Overview

Our most popular ride is the Nevis beach and trail ride which begins with a walk to the beach through an old coconut grove which was once part of Jamestown, the first capital of Nevis in the 1600's. Close by is Ft. Ashby, the first fort on the island built in 1650. Along the way, you will pass Nelson's Spring, a beautiful lagoon where clipper ships once filled up with fresh drinking water. We continue through Calhoun Estate where you will see Brahma cattle and in the distance, St. Thomas' Anglican Church, the oldest active Anglican Church in the Caribbean (1643). We then return to the beach at Beach Paradise Nevis on Paradise Beach, where we can see the beach at the Four Seasons Resort. From there, we turn east, off the beach to Paradise Estate, once a magnificent sugar plantation where you will see ruins of a sugar mill and, a little farther off, the magnificent estate homes at Four Seasons. Your ride then proceeds through the bush, near the Four Seasons world-renowned golf course. We ride past a typical Nevis home of the 1800's, made completely of cedar shingles, and on through the village of Cotton Ground, which derives its name from the production of cotton in years past. The people of this village are warm and friendly and you don't want to forget the name of your horse because the young children, who know the horses, will question you as to which one you are riding. As we make our return to the stables you will see St. Kitts to the west and the cloud covered Nevis Peak to the east. Just another beautiful day in paradise! Proprietors, The Guilberts, raised Arabian show horses for twenty-five years in California, USA before moving to Nevis in 1994. They opened the Nevis Equestrian Centre in 1996 with daughter, Erika, a trained hunter-jumper rider who conducted therapeutic riding, as a community service, for students with special needs from 1998 until 2009. Her students brought home gold silver and bronze medals from the Special Olympics held in North Carolina, USA in 1999 and from the Special Olympics World Games in Ireland in 2003.

We did the sunset ride. Because of recent rains they apparently could not use their usual routes. It ended out being a slow walk up and down the streets of the local subdivision. A pleasant walk, but not for the price they charged.More

Mr. Gilbert will take you on a trip many travelers don't get to see. Travel along the beach or up into the country on horse back. Gentle houses that know the way by heart. A camera is all you'll need.
