“Great time!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We just returned from out visit in Bermuda and while we were there, we did an hour and a half ride with Spicelands. It was great! It was just my husband and I on our ride so were able to canter a bit more than a normal group ride (our instructor said). We went through lots of trails, down to the beach, on some roads, all over! I had never ridden a horse so it was a new experience. I would have been fine with an hour ride, rather than 1.5 hours, but it was fun. Our guide (can't remember her name!) was excellent! She was very friendly and told us all about the places we were going, about the horses, she had my camera the whole ride so she took like 100 pictures of the scenery and us on the horses. We paid $270 for the two of us for a 3:00pm, 1.5 hour ride. It would have been more expensive if we would have booked it through our hotel (Fairmont Southampton). The horses were very well tamed. We had a great time!

My boyfriend and I were visiting Bermuda via a cruise. We wanted to do something what wasn't part of the "ships activities" and preferred something we could book independently. This was an EXCELLENT choice. My boyfriend is not so much of an animal person and he was so pleased with the experience!! We booked a private ride with Brandon, not only did we enjoy his company he took some AMAZING pictures! This is definitely a one of a kind adventure in which you will have great time surrounded by BEAUTIFUL scenery.

“Beautiful Trail Ride”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We absolutely loved our trail ride! We chose the 1 hour group trail ride, and the scenery was spectacular! If you go on this trail ride, you'll get to see some of the most beautiful beaches in Bermuda. Our guide, Brandon, was fun and informative, and the horses were very well behaved. If you or someone you are traveling with is nervous about riding, request Gypsy. She is as mild as a lamb and will do all the work for you!

“Fantastic Experience”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

What a delightful experience we had on our early morning ride. Brendan was our guide. He did a good job of teaching us about the history/culture of Bermuda. The horses seem to be well cared for. The facilities are very nice. Everyone we encountered at Spicelands seem to have the horses' best interest at heart. It was nice to know that several of the horses are rescue horses. Jill road Blair, a rescue horse, who was sweet tempered. I road Gypsy, who was very tolerant of my lack of riding experience. When we return to Bermuda, we will ride at Spicelands again. We highly recommend them.

We had a very fun time riding the horses with Brandon as our guide. The trails and the ride to the south shore beach were beautiful.
