Josiane moved to North Carolina in 2000 to start her life in the reining industry under the guidance of her father Francois. Her father knew she would have to learn all aspects of the business, in order to be a great horse trainer and a Ranch owner. Josiane began by getting involved with the breeding side of the business and within a year she was managing over 7 stallions and breeding over 200 mares on-site and using shipped semen. This opportunity helped her develop her ability to choose the right combination to match a mare and a stallion and produce well-balanced foals.
During that time, Josiane also bought, sold and showed Non-Pro horses. She always placed in the top 20 Non-Pro. She was also Reserve Champion at the NRHA Futurity, placed 3rd in the NRHA Derby, won the Florida Classic 2 years in a row and gained over $300 000 in her lifetime earnings.
Josiane resigned from her Non-Pro status and moved forward with her lifetime dream of becoming a top 20 Open rider. She concentrates on training Futurity prospects for Open and Non-Pro competitors and showing in all major NRHA events.
