Go for the lessons for sure. And there is never any harm in doing an appointment with the instructor and then a "unannounced" visit during lessons. This way you can see a lesson that perhaps the coach didnt want you to see ie beginners. Also, don't be afraid of having trial lessons. Everyone learns differently, so why pay someone who you can't understand and apply what they are telling you.
It was said already, but you might as well ride other horses for people for miles....on the horse and yourself. It might work out to mostly free lessons in the end as all you are giving up is your time.
