I lease my horses out. I even have a could of girls who pay per ride. But they have no problem with me watching, abd giving instruction when needed. The first ride they took, was a lesson. So that I could watch how they were with my horses, teach them how to handle my horses, and so they could get reacquainted with riding in a safe, controlled environment. Now that they've ridden with me a few times, I keep an eye on them, but I don't stay out there watching and nit picking. If I notice the are having difficulty, I go out and do some teaching, abd they carry on.
My point is, even if you found someone willing to rent you their horse, they are going to keep an eye on you. They are going to give you some instruction. If you go up to someone with the "I know everything" attitude, your going to get booted. If you go, willing to learn and obey the owners wishes for THEIR horse, you'll have better luck.
