    do jumping lessons cost more at your barn?

    Hi thanks for reading! Im new to the forum and I appreciate you help! I was just wondering if jumping lessons cost more at your barn? I ride at your average lesson/boarding stable, but since I was recently told I could progress into jumping lessons (AH!!! :) :) :) sorry I just had to share my excitement! I have been waiting for this my entire life!) I realized at my barn they cost more.

    Unfortunately the barn I ride at would probably not be my #1 choice, though I do like it! But I had to choose this barn because it has bus service and I can't always get a drive to my lessons because of my dad's work schedule. When I found out the jumping lessons I was so excited for would cost more I asked around and couldn't find another barn that charged more for jumping lessons!

    This barn is already very expensive and there is no way we can afford these higher prices! I'm not complaining! I will never let myself take the riding I can get for granted! But I was just wondering if there is a price difference between flat and jumping lessons at your barn! Thank you! :)

    If you can't afford them, then just get perfect in your flat work. Should you pursue: Hunter, Jumper, or 3-day, you will NEED a solid Dressage foundation, and this begins with precise flatwork.

    Thank you I definitely agree with this! I understand flatwork is the foundation for everything else! And always want to keep improving it! But have you ever seen jumping lessons that cost more? Not a private trainer or at a showy barn or anything just your average lesson barn! Thanks again!

    The post two places I have ridden at did not charge extra.

    I'm now at a backyard barn and my instructor comes to me. My lessons are only 30 minutes (though she is there about an hour) but once I progress to riding 45 minutes she still won't change the price.

    Not around my area.

    No matter what barn you go to, lessons will all cost the same. Although, there is no guarantee that the trainer will do a good job teaching you.
