That is very odd, and I would never trust a seller that wouldn't allow someone to test-drive the horse, so to speak.
When you are selling, it is your responsability to pre-screen people through questions to make sure they would be suitable for your horse. If they do something you don't like around your horse, you have EVERY right to step in and ask them to stop or even leave.
If a person was being rough with my horse that's for sale, I would put an end to it immediately, say that I don't think it's a good match and move on.
As for what to do - if you are set on seeing this horse, explain your hubby's riding ability, and tell her that you won't buy a horse that he hasn't test-ridden, because you want to make sure it's a good match.
If she still refuses, walk away.
Bah, people like this drive me bonkers.
