony) getting injured or if your pony injured someone?

Thankfully they ARE insured out the wazoo here. Barn is insured to give lessons, instructors get their own insurance, & riding waivers are signed. I will be talking about my issues with my horse.
