Lauren Thompson & Allen Cintas
Lauren Thompson has been riding since she was 6 years old, and began a long career in Academy at 7. During the end of high school she began working at a local barn.
She attended the College of Wooster and competed in intercollegiate hunt seat and dressage. Whenever she had time during breaks and the summer, she continued showing in Academy and working at local barns. She graduated in 2014 with a BA in Psychology. After a year at home, and her first time showing out of Academy in the Arabian world, she started at William Woods University.
At William Woods Lauren pursued her love of riding and training horses, and found herself in a new passion in leather working. Soon after her 2017 graduation with a BS in Equestrian Science (saddle seat concentration), she began making her own tack, wallets, and other leather goods. In 2019, she purchased her first horse, an ASB gelding named Mr. Tomfoolery. Lauren now attends shows as a competitor, a vendor, and sometimes both at the same show!
Allen Cintas is new to the equestrian world, with more of a background in "steel horses". Allen enjoys going to shows and supporting his Show Horse Tack customers by both supplying them as a tack resource and cheering from the sidelines.
Show Horse Tack, Inc. was founded in 1990 Marvin Huber and Cathy McKinley. After they retired it was purchased in May 2020 by Lauren and Allen.
