I don't think calling to their friends is acceptable, but I certainly don't beat them over it. The one I leave at home can call, but the one I'm working with has to stay focused on me. My mare is pretty good about not calling, but my little one will. I watch her carefully, and when I see she is going to start, I turn her in a circle, side-step, etc. And while leading back home, I turn her back out away from home when she tries to call. It seems to work pretty well.
I'm with everyone else, the behavior of this woman is appalling. Far more unacceptable than a whinnying horse that was apparently cut too late. I hope the new instructor works out, and even if she doesn't, I'd stay far away from this one.
