cost/length of lessons

How much do you pay for lessons and how long are they? Also, what discipline do you do and how often do you take lessons. Feel free to add any other info.

I take two lessons a week at a hunter/jumper barn. They are $30 for 30 minutes

When I used to take lessons, they were 35$ for an hour group lesson. But I helped out at the barn, so I only paid 25$ I think. It was for Hunter/Jumper.

I think the local show barn here charges $50 for an hour private

The barn I am at now, I don't take lessons, it is just where my horse is, charges 120$ a month for private lessons, and I think 90$ a month for group lessons. But I am not 100% sure.

And the lessons are in any discipline, and they are all one hour long.

I take lessons once a week for $30 for an hour group lesson. It's hunter/jumper. But thankfully, if I need help and my trainer/barn owner is there she doesn't mind popping in to look and add a few helpful pointers.

My lessons are $35; we ride for about two hours. We're the last lesson of the night (we're the advanced/showteam) so sometimes we go a bit longer. I'm usually there from 6-9 (including grooming, tacking, & feeding afterwards). It's a group lesson (4 girls, including me), & I ride English & do hunter jumping. :) It's a bit expensive, but very very worth it.

The first place I took lesson was $20 for an hour and a half or so (mostly hunter lessons)

My current barn (since my trainer wants me to be her daughter, lol) is $5 for pretty much as many hours as I'm willing to stay/Lacey can stand. I usually only do lessons once every few months when Lacey either has an issue I need help with or I want some stuff to do. It's kinda wild. I'm hoping to start up taking lessons every week in the fall though.

Around here lessons range $30-$40 for 1 hour group.

My instructor charges $25 for group lessons and $40 for private. I imprint, train and take care of my instructors foals in exchange for lessons so it works awesome.
