Your HORSE gets better when YOU get better.
Connection is the cure.
I'm Cait Lynch—encouraging, equipping, and empowering confident, fit, and well-rounded
horses and humans is what I do.
Set You & Your Horse Up for Success
What does success look like for you?
To hone in on your goals or foster new ones, I love helping you create a real plan of action.
(Or to help you put out fires, or change things up, or affirm that things are actually pretty good—whatever the case may be!)
The simple, common sense, step by step plan I offer is ALWAYS subject to change, just like you and your horse.
As a lifelong student of all things horses, I give my all to listen and watch, and then I guide with as much care and empathy as I can muster.
But I’m no cheerleader...
I'm Cait Lynch—encouraging, equipping, and empowering confident, fit, and well-rounded horses and humans is what I do.
Quality horsemanship and training ARE quality horsemanship and training, regardless of the breed or saddle.
And plans are fluid; they should flow and evolve, just like you and your horse.
Regardless of the level, style, or breed of horse, I enjoy meeting you where you are to help take you further, whatever that means to you.

Again...What does success look like for you?
Great question, right?
This thought-provoking question is at the heart of Cait's coaching philosophy. Collaborate with Cait to refine your existing goals or create new ones.
Do you feel like something is missing from your riding program but it doesn't feel like more time in the saddle is the answer?
You give your horse the best of everything…
- The best stable with impeccable care
- The best trainer with the most knowledge
- The best, cutting-edge veterinary service
- The best, top-drawer farrier available
- The best tack, custom made when required
Best, best, best. But…
You feel like something is missing from your time spent with your horse but you just can't put your finger on it...?
Imagine if you could make real, lasting change in one day...

Feedback About Cait...
"Cait is the most caring, intuitive and knowledgeable coach that I’ve ever met."
"Cait joined us for the very first time this year [Kawartha pony Club Rally] adding tremendous experience and flair. Challenging minds as well as the physical beings, [Cait] looks at the teams as two athletes and helps to build better partnerships. Each member took away something new they didn’t know before and some new tools to add to their box of knowledge."
"Cait has a dynamic approach and she knows her stuff when it comes to both horses and riders!"
As a retired professional dancer and coach, I appreciate the value of finding and working with another professional who has dynamic work skills and qualities. I am humbled and privileged to have been able to work with Cait Lynch for more than 13 years now – and continue to do so.
Cait is an inspirational and thoughtful leader who continues to remain curious about her coaching and her clients. She understands the anatomy of the body and ‘the what’ and ‘the how’ behind each training technique. She helps build not only her clients skills but their understanding of the why behind the training as well.
Cait works closely with each of her clients, pivoting and modifying to build a unique, supportive and positive experience. I highly recommend investing your time with Cait. And, as she says, “Stay curious”.
Originally hailing from the United States, Cait Lynch has called Canada home since 2000, and dedicates her life to coaching. While she recently stepped back from her thriving coaching business centered around human, nutrition, and fitness, Cait is excited to reconnect with her true passion—horses.
With an emphasis on helping to create confident, fit and well-rounded partnerships, Cait studies horse and rider teams from the ground up.
Coaching and training with Cait is comprehensive: Cait takes her 30+ years of coaching experience (and 48+ years as a horsewoman) and makes sure you understand the what, the why and the how to set yourself and your horse up for success.
Cait offers coaching, consultations, half-day, full-day and two-day clinics.
Rates vary depending on location, number of participants and offering requests (eg riding versus ground work/in hand work, versus trailer loading or behaviour issues, versus fitness training for riders—or combinations of any of the aforementioned).
To ensure she offers what you are looking for from a coach or clinician, prior to working with Cait, all students and participants take a brief survey.
If the spirit moves you to learn more, Cait would be happy to chat anytime about your specific needs.
Food for thought...
Straightening, balancing, and suppling work is so fundamental and of such universal value that it benefits every horse, regardless of breed or discipline, and it benefits every rider, regardless of tack and discipline. It helps the horse not only to perform at a higher level and to a higher standard, but it also keeps him sound. This type of work is physical therapy, with the added benefit of being "performance enhancing". -Thomas Ritter, Ritter Dressage
