On 20 May 2008 Walker was seriously injured while pig hunting in Taranaki when he fell down a 10-metre high bank. He was taken to Taranaki Base Hospital and then transferred to Auckland City Hospital with serious head injuries. He scored a win in only his second ride after his accident, at Matamata on 4 December 2008.
In 2005 Michael returned to New Zealand and became stable rider for leading Matamata trainer Mark Walker. With that deal the winning feeling returned and in March 2006 he producing a perfectly timed ride on Pentane to win New Zealand's richest handicap, the Auckland Cup.
Still only 20 when he became a fully fledged jockey in April 2004, Walker celebrated the next day by riding five winners at the Woodville-Pahiatua Racing Club's meeting in southern Hawke's Bay. Despite not riding in New Zealand for three-quarters of the season, Walker finished with 107 wins, only seven behind Matamata jockey Leith Innes who won the 2003–04 premiership. However, he was awarded the apprentice of the year title for the season.
Wanting to further his career, Walker announced in May 2004 that he was moving to Australia to live in Melbourne, following in the footsteps of other champion New Zealand jockeys such as Midge Didham, Greg Childs, Brent Thomson, Shane Dye and the Cassidy brothers who made their names overseas.
Walker left with the blessing of Sharrock and the New Zealand racing fraternity. He made an immediate impression a few days after moving to Victoria, when he rode 30 to 1 shot Monde Special to win the Warrnambool Cup. A couple of weeks later he rode Chloe With Class to win at Moonee Valley to record his first metropolitan win, and followed with a treble at Bendigo on 20 May 2004 on Lord Orb, Swift Rule, and Scopari.
His ride on Danestorm to win the Brisbane Cup in June 2004 was hailed by the media. But then he went through a period of poor form and wins were few and far between.
In his first year as an apprentice (the 1999–2000 racing year), Walker had an astonishing 131 wins to not only win the apprentices’ championship but the jockeys’ premiership as well (his first of three). While apprenticed to Sharrock, Walker won 653 races, most in New Zealand (a record 631 wins), but also in Australia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore and Macau.
