I was wondering what everyone in or around Georgia or the Southeast pays for lessons. I am in Atlanta and looking to start riding again after a seven year hiatus and got a bit of sticker shock at some trainers here that are charging $100 per lesson. Good instruction is extremely important to me especially since I’m switching from 20+ years of h/j, but I’m noticing that it can be hard to find that and trainers with lesson horses. I don’t own my own horse and that’s honestly not going to happen for a while (thank you student loans).
Any responses, advice about riding on a budget or trainers with lesson horses within an hour of Atlanta is very much appreciated!
