$35 gets me at least an hour lesson on my horse one on one (have had many lessons lasting two hours, depending on what we are trying to accomplish and how my boy is doing). This does not include tacking up or cooling down. Am currently riding in a western saddle, soon to tackle english....we began in the fall working on basics, now I make suggestions for what I need improvement on, or she makes suggestions for new things to try. Her specialty is dressage, I think I would like to try it out eventually after I become comfortable in the english saddle.
Price is supposed to be going down, now that we are at a new barn, she is changing the lesson pricing if you ride your own horse, so my next lesson on Monday should be cheaper!
Sometimes we even trade for lessons....I have photographed her horses, painted and drawn some, I help her out around the barn if she is falling behind, help with camps, etc.
