Caylyn Walker – Horse Trick Clinic – June 1 – 2, 2019 

10 Spots in the morning for this clinic

10 Spots in the afternoon for this clinic

People just need to bring their horses, a halter and a lead rope.  The clinic is open to all ages of handlers as long as they can safely control their horses (children under 10 need to have a parent that can assist them if necessary).  Horses do not need to be rideable to participate in the clinic, everything we do is from the ground.

Caylyn Walker has been an active equine enthusiast and animal-lover since her toddler days.  She began riding lessons at a young age and continued into a competitive riding career achieving 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 has a Bachelor of Science with a focus on animal behaviour and psychology which she has applied to her teaching techniques.  She continued to develop her methodologies in working with animals experimenting with body language and behavioural shaping through positive reinforcement methods. Caylyn is a professional trick horse trainer and author of Horseplay and Harmony Safe and Responsible Trick Horse Training (available for sale on Amazon) and is pleased to be offering Trick Horse Training Clinics and Performances across Canada. Caylyn has performed at a multitude of events and instructed students and horses of all ages at her clinics. She takes a thoughtful, step-by-step approach to deliver a fun-filled and educational experience for everyone. Her clinics are engaging and focus on a force-free training experience built to foster a bond and trust between horse and human. Ever wondered how to teach your horse to hug, smile, wave, or take a bow? Take one of her clinics and find out how!

Most recently, Caylyn and her husband have relocated to a Christmas Tree and Maple Syrup Farm in Eastern Ontario where they breed/train and raise foundation Morgan Horses.  Caylyn offers trick horse training lessons, clinics and demonstrations and even offers trick trained horses for sale occasionally!
