Welcome to Course #2 of the Horseplay and Harmony Academy, The Cornerstones! We are so thrilled to have you and have so much packed into this course we can’t wait for you to see it!
We will start off by discussing horse personalities and how they interact with the different types of tricks we can teach our horses. From there we will dive right into teaching some ‘foundation’ tricks such as saying ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and will also teach your horse how to give a kiss. We will continue on to learn about targeting and then advance the back to object trick learned in the Fundamentals course to an actual sit-down!
As you move into the further modules of this course series we will dive into everything you need to know about pedestals, pedestal work, and platforms and then move onto lunging with a natural progression to liberty lunging. We will wrap this course series up with bowing in an easy to understand 4 step method!

About the instructor
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!
