60 minute horse lesson.

If I'm paying $40 for a 1 hr lesson, what are the different amounts of actual amount of time that I am ON the horse , getting instructed, etc. how much actual time is spent on the horse getting instructed.. not counting tacking, cool down..

I have never taken lessons so who knows, but my assumption reading that would be that you have 60 minutes of lesson time. Lesson time would be active riding instruction except for possibly the first couple lessons where you are instructed on how to get and tack the horse up for your lesson.

It varies from place to place! Some places include the tacking up time in that hour, some places don't. Your best bet would be to call and ask. :) They can give you all the details

Where my son does lessons, it is our responsibility to have the horse ready to walk into the arena when lesson time starts. Cool down, untack is done after lesson time has finished

Depends on the barn and especially depends on if you still need instruction on tacking up and untacking the horse. If you can walk in, groom and tack up on your own, while the instructor finishes another lesson for instance, then it would not be included in the lesson time. If the instructor is still teaching you how to groom and tack up, then it would be included.

Warm up and cool down periods would probably be included because you're still riding and subject to instruction, I'd think. At least until you're good enough the instructor can actually leave the area and go start with another student.

If you're taking a lesson on your own horse, you might spend extra time riding and not being instructed, but if you're on a lesson barn horse, then the entire time you're on the horse would be counted as lesson time.

All of the above for me, (except for their horse, I have mine own). I have even had my lesson cut to 45mins, due to having a goal. We wanted to end the lesson on a good note that time. However, we have also gone longer in some other lessons to 1 1/2 hour.
Call the trainer and ask how she/he does it. My granddaughter's lessons are 1/2 hours for private instruction. She does this for at least a month, then she moves into 1 hour lessons in group.
