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.
