When I was still taking lessons, it cost $60, but I was lucky enough to be able to work off the cost. I just checked the barn's website, & the current rates are $70 for an hour long semi-private lesson, a 45minute private lesson costs $70 on your own horse or $80 on a school horse, & 1 1/4 hour group lessons are $500 for a package of 8. All of the trainers at that barn are certified, & the head trainer is an international 4* eventer.
I pay $28 for a hour private lesson with a awesome trainer that's been there done that on the h/j circuit here and the girls always kick butt at shows! The most I ever paid for a lesson was $40 and that was with an Eventing coach.
I generally pay around $45 for a 45min lesson with my local instructor, $37 for 60mins with my cousin, $160 for two 45min lessons with my protocol coach and an average of $300 for two 45min lessons with a guest coach. So we're forking out approximately $700 a month in lessons. The most I've paid is $500 for two 45min lessons (Brett Parbery, was SO worth it. He's so cool haha). A local pony club (I'm in a different club, but they like me so they invite me to lessons) gets my protocol coach out so she's cheaper and they get riders/judges like Tor Van Den Berg, Maria Schwennesen, Geraldine Van Mont Franseady and Ron Patterson for seminars at the start of the year so that's a lot cheaper too.
Hey I pay £30 an hour but it never lasts that long I usually start at ten in the morning and I catch my horse, tie him and groom him then tack him up and away we go it is very rare that I am off the horse and unsaddled before 12 noon which never costs me a penny more. I take lessons from an instructer who spends 3 months in texas every summer and is willing to show you anything you ask from issues with picking up feet to confidence issues I choose what we do at the beginning of every lesson so I never get bored. She never lunges and if i'm feeling abit lacking in confidence she just leads me from another horse for a few minutes until I'm calm and then away hacking we go. All schooling is done out on a hack, which is the way I like it no circles for me!
