I'm going to Forth Worth for half a year to do my internship and would very much like to continue horse riding. Only I could not find any horse riding schools that charge less than 40dollar for one hour. In Holland I pay 15euro for a lesson, which is about 18 dollar, so I must say that I was a bit perplexed when I saw the rates.

Are there any schools in the neighborhood that charge less than 40dollar?

(I will be staying at the marquis apartments at 4200 Bridgeview Drive)

Thanks
Tamara

you are living in an area in FTW that is fairly urban
there are no parks where people go horseback riding locally

you are going to have to go outside town I think to find any riding locations
I don't know where you found the ones you say charge so much but Keller, Aledo, Burleson are towns on the W and SW side of FTW that might have stables
as far as the rate--18 an hour sounds very cheap to me--I doubt you will find anything at that price but there are several listings in FTW area on this link
none of those sites I checked had prices listed
maybe if there is another web site they have prices might be provided without calling

it is possible that for long term contract you might be able to negotiate a lower price

I have also been checking out riding opportunities around Fort Worth and founds rates of about $40 an hour towards the Benbrook, Aledo, Weatherford area. It seems to be the going rate.

Well, there you go. $20.00 at Happy Horses is only $2.00 an hour over what you're paying now. Maybe you were actually hoping to find something cheaper than the $18.00 you currently pay?

I'm surprised you found anything at the $20.00 level. Horse upkeep is expensive, even if you own the property. Then you factor in lessons which involves a person's time, plus wear & tear on tack and the fact your horse has to put up with an inexperienced rider, that's what I call downright cheap.

You get what you pay for. Try Starline Stables. They are just north of ft. worth and reasonably price with a nice indoor arena.
