Training Costs

What is the average cost for 30 days of training in your area? Does any one know any good trainers in northeast Ohio?

Western and brush up on trail? I haven't really thought about how far I'd travel yet.

I pay $475 training and $385 board for my mare. My trainer is one of Canada's Top Ten Reining Trainers.

The going rate around my area is $600 on average and higher, I live right in the middle(so to speak ) of PA . Just general training , trail training , despooking etc.. I think it is higher if you want a specific discipline say with a Dressage trainer. It includes board/training .....I actually just inquired about training this coming spring for one of my geldings. This trainer won 2008 Mustang Challenge and she charges $750/month. She only lives maybe 15 minutes from me so I am seriously considering her. She is booked up for months at a time however.
I think that it is important that if you use a trainer talk to them about taking lessons on your horse from them .

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

$400-500 per month around here including board. That's what I charge and I'm pretty competitive.

For training like that, around here would cost you anywhere from $650 to $1000 per month and depending on where you go, that may or may not include feed and board. Of course, specialized training for cutting, roping, reining, WP, jumping, etc. would cost more.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Heck around here if you want a reining trainer you can get Shawn Flarida for $1000 a month.

You can find a good trainer in Ohio from $500-$700 some are less but they typically are not going to be very good. Training in one of those things that if you do your research you get what you pay for.
