Be careful when you are shopping for lessons. Make sure you ar learning from a Quality instructor. And if you are going to be spending $20 per trail ride versus X amount of dollars to take lessons, it would be worth more to invest in your lessons.
Also, have you thought about taking lessons every other week? It may not be the most glamorous option, but it may help until you are able to get a job and help pay for weekly lessons.
Like others have said, many barns offer programs to work off lesson fees. It won't hurt to ask, and you will learn a whole lot about barn chores and horse care by doing so.
