Adult Ammie here,
Younger me evented without a true trainer at the shows with me. I had some friends help, and I would help my friends. Now that I am getting back into showing recognized shows, I have been taking lessons every now and again with a trainer that travels to shows, and is willing to coach me. But me and my friends have been traveling together and don’t necessarily feel we need to spend the extra money for a coach, the shows and travel is already expensive enough.
Before I make any moves on having a coach, what’s the going rate for coaching at a show? Does it depend on if they are showing themselves, if they have other students, or for eventing is it normally a flat price for the weekend or by phase? Just curiosity on how everyone else does it.
