My fiancee and I chose the Spiceland's Trail ride as one of our shore excursions on our Norwegian Cruise. As a first time rider I was a bit nervous about getting on a horse.

This was my second time horseback riding with the Spicelands team. It was amazing! I went to the early ride because I wanted to go on the beach with the horses. It was worth getting up early. It was so fun. The horses are very calm and the guide, Brandon, knew each horse individually. I love the fact that they... More

If you love horses, the beach, and a personable, knowledgeable tour guide - Spicelands Riding Centre is the place and Brendan Smith is your man. I am very particular about the condition of the animals in "For Hire" situations and the Spicelands horses were in excellent body condition, well shod for their work, and obviously very well cared for. Brendan... More

Our family did the trail ride with Brendan down to the beaches. We had a great time. Brendan was amazing and gave us a great history lesson about the island. Highly recommend it for families.

Calling them proved a challenge as our cell didn't work in Bermuda however I emailed them at 7pm and had a reply by 9am the next day. Neither my hubby or I had EVER rode but we loved it. I'd imagine an experienced rider might want to pay extra for a private ride so you aren't stuck with slow newbies... More

Activity is advertised as horseback riding on the beach - "the horses love going in the water". 55 minutes of the 60 minute ride were spent on rocky trails behind people's houses. When we finally arrived at the beach it was time to turn around and go back. No riding on the beach. I am an experienced rider and was... More

Our family took a cruise to bermuda in late August, and we decided to do some horseback riding. It was my husband, 14 y/o daughter and myself. We took the local bus from the cruise ship to the riding center. The bus driver was kind enough to let us know when to get off. Once there we signed a waiver,... More

Our experience here was wonderful! We chose to take the bus from our cruise ship to Spicelands. (It was super easy!

Great time for non-experienced riders (2 adults and 2 teens), no one wanted to go but me. Turned out everyone LOVED it! Beautiful ride through trails to beach. Went in water. Horses were gently. Well worth the price. You won't be disappointed. Our guide,Teresa was fantastic.

I visited here with my sister in law (who is a riding school instructor) to find fabulous friendly staff and lovely horses.....

Hello Rachael, I was so sorry to read you did not enjoy the Trail Ride. The access to the water is seasonal and we usually are permitted on the beach early in the morning although the law prohibits horses & dogs after 8.30am. Sadly this year a swimmer complained and we were not allowed in the water. However we do... More
