My daughter and I both joined Cantercall recently, after learning of their location. The first thing that struck me was how much riding all the students were doing during the lesson. They were constantly in motion which was a large departure from how we previously rode. We actually had to “catch up” in our posting trot to build strength and stamina. I was also immensely impressed with the quality of the lesson. Lauryn is constantly engaged with her students, respectfully coaching, encouraging and ensuring they are learning how to ride safely and properly. My daughter loves Lauryn and Emily (who also teaches). She feels so safe in their teaching style, she will step outside her comfort zone and stretch her boundaries. I’ve had the pleasure to watch all the kids interact with Lauryn on “Barn Mice” weekends. Her belief in their capabilities is sometimes higher than their own. Yet, encouragement and her ability to let them safely solve a problems, has resulted in thriving children who want to work, offer solutions and leave the barn happy, tired and contented. It is more than I could have hoped for. The community this place has is wonderful. From Lauryn’s soup bubbling away in the crockpot on weekends for all to have, Pony Club meetings, barn events, to simply enjoying the company of the other people there, I feel truly blessed to have fallen into such a wonderful place. Finally, the care and concern given to the horses at the heart of the schooling program is wonderful. Each schooling horse is as well treated as the children who ride them. Lauryn utilizes teachable moments to educate the kids about kindness and respect to all creatures. Cantercall has easily become a second home on weekends and a marvelous place for my daughter to grow up in an environment that values children. S.A
Coming to Cantercall to rediscover my love of horses has been wonderful! After many years away from riding, while raising my kids and building a career, going to Cantercall has become a highlight of my week. Lauryn’s knowledge, guidance, support and encouragement have helped me to love to ride as much as I did as a kid - maybe more! Her horses are happy and kind to their riders. Her staff are welcoming and friendly as are her clients of all ages. If you’re looking for a place to learn and grow and love on some wonderful horses, this is the place to be! J.W.
What do I love about Cantercall? Mostly Lauryn Tambling. I have been riding with Lauryn for over 22 years. The new location in Mono is the best place ever! We have a big indoor arena, a large sand ring, jump paddock plus cross county fences in the lower valley pasture. I have boarded two horses with Lauryn over the years and I am very pleased with the care my horses have received. Furthermore I have successfully competed at dressage shows with two of Cantercall"s school horses. Lauryn is a an amazing coach and I continue to learn every time I ride. S.R.
