    At the barn where my horse is at, we focus mainly in dressage. Lessons are $40 for a half an hour private lesson.
    I think it was about $30-35 for an hour long private lessons when I took western lessons from someone else.
    I find that horse-related prices are going up here. =P Thankfully I work at the barn in exchange for my lessons.

    I pay $65 for 45min with a pro dressage trainer/competitor that lives out of my area but comes to town once a month - on my horse.

    The going rate in my area is around $45 for local trainers on your horse, usually like $10 more on their horse - and if you haul-in add another $10.

    2 western lessons a month=$110 on a school horse.
    2 dressage lessons a month=$120 to $200 on a school horse.
    The dressage price varys because occasionally I take it with an exceptional rider who is competing GP.
    So per month its anywhere from $230 to $310. But around here that is nothing. My friend pays $500 for 2 lessons a month.

    I pay $75/45 minutes for in barn lessons with my coach on my horse.
    In clinics at home that goes up to $150/45 minutes.
    Other clinicians I ride with/have ridden with have been between $125-$200/45 minutes.
    The most expensive clinic/symposium I've been in lately was Robert Dover, and that was $350/45 minutes.

    But you get what you pay for! A GP rider in contention for WEG is not going to charge $25 for a lesson!

    My trainer's rate just increased $5 to $30/45 minutes. Unfortunately she is moving out of state, so I had to look for another trainer. I have my first lesson with her next weekend, also $30/45 minutes. I ride my own horse.
    The one thing they have in common, they are both in their early 20s.
    My current trainer shows GP and I'm not sure about my (hopefully) new trainer, but she came highly recommended by another Arab owner at my barn.

    It really depends how good the trainer is. I took lessons at 40/hour from a lady who competed at PSG. Most lessons I think can vary anywhere from 30 and go upwards. They also have some packages.
