Yesterday when I was at the barn, I heard a mom yelling at her child because of the cost of a riding lesson. (now let me fill you in)
My daughter's trainer, same as this other girl's, has stopped working at barns because it doesn't earn enough money, but she is still willing to give weekly lessons to my daughter and this girl. When the trainer was working at the barn, she got $10 per lesson and at our old barn she got $20. The overall cost of a lesson was either $40 at our current place and $50 and the old barn. The trainer is planning to charge a (common) price of $40 per lesson.
To continue with the story, the mom was very mad (to use a non bad word) at her child because the trainer only got $10 so she thought that the trainer shouldn't charge more than that and the daughter said that the rest of the money was going towards gas money and the trainer is coming out escpecially for her and my kid so the extra money was for the 45 min it took her toget overhere. Her mom added that her husband, who travels outside of state for work jobs (painting houses and stuff), doesnt include bask the price.
So, my final question is... Does the cost of an outside barn lesson include gas price/travel time or as the trainer being a rip off?
