    Other people I've ridden with are up to $350 for 45 minutes.

    $50 is great!

    That's insane!!!

    I have never paid more than 25 dollars for a lesson, and I have ridden with a couple really good trainers. I think the average for my area is around 35.

    At my barn which is a mostly hunter barn....And we are on the bottom side for this are. (Competitively priced to what others have, but still slightly less)
    1 hr Group - $38
    1 hr Private - $60
    1/2 hr Private -$43
    1 hr Semi-Private -$49
    1/2 hr Semi-Private -$38

    Clinic last year with Chris Delia who rode in Atlanta Olympics for Team Canada was over $200 for about 2ish hours in a group. Hopefully riding in another clinic with him in Jan.

    Had a dressage/jumping lesson with Eventing coach MH Lessard and it was $56.50 for about 45 minutes to an hour. It was my first lesson with her, so she went over time limit to make sure she had a good idea of where my riding was at for the next lesson I took.

    Even crappy trainers (excuse my french) don't charge less than $40 around here. Really depends on where you live (and who you are training with - trainers with big name and medalists at the big shows definitely not cheap).

    I pay nothing :) My barn is owned by a housing developer and he allows them to instruct as many kids as they can handle for free. And my instructor is the best! No fancy titles just an awesome rider and instructer.

    With one instructor I pay 25 $ for a private lesson, usually 45 min to an hour, and my instructor comes out to my place. The other instructor I pay 40/45 min-hour and she also comes out to my place.

    With my awesome (flatwork and jumping) trainer... $35 for private and $35 for group- I usually go private since it's the same price...

    For my other awesome (only jumping) trainer $35 an hour for private and group. Some of you all pay a lot!!!!

    The USDF Bronze Medalist trainer I'll be taking lessons from charges $55 to come to my barn to give me a private lesson.

    The western pleasure trainer at my barn charges $25 for a private lesson.

    Holy Bajeebus....You people pay a lot for lessons!!!

    When I took lessons, I paid $25 for a hour to 1.5 hours (depending on my instuctors schedule) weekly. Around here for an actual lesson instructor, she was about as expensive as they get.

    $50 for half hour private or $45 for hour group.
