Meet Neil

Neil Kelley has a passion for overcoming communication challenges between horses and riders.  He started Serenity Performance Horses in 2013 with the intent of creating a place for both human and equines to grow in a safe, non-judgmental environment.  As a lifelong horseman, he’s been very active in the equine community and competed on numerous breed circuits-including Arabians, Morgans, Quarter Horses, Paints, Andalusians and Drum Horses.  

Neil has coached dozens of 4H kids and their horses to reach their goals together.  His goal is always to strengthen communication between horse and rider, and create partnerships that are enjoyable for both.

Serenity Farm is conveniently located right off rte. 91 in Hatfield, MA.  The farm has a large outdoor ring and miles of trails nearby.

Your horse will feel right at home at Serenity Farm- the small farm experience is unlike most training facilities.  Neil focuses on quality over quantity to ensure he has enough time and attention each day to focus on each horse.   Keeping a smaller program also allows Neil to keep training fees lower so he has the ability to help more horses and riders connect.

Upon arrival at our facility, every horse is assessed and given an individual care plan including feeding, exercise and turnout routines based on their unique needs.  Please call to discuss your horse’s particular situation and how we can help.

Truck-in lessons and use of the arena are sometimes available depending on our schedule.

We strive to create a calm, serene environment at the barn that nurtures the development of riders and horses alike.

"Each and every horse that comes through Serenity will be treated like one of my own. It’s most important to me to be able to help the horses achieve their full potential."
