Leasing a new horse and having trouble with the owner

I started leasing a new horse (I have leased a couple of horses before so I'm familiar with the procedures). The owner wanted the horse to be kept on the farm which is completely fine for me because she has a ring to ride in. I wanted to have a lesson with an instructor I have been going to for a while and I wanted her to come see me ride this new horse and see how well we worked together. Well my instructor came and gave me a lesson, there was no one at the barn at the time so no one was using the ring at the time so no one was distributed, so I thought everything was okay. Well I told the Horse/Barn owner that I had a lesson on the horse with my instructor and she said I wasn't allowed to. There wasn't anything in the contract that said I couldn't and she wouldn't let me do an off the farm lease so the instructor had to come to that barn. Does she have a right to be mad at more or should I stop leasing this horse and lease another one that I have been looking at that offers an off the farm?

What does the contract (both lease and board) say about lesson instructors coming into the barn? If there's no clause I would point this out. I would tell her that because it says no than you see no problem and apologize and say you still value her opinion.

At least that way if they kick you off the contract you won't have to keep paying. Personally it would depend on how much I liked the horse.

Most instructors do not carry insurance and it is a liability for the owner of the property. See if instructor has insurance, if so ask the barn owner if that was the issue.
