Haha thats great! Sorry when I read that you stay in bed it made me laugh. Anyway I know how you feel, I always get sick in the winter and usually can't ride for a while. But yeah this winter/last winter(not sure what to call it but its the one we just had) was kinda reversed. Down south yous guys got more snow than we did up here. I have alot of respect for yous in the southern states casue I took a vaction down in Texas during the middle of summer...I cannot handle the heat lol.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Then you should be fine doing lessons 2-3X/month.

$15 a lesson and I have them weekly.

I wear multiple layers, have hand warmers and toe warmers and expedition weight wool socks for riding in winter. If it's REALLY cold, I go bareback so the horse keeps me warm! I figure if I'm going outside to chip frozen manure out of corrals and feed, I'm going to have some fun and ride!

My first lessons were $55 an hour on a lesson horse. They were western lessons.
And now my dressage lessons on an amazing dressage school master pony are $70 an hour.

It depends on who offers the lessons in my area. I live in PA and have paid anywhere from$25.00 -$30.00 an hour and it goes up from there. I miss the days when I was a teen and could work off lessons or get a discount. My parents helped pay for a few of mine when I was a teen too.....it was only about $10 per lesson .....Not many chances for kids to do that around here anyway that I know about.
I have been putting my lessons on the back burner in order for my daughter to take some, but can only afford maybe 2 a month...so I am spending $60/month right now.

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

I think its sort of funny that you find the Texas winters cold... I live in Alberta and it is much much colder lol. I had to pay about $1000 for 20 lessons so that is about $50 a lesson
