Trained
Around here I pay $60 for a 30 min private lesson and there's no such thing as a group lesson. That's also me hauling my horse in for the lesson, not them coming to me. For $40 for an hour, I'd be tickled pink, especially if I really liked the trainer.

OK...so if I understand this correctly....the trainer/instructor DOES not work at the barn, but drives in to give lessons...correct? If that is the case, then $40 a lesson is cheap...too cheap. A trainer like that is considered "freelance" and can set their own price to cover the cost of travel to the barn and whatever fees the BARN is going to charge that trainer for use of the facilities to give a lesson.

You are correct, my daughter and her friend are moving to a barn where they can both lease a horse and their trainer can come in for free. The owner of the barn has no issues with it. Thanks for your reply

Wel, that's good for you that the barn owner doesn't want a piece of the pie! My sister does eventing, used to own an eventing farm but sold it many years ago. She does does lessons...but goes to whereever the horse is, and I believe she charges $65-$70 an hour.
