    I pay 4000 isk ( 51 $, 26 pounds, 32 euros) for about an hour private riding lesson ! But im usually up there for about two, grooming, tacking up and sometimes helping around ! My trainer supplies a horse and tack !
    But she´s really great ! Sometimes I will ride two horses and therefore riding alot longer and well, its kinda flexible how much time is spent mounted ! She has really tought me so much about all aspects of horses ! About tack, showing, groundwork, cleaning up tölt, getting collection and ofcourse really helped me with my posisiton ( and I could go on all day)! And she says she knows great people in the states to wich I could go later on and help train horses and gain experience I am really happy with her ! :)
    Hmm. I seem to be paying alot... but that's iceland for you I don´t really thinks its that expensive...

    When I was teaching, I charged $30 for a 30 minute lesson. My lessons frequently went over the allotted time (more like 45 mins to the occasional hour) and I refuse to take more than 2 riders at a time :)

    If I were to go back to teaching now, I would charge $50 for the same lesson.

    The dressage trainer that comes to the barn charges $75 for one one hour lesson ouch.

    Well, my lessons that are like 3-5hours a day twice a week (I ride several horses for my trainer in that time). Its $750 a month for board & training of my horse, but he has found it among his graces to not charge lessons for me

    I haven't been in a group lesson in a long time. My trainer has such a wide range of students with various levels of experience that a lot of her students mainly take private lessons. I wouldn't mind going in a group once I back up and riding again.

    Oh, boy, most people have it cheap! It's 45-50$ the cheapest in my area... :( I'm talking about the private lesson, of course. I don't know about the group lessons now.

    My last trainer charged me 30 for an hour private lesson. It was probably more like an hour and a half to 2 hours though. We would tack up the horse, she would lunge it, I would get one, do some lunge work, ride off the lunge, canter on the lunge, cool the horse off, then sometimes me and my friend (who was my trainer's daughter) would go riding in their pasture. By the time we got back and the horse was cooled off and sprayed off, it would be about 2 hours.

    I live in a small town though. Mrs. Nancy had a four horse barn, with two of the horses being 3, and not lessons horses. She refused to have two people in one lesson. She was a great trainer. It was really just a hobby for her, not a job.

    Mine is $25 per lesson. Lessons are anywhere from an hour to two hours depending on how long it takes me to get whatever we are working on. Summer I take western and then switch to english in the winter. Training on my horse is $600 per month, which is actually really low for this area.... I love my trainer....

    Considering the Aussie $ is comparitive to the US at the moment, I am absolutley choking!!

    Here's why.....

    When I was having lessons (really got to get back into it) I paid $115 for a 45 minute lesson in dressage.

    Granted it was with a top dressage instructor who was flown in from another state, and before you start thinking 'spoilt brat' he came for a week, sort of like a school thingy and taught who ever paid.
