    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.

    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.
