Re: going horse riding
My personal view is that the teacher is not justified. If a correct form is used, even if the teacher happens not to have taught it, it is still correct.

My serious interest in ways of expressing the future was sparked by one sentence, George (fly) to New York next week, in an exercise in which the learner was asked to use the 'correct' form of the future. I forget now which one of the at least five possible ways of expressing the future possible in that sentence was given in the key, but I remember that there was only one. It is no wonder that learners are frequently confused, when they are so often misled.
