If you feed a horse treats, its likely to come back to you.
Also, are your neighbours horse people? They may not know how to use a whip effectively, or what to do if the horses kick out.
Personally I would go with them the first couple of times, and hopefully that would be all your horses would need to learn, and if not, as suggested above, leave a whip by the gate so they have it handy.
