I think it depends on each stables. I know some that would defiantely let you work for lessons because they are in need of an extra hand...but I know others that wouldn't let you because they don't need any help and would rather get the money.
To ask someone, I'd be up front and be "I would love to take lessons with you...would it be possible to work in exchange for lessons?" The more upfront you are to people, since technically they will be your "employer" the better, IMO
