About Trail Rides:
What island adventure would be complete without enjoying a Trail Ride on the beach or on other picturesque trails? Due to the beautiful weather all year round, horseback riding is one of the many perennial Activities in Bermuda that make for a relaxing day on the island.
Enjoy this Bermuda Thing to Do by riding trails through dense jungle, along the beaches, through villages, or on the old Bermuda Railway Trail. The railway was opened in 1931 in response to the island-wide prohibition on cars. Why the ban on automobiles? The people of Bermuda, aware that visitors would come to Bermuda for peace and quiet, were afraid that cars would cause them to go elsewhere. The Bermuda Railway ceased operations in 1948, and in 1984 the government of Bermuda decided to turn most of the 22-mile long tracks into trails for hiking and cyclists.
Naturally, equestrians found their way on to the old track as well. There are many riding centers on the island which offer guided tours on horseback. One of the oldest operations offering this Activity in Bermuda is Spicelands Riding Center which is located in Warwick.
They offer trail rides and lessons. Spicelands location provides easy access to the Old Railway Trail, and many of the island’s top beaches. Mike Watson’s Performance Horses, also in Warwick, is another option for those who want to enjoy this Activity in Bermuda. Mr. Watson is one of Bermuda’s most accomplished horsemen and his tours take you through some of the most scenic terrain near our Bermuda Resort.
After your trail ride you may be ready for your next adventure! Other top Activities in Bermuda include SCUBA diving and snorkeling, jet skiing, or just lounging on the sand of our gorgeous private beach. As soon as you climb out of the saddle, canter back to your luxurious Accommodations at Elbow Beach Bermuda Resort & Spa.
