For me it's about $44 CDN for 1 hour, but she does combo packs where you can buy a certain amount of lessons and get big discounts. She also sometimes throws in free lesson time - she gave me an extra hour one day. I'm lucky! :)

$40 dollars and I get a lesson for like 3 hours, plus use of other horses, including her trained cutting mare and yearlings. Yes my trainer is amazing!

I don't remember if I replied to this or not, if I did, ignore me.

$40 for one hour private
$25 for 30 mins private

my trainer does not give group lessons, nor would I want one.

I pay $50 for a half-hour private lesson and $35 for a group lesson. The lessons would be cheaper if I went to a barn further outside of the city but I would end up paying the difference with gas for my car, so it works out in the end. :)

I pay $40 for 80 minutes with a very experienced trainer/instructor. She is 66 and I hang on her every word. She rescues horses and does a great job getting them fit again. She considers the $40 a donation to the horses. I usually give her more and bring bags of treats, extra brushes and hoof picks too.

I pay $35 for private 1 hour, there's a discount for group lessons I'm assuming they're $20-25 an hour. Other barns in my area are the same prices for only HALF hour lessons

For a private lesson (that's all my trainer does) it's $60 / 45min. My last trainer was $70 for a private lesson, I think.
