Our Team

Josée Lemaire


Ever since she was young, Josée has had a deep passion for the equestrian world. She became the proud owner of her own horse at the age of 14 and took it upon herself to start and train it in dressage. By the time she turned 17, Josée had already gained extensive experience as the stable manager of 10 Standardbred racehorses. Her duties included breeding management, grooming, and training.

Josée put her love for horses on hold to start a family with her husband, who served as a pilot in the Canadian Air Force. Her professional background has always been centered around sales and customer service. She studied computer networking and worked at Village Vacances Valcartier in various departments, including call center, corporate sales, tour operation, website management, networking, marketing, filming, camping, events, and food services management. Josée continued her career in Ontario, where she played a crucial role in preparing and opening the Calypso Waterpark. As the manager of sales and guest services, she was responsible for overseeing the computer system, website, sales and administration team, call center, reception, souvenir shop, and animation. Through her experiences, Josée developed a strong sense of discipline, multitasking abilities, and prioritization skills, which have helped shape her character.

It was in 2014 that she started the company Vintage Oasis Farm following the death of her husband suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Loving to be surrounded by her animals who help her manage her pain and suffering, she began this adventure of helping animals and humans following traumas suffered. The company started by rescuing retired horses from racing, then included the breeding of Warmblood horses as well as Weimaraner dogs.

Her ultimate aspiration is to aid individuals in uncovering the enchantment of therapy through equine interaction, a practice that has aided her family in overcoming numerous losses and hardships. Josée specializes in the desensitization of horses and working with horses with behavioural problems. She offers riding lessons that prioritize the horse's well-being and emphasizes communication between the rider and the horse.
