Riding lessons near Sacramento

I am going to visit my Grandma for a week and she agreed to give me a tide to any riding lesson I want duting that time (I still have to pay haha).

Does anyone have any recommendations for any type of jumping lessons (equitation, hunter, anything)? On the flat, am a beginner/intermediate rider, but I have never jumped. Actually since selling my horse, it has been 8 months since I've even been near a horse.

As for the area, she said anything in the Sacramento area. Roseville, Auburn, Loomis, Folsam, El Dorado Hills, etc. She lives in Roseville, so I would prefer it to be as close to that as possible, since I am going to try to get at least five lessons in that week.

From my google searches, I see a ton of extremely pricy lessons. $70 an hour? I am looking to improve my position, not go to the Olympics xD. I guess I orefer something under $50 an hour, but that is still a bit more than I want to pay. Suggestions?

Those towns are very upper class, the lessons you find there will no doubt be expensive. They might be good, I don't know but I'm sure they'll be expensive! I live in Marysville, about 30-40 minutes from Roseville. There are a couple of lesson places in Yuba City (10 more minutes out) and you can probably find some in Wheatland (20 mins from Roseville). Wheatland or Yuba City will be MUCH cheaper since we're all poor here. :)

ETA: I see this ad on Craigslist all the time. http://yubasutter.craigslist.org/grd/3758378718.html says $35 but I don't know if that's per hour or lesson or whatever.

I used to live in Folsom about 6 years ago and took jumping lessons from a place between Folsom & Roseville. It was $40 for an hour-long lesson on a school horse. I tried looking up my instructor's name but the only hit that's coming up is in Santa Cruz, so I'm not sure if she moved there or it's a different person... Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the facility.

It might have been this place: Royal Oak Farm But if it is, the instructor is a different person now. Looks like it could be worth looking into though- rates are certainly lower than $70!

The place I learned to ride is in Rio Linda. It's a straight drive up Baseline Rd from Roseville but still a bit of a drive, maybe an hour or so.

The trainer works with all ages and abilities. If you are comfortable with horses and depending on how much time you have to offer, she would probably be willing to let you clean some stalls or something in return for some ride time.

PM me if you want more info.

Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.

Another thought is to go into a local feed store when you get there. There should be plenty of postings on the wall somewhere and the people who work there will more than likely know of some good barns in the area.
