The new location is hoped to be more accessible to Otter Lake cottagers, and allow the owner to host her own competitions. From left: Ethan Thomas, Owen Thomas and Emma Thomas check out the horses at GELAM, with a little boost from their mom, Laura Palmer.

A popular riding stable has found a new home in the Pontiac, with the owner returning to a location that has a lot of history for her own career.
The GELAM Riding Stable has re-opened at a new location, and owner Ginger Finan celebrated the occasion with an open house on Saturday.
“This was the location my horse was at when I was in high school,” said Finan. “It’s been about 10 years without horses on the property but having them back has revitalized the business. I think the previous owner would be happy.”
Finan explained that Cathy Lapointe, the previous owner, had passed away in a car crash in 2006.
While looking to expand her business, and attract a new customer base, the opportunity to move from Hwy. 148 to C950 Route 303 North arose. Having all the space she was looking for, plus the option to house horses indoors and much more, it was too good to pass up.
