Tasha Johns
Tasha has been riding horses since she was a little girl. She doesn't come from a long line of horseman but horses are in her blood! She  started in the showring and spent many years showing English and Western pleasure and showmanship. She decided she wanted to try some gaming events at local play days and soon went back to the showring. 
More recently, she has concentrated on barrel racing. It’s absolutely where her heart is! She loves teaching children and adults and can’t think of a better way to do so then on the back of a horse ! She spent many summers with her own Trainer and those memories are still with her to this day. She hopes to be that for people in her program. She loves to watch the bond between horse and rider and watch people become confident on the back of their horse ! This is truly her dream job!

Victoria Williams: 
Victoria has been training horses and providing horsemanship lessons, professionally in Central Oregon for 25 years. Her profound connection with horses has been evident since before she could walk and her passion for working with them has been a guiding force throughout her life. 
This is recognized by her accomplishments as a horsewoman and competitor in western equine sport, including reining, reined cow horse, cutting and many other performance horse events. During the whole of her career, she has worked with and apprenticed under some of the great horsemen and trainers of our time, including Bob Avila, Robbie Boyce, Shawn Flarida and Donnie Bricker. She has also enjoyed the opportunity to ride and train some of the most renowned equine athletes in the world, AQHA and NRCHA World Champions, Smart Zanolena and Matt Dillon Dun It and NRHA champion, Lenas Diamond Chex, to name just a few. She has been featured on the cover of The Paint Horse Journal and Cascade Horseman, and was also highlighted in the NRHA Reiner, as well as The American Paint Horse, A Photographic Journey. In addition to her professional accolades within the equine industry, she is currently working towards earning her Master’s Degree in Social Work which informs the therapeutic and personal development aspects of Cascadian Stables’ programs. 
Her unique bond with her equine partners, along with her excitement to share her love of fine horsemanship has inspired her to develop an innovative, dynamic and distinct horsemanship program. In her words, “our curriculum is a fusion of classical horsemanship principles, somatic awareness, and compassionate self discovery - horsemanship for mind, body and soul.” Her program encompasses training and riding as well as equine guided experiential therapy and personal growth work. She believes in the healing, soul enhancing power that working with horses can provide humans; it is the guiding principle of her work and vision for Cascadian Stables. 
Victoria is devoted to her family, her husband, partner and soulmate Josh and her three remarkable, teenage boys, James, Jacob, and Luke. Between keeping all the men in her life in-line, trick training their mini donkey (Buster) and trail running with their two Jack Russel’s (Beau and Barnabus) she stays plenty busy. She is happy to be raising her family in Central Oregon.

Josh Williams: 
Josh is obsessed with human potential and development and he loves blending that enthusiasm with his love of music, nature and horses. He has developed an innovative Equine BodyWork method that connects people with horses in powerful ways, and helps horses feel and perform at their best. This program is a culmination of knowledge and experience from degrees from OSU in exercise science and biomechanics, two decades as an L.M.T., a passion for performance and wellness, and a love of horses and people. Joining forces with his amazing wife Victoria, he founded Cascadian Stables Performance Horses where he was integral in creating its innovative horsemanship programs and running daily operations on the ranch. Josh has planned and orchestrated many local horse shows including Cascadian Stables’ very popular, annual Halloween Spooktacular Buckle series. He has welcomed hundreds of community members into their kids riding program, Bend’s Horse School, and he has facilitated dozens of summer riding camps and trail rides. Josh has also guided grounding meditations in equine therapy workshops as a facilitator for Discovery With Horses, an equine therapy program in Bend. He and Victoria's newest passion project is to bring the magic of horses and the wisdom of the herd to hearts and homes around the world with the virtual horse experience, My Horse Club, and are actively developing a nonprofit organization to make horses accessible to children who will benefit from the healing power they provide. 
Josh is a 5th generation Oregonian, loving husband to Victoria, and proud father to three teenagers Jacob, James, and Luke. Outside of horses and parenting, his passion is music, having studied Classical Indian Music at the Ali Akbar College of Music under Maestro Swapan Chaudhuri for many years, and performs and teaches the art of tabla, considering himself a lifelong student of music.
