Yes. Most provide lessons with trainers. You have to research them though, some don't do lessons.
Usually (in a lot of cases) they do the same discipline. Some barns do a mix of both (like western & english) but most do not.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

They normally do but the barn im boarding at right now doesn't, you can have your own trainer come to the barn and it won't matter! But I think a lot of barns have a mixture of diciplines, you'll just have to do some research!

my current barn does not have a trainer there, but you are more than welcome to bring in any trainer of your choice.

I personally do not like boarding facilities that require to you take lessons if you board. I feel that should be up to the horse's owner, not the barn owner.

I don't think it is a bad idea for the BO to know if you can ride or not... I've looked at a few places that require like 3 riding lessons.

I board at a private home so no we don't have any trainers... I know she wouldnt care if I brought anyone in though, as long as they sign a waiver for getting hurt, etc. I wouldnt mind boarding somewhere that did have a trainer but I can't afford that right now... maybe someday

Never looked at it from that point of view.
I can see the reasoning behind that, though I still think it shouldn't be mandatory. Not everyone can afford to take lessons on top of board.

I would say that around here, only some of the boarding facilities are also training facilities.

The training facility I'm at has a trainer (also the owner) but all she trains and teaches is Hunter/Jumpers. It's her facility and she has so many clients and horses I highly doubt she would consider taking on any trainers.
Most facilities, most riding ones, will have at least one trainer. If a trainer doesn't have the money to own, maintain and keep their own stable they will board and train at a specific stable, sometimes even bounce around to different facilities.

There's a trainer at my barn who I started lessons with. He helps me with my horse sometimes nowadays, but he doesn't give lessons to anyone else anymore.
The barn I started out at didn't have a main trainer, but it had someone who gave lessons.
Around here, it's pretty common for boarding stables to have one trainer, if not several.
