$40 is what I pay for a private lesson. The price is commonly between $35-50 for just a regular lesson around the Dallas area.

Although we do have several instructors that specialize in different disciplines in the area and the cost can easily hit $100 for a private lesson on your own horse that you trailer in.

I'm not currently taking any lessons, but I've checked out prices around here, and it seems anywhere from 40-80$ is the norm for an hour lesson.

I paid $15 for an hour
I am going to take lessons soon and apparently this lady is reeeaaallly good and will pay $30. The most expensive here I think is $35 but could be wrong. Some of you guys pay A LOT. Im glad to live where I am because it's a lot cheaper. I would prefer to only pay $25 a lesson but $5 more won't hurt :)

It varies around here. I've seen $25 to $75 (for half an hour or so)

I'm still looking but a trainer I may work with charges $35 per hr.

Dressage/45 minute private/ $60. Good considering I was paying the same 10 years ago (different coach -both cert level 3 and international competitors).
