“As an equine sports medicine veterinarian, I highly recommend Josh as a massage therapist. We have teamed up on multiple occasions and it seems that our work is symbiotic and compliments each other.

He is extremely knowledgeable, does great body work and knows when to refer to a veterinarian.

The horses love what he does for them and subsequently so do their owners. His diagnostic findings have been very accurate and his medical intuition is dialed in.  

He and Victoria are an excellent team. They are both great students of the horse which leads to their high level of horsemanship. I look forward to continuing to work and learn with Josh in the future.”

Navigating Your Horsemanship Journey: Tailored Solutions for Every Challenge


At 'My Horse Journey', we're dedicated to guiding you through the complexities of equine connection with understanding, compassion, and expertise.

Merging Heart-Centered Care with Expert Horsemanship

Traditional paths often center dominance, leaving little room for curiosity or empathy. On the flip side, some heart-centered methods may miss crucial aspects of equine culture and language. 'My Horse Journey' bridges this gap, offering a credible, compassionate approach that elevates horse-human relationships.

Simplifying the Equine Care and Connection:

The multitude of horsemanship theories can be daunting. From equine communication to the nuances of handling and care, it's easy to feel lost. Our program cuts through the confusion, offering clear, effective guidance to help you navigate these challenges with confidence.

Discover Your Herd: A Passionate and Supportive Community

The equestrian world can sometimes feel exclusive and intimidating. 'My Horse Journey' offers a different experience - a welcoming community where questions are encouraged, and shared passion for horses unites us. Here, you'll find genuine connections, free from drama and judgement.

Overcoming Fear and Past Negative Experiences

Recovering from a negative experience with horses can be challenging. Our empathetic, safety-focused approach supports your healing journey, helping you rebuild trust and rediscover the joy and peace that horses bring.

Breaking Through Plateaus: Elevate Your Horsemanship

Every horse enthusiast encounters roadblocks, whether it's trailer loading issues or a sudden change in your horse's behavior. Our program provides you with the insights and strategies to overcome these hurdles, so that you and the horse are safer and have more fun! 

We understand the challenges and frustrations that come with the unexpected turns in horsemanship.

Imagine a method that respects the horse and empowers you to lead with your heart.

 'My Horse Journey' offers the roadmap to become a calm, confident, and purposeful partner.

Our unique blend of classical horsemanship and relational attunement provides the key steps and techniques for a successful journey.

 

We give you the missing pieces of the puzzle to equine connection.

Embrace these principles for a transformative experience that benefits not just you and your horse, but creates a positive impact on the world.

This is the New Era Of Horsemanship.

"I highly recommend it! It was a very rich learning experience and the cohort offered a great environment with other eager learning, horse loving riders.

Learning groundwork really built trust in my horse towards me and bettered our relationship! It's amazing how even a small amount of intentional ground work make a big impact on my relationship"

Mya Falk, Ranch Manager Bend Barley Beef


What excites me so much about this program is that it includes all of the elements that are most important to me. There's relational awareness and exploration of the self, the horse, the environment, and the cohort.

There's mindfulness and psychological awareness and exploration. There's biomechanics and equine science and psychology, and there's the most progressive horse training conversations that I've personally encountered.

Hi there, Victoria & Josh Here!

"The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery." - Mark Van Doren

At My Horse Journey, we believe horses open doors to greater joy and deeper connections. Embracing the art, science, and mysticism of horsemanship, our goal is to guide you to moments of profound realization and deeper bonds with horses.

Our Journey Together:
  • A Lifetime of Learning: Combined, we've spent over 50 years diving deep into horsemanship, bodywork, and mindfulness. It’s been a journey of constant learning and refining what we know and how we teach.
  • 70,000 Hours and Counting: That's how long we've spent teaching people and horses.
Our Story

My Horse Journey emerged from our own transformative life experiences, including overcoming enormous challenges and living off grid with our free-ranging herd. These experiences brought us to a pivotal realization: attunement with horses is intertwined with personal growth and self discovery.

Your Guides on This Journey:
  • Victoria: Bringing 25 years of professional experience, including an apprenticeship in a world champion reined/cow horse program, Victoria has not only trained and ridden national and world champions but also has a wealth of experience in horsemanship instruction, and equine therapy co-facilitation. Currently, she is expanding her horizons by studying for a Masters in Social Work at Portland State University.

  • Josh: With over 25 years of mindfulness teaching, professional bodywork, and expertise in Kinesiology, Biomechanics, and Exercise Science, he has crafted a unique approach to Equine BodyWork and mindfulness trainings for equestrians. When not working in My Horse Journey, you can find Josh pursuing his passion of Indian Classical Music. 

We're huge fans of epic tales and adventures – think Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Spiderman. These stories, where heroes 'Answer the Calling' to embark on journeys of self-discovery and unearth deep truths from within, resonate, and mirror the transformative journeys we facilitate in our programs.  We believe every student is the hero of their own story, uncovering truths and growing along the way!
