I was also about to say consider leasing but you just started. In moments like these, you might just have to roll with the punches (take as many lessons as you can). If you have transportation available maybe take a lesson at a different barn but not as often (for cost reasons). That way for the winter/summer months you're not just letting your riding muscles go into limbo. Do you have a job? If that's the case, it might be beneficial to save up during the 'off' months, and look for a lace that offers lessons year round' (see if they have lesson packages you can save up for).
I'm in a similar-ish conundrum myself actually!
