How should riding and paid working student positions work?

Typically, like what I did for a while was I would do 3 hours of work that my trainer tells me to do, and then I would get to do a hack on the horse that my trainer and I agree on. But each trainer or owner will have a different amount of work you have to do. If you are getting a free lesson, you will have to do more work.
