    I'm in Eastern Ontario and I've gotten quotes from about 15 barns in my area and all were the same price range. Seems that's what my area is!

    If you want to ride a show horse, then you must be taking two lessons a week, which is $250. Otherwise, it's a schoolie for $140 for once a week lessons. Some of the schoolies are more advanced for sure, but are not comparable to the show horses. This is actually the average price range for my area. Other barns I've seen once a week has been: $185, $150, $160, $190. These are all 60 minute group lessons.

    Tinyliny things are expensive out here! But you get so many very good instructors that have gone to the top that you don't have to pay a fortune for lessons. Saddles, bridles, rugs and numnahs I bregrudge buying out here because its so expensive! Order online ;D

    Sometimes I think its better learning on a stubborn horse, providing the horse knows its job, and is only being stubborn until you learn it correctly, and won't work right until you do.

    WOW!! I'm in Southwestern Ontario and I pay $140 a month for 4, 45 minute lessons from a reputable coach... I feel blessed!!

    Things are more expensive in eastern Ont but to pay $1,000 a month to ride schoolies is a lot to pay.

    Where I am you can get a private lesson from experienced proven coaches for about $100.00 on your own horse.

    In a lesson barn ( barns where showing is a priority) they will charge more with group lessons running about $50-$75 per week and private about $100.00 per week. In both cases that is one lesson a week.

    In some of the more general barns ( the non showing kind) it will range from $30.00 to $50.00 for group to about $75.00 for private on their school horses. Again at once a week.

    $140 a month is also for four 60 minute lessons a month from a really reputable coach as well, with one lesson a week scheduling.

    Ooooh! Makes sense! I think people are mixed up whether you meant that price per lesson or that price per month.

    Would it be possible for you to do 2 lessons a week and find a free lease? I've been leasing for about a year and a half and all but one have been free leases. I work to ride, I don't have to pay anything. (I'm in Western Canada.) But, that being said, I think it might benefit you to do more lessons each week, even just for another 6 months. Build up more confidence first, then look at leasing. Just my opinion:)
