About the instructors

Caylyn Walker
Caylyn Walker has been an active equine enthusiast and animal-lover since her toddler days. She began riding lessons at a young age and then continued into a competitive riding career where she achieved multiple regional and national titles in various disciplines. In 2012 she also earned two World Championship titles in Morgan Dressage on her beloved Morgan gelding “Riley”. Caylyn’s love of trick training started when her first horse was injured and no longer able to work under saddle. She found alternative ways to keep her horse mentally active while continuing to build the partnership they had created. From horses, Caylyn expanded her horizon to trick training goats, chickens and even Zebu cows while she worked at a petting zoo during her high school years. While in school, she completed a Bachelor of Science with a particular focus on animal behavior and psychology. She continued to develop her methodologies in working with animals experimenting with body language and behavioral shaping through positive reinforcement methods. After completing her degree, she moved into a career as a Safety Manager where she developed her teaching and communication techniques to groups of people across Canada. Currently, Caylyn works full time on her farm in Jasper, ON breeding and training foundation Morgan horses. She offers clinics across Canada and does performances with her trick horses in Ontario. Caylyn has authored three books: Horseplay and Harmony Safe and Responsible Trick Horse Training, Foals With Goals and Liberty Work and Trick Training With Young Horses. Though she loves working with all horses Caylyn is passionate about working with foals and young horses at an early age. Giving them a sense of confidence using positive reinforcement techniques sets them up for a lifetime of success! Caylyn continues to offer trick horse training lessons, clinics and demonstrations and even offers trick trained horses for sale occasionally! She can be contacted through their website www.horseplayandharmony.com
