Our History: Since its inception in 1953, Gelinas farm has grown from a
small cattle and livestock transportation operation into a working horse and cattle farm offering lessons, clinics, camps
and training. The farm encompasses 100 acres of fertile pastures, forests and ponds. Today, Gelinas farm is
still family owned and operated by Joanne Gelinas-Snow and her husband, Artie Snow.
The Gelinas Farm philosophy is one of mutual trust and respect; for our clients, our horses, our cattle and our land.
We strive to create an atmosphere of acceptance, support and fun. Whether you are an experienced rider or a beginner
we have a lessons, camps and clinics to fit you.
The driving force behind our horse operation, simply put, is
Quality Horsemanship. It means providing the horseman with the knowledge and skill that allows them to communicate
with their horse in a thoughtful manner. Quality horsemanship will bring the horse and ridertogether as a team.
It is communication based on the knowledge of a horses innate, natural characteristics and instincts. It is subtle
and is based on body position, touch and feel. Horsemanship always takes precedence in our horseback riding lessons.
Horsemanship is a practice that is performed at all times and crosses all disciplines and breeds.
