    I pay 18 euro for an hour group lesson on my own horse.

    If it's on the school horses it's 23 euro.

    My horse is in Durham. WWWAAAYY cheaper than where you are. The lesson is with my own horse. I didn't realize the rate was different if you're on your own horse.

    Well, most of the places I've ridden offered a discount if you used your own horse, so I thought that might account for some of the price difference. But you're quite a ways from me so I'm sure that helps the price. Everything around Fairfield County is so expensive

    I pay $55 AUD for an hour's lesson on a school horse. I think its $45 if you have your own. My lessons are western/hunter under saddle kinda stuff.
    My 2 instructors are quite nice. I get to ride in their saddles, use their show saddles and gear at shows if I show their horses. My lessons are meant to go for one hour but they go for longer. I'll end up having an hour and a half riding lesson, then she'll get all the other girls to tack up, we'll have a group lesson, then a ground work lesson.
    I'm part of my barn's show team, so I travel with them to shows and show their horses.
    I also tend to get longer lessons because I work for riding time. EG, mucking out stalls, lunging horses, catching horses, being a trail leader.

    I haven't paid for lessons in over a year bu 50-60 dollars seems to be the going rate around here for a 45 min to an hour lesson.

    Hey 7ponies,
    I am with you! I have not had lessons in years and when I started to inquire about them I was a bit taken aback at the prices.
    But...then again everything these days is a bit more.

    At the barn I board at there are two trainers in dressage and then two for hunters.
    The dressage trainer for novice and beginers charges $40 for 1/2 hour on a lesson horse or your horse. Private lesson
    I think it is the same if you use your own horse but then again I did not specify when I first asked.
    Then the other more experienced dressage trainer charges $75 for a 45-60 min private lesson and I think most of her clients have their own horses.
    It is $50 for a shorter lesson
    The same trainer is giving me and my horse some lessons on the ground to get him strengthened etc. for $50 now that we got over the initial first lesson which was about an hour.

    Where I take my riding lessons it is $65 an hour for a private and $50 for a group lesson.
    This instructor's main focus is jumping, but she is experienced up to 4th level dressage.

    Although $50-60 is the typical going rate for a private lesson around this area, I only pay $35 and it usually lasts for around 1-1/2 hours. They also offer semi-private for $30 and small group for $25. Using their lesson horses. I am very happy with her progress there so far, the trainer moves her right along....

    My barn is really expensive, but I LOVE it! 50$ for an hour long group lesson, on a school horse. I know, it's unreasonable.. : P But I <33 it there! :)

    $45 for group lesson that go for 45 min (or supposed to(they can tend to run over time on somedays))
    Can bring you're own or get on the Schools' horses'
    Private I wouldn't know

    My old one was $20 private or group, and you could go to her barn and use her horses or she'd come to your house and teach you on yours.
    My new one is usually $35 for private on yours or a school horse, but if your horse is there for training she gives free lessons. She also gives discounts if you're in 4-H as do many other instructors around here.
