I charge $300/month for 3-4 sessions per week.

Or $25/session, depending on the person.

I charge $85 for two hours or $120 for a day (4h).

Although some Dressage/Eventing/Showjumping coaches in Australia charge $440 a day.
I don't know of any riding schools, or where people board (they arnt common in AUS). :)

But just to comment on your prices, per month I would think around $800 at the most. ESP if they are just a basic learning school.

Yea like I mentioned before its $1800 a month (including board) but I don't know how often there working your horse and training him/her. I would think once a day for that price.

I know of only one trainer around here and she charges only $350 a month for boarding and training a horse. To me, that's pretty high...

For $1800 they better be working my horse every day of that 30 days, and I better get a totally finished horse back!! Not to mention massages & chiro for the horse, a cushy stall, fresh bedding daily, the best food...the works of a five star horsey hotel! :) :)

Honestly, I don't think I would ever pay that...even if board is included.


I think in our area, the average of board + training for 30 days is about $750 (board being between 400 and 500).

Most places its is around $500 here, board included. Horses and horse stuff is cheap around here too. Some places will give you a 30 day tune-up for like 300 w/ board.
