Four of us had a fabulous morning walk in late November from Spicelands over the Railway Trail and down onto the beach at Warwick Long Bay. There was virtually no one else on the beach as we visited a couple of small and beautiful coves. Two of our party were quite experienced and plan to return at another time for... More

Brendan Smith was an amazing trail guide. Gave us history of the island and showed us hidden jems of the isle of Bermuda. My husband had never ridden before and he made him feel so comfortable. He always made sure he was ok and felt comfortable. I would totally recommend this to anyone. Between the woods and beach these horses... More

We visited Spicelands on a recent cruise to Bermuda. Due to weather our itinerary was changed which affected our visit. The staff at Spicelands bent over backwards to accommodate us. When we arrived we were treated like royalty. Our guide was friendly, personable, and very informative. The horses are well trained and easy to ride. The tour was beautiful with... More

We attempted to do the afternoon ride, however never even had a a chance to make it. We were scheduled for 3 pm and after being misguided by google maps we called at 2:50 and were informed that we were "late" and would be ineligible to make the ride. No where in the reservation did it state that we were... More

First off, the instructor was wonderful as were the horses. Never having ridden a horse, which the instructor knew, I was matched up with a lovely horse named 'Gypsy' who was calm, caring and knew the path perfectly. As others have described, the walk took you along lovely trails, across a street (cars stopped) and then to a magnificent beach... More
