I personally would not want my horse to be ridden by someone else, but I am 
from working class, third generation American stock.  As far as I know my 
ancestors were city people and one Cornish miner.  I'd bet that you would have 
a hard time finding a previous horse owner in my family tree for a couple of 
hundred years.

I wouldn't object to someone else riding my horse, if I knew and
trusted the person and made the decision (which would include some
input on how the horse was to be ridden).  Kahlil had several other
people ride him during his career.

I would absolutely not allow a horse of mine to be an alternate to  a
pool of riders, where I would have no say as to who rode him, and no
input -- unless I knew well, and thoroughly trusted, every one of the
prospective riders.  Especially in such a high-pressure event.

Oh, I'm from a poor working-class background as well; no one else in
my extended family has ever owned a horse or had any interest in
owning a horse.
