is this fair?

I pay 300 a month for 1 lesson, 3 other times to ride. I have to go on certain days at certain times. I live in New England. Is this fair?

I actually lied, I pay 75 for a lease, but at one point I was leasing two horses so it was 125 since she knocked off 25 for two horses.

So I entered In 100-200 when I actually pay 75 for a lease.

With the lease I got to ride the horse whenever I wanted, 24hours a day 7days a week except for on Saturdays between 1-2 when the horse was used for team penning, which wasn't an issue. I had no responsibilities of the horse except for keeping her/him exercised. Food, farrier and vet bills were all covered by the stable. It also has an indoor, and outdoor arena, ten or so stalls,a tackroom and trails. It was a great deal. I board at that stable now so I don't lease but leasing was great.

I pay 75 for a lease, which boils down to 3 or 4 rides a week (depending on if the owner is riding that horse or not...usually she only rides him when her current xcountry horse is injured, so pretty rare). Lessons are 30 a week for an hour (semi-private).
