If you allow her to do and she or her horse is injured due to any reasonably obvious issue or condition on your property--one which you were in fact aware of, or would logically be assumed to know of--which you failed to correct, you could be liable for the injury(ies). This would include if there were holes or irregularities in the ground of the ring, a broken or splintery rail or fence which gouges someone, etc. So there is potential liability when you allow others to use your property when you are absent.
