How much do you pay for riding lessons?

I'm thinking about taking lessons with trainers that have won major shows for $50, 30 minutes. How much do you guys pay?

For an "in barn" lesson with my coach I pay $85 for 45 minutes. In a clinic it's about $175 for 45 minutes.
Another clinician I bring in is about $135 for 45 minutes.
Other people I've ridden with are up to $350 for 45 minutes.

$50 is great!

I currently pay 12 for 30 mins with the resident instructor on the yard, she is teaching me and Reeco to longrein and is very good. I have in the past paid 85 for a 30 min lesson on a GP dressage horse at a top yard with a top instructor and thought that it was worth every penny.

When I start taking lessons, private lessons are 35$ an hour. Not bad in my eyes.
