Ride off to Nevis

This February, the Nevis Equestrian
Centre is celebrating its 10th anniversary by offering discounts on
horseback rides and lessons. The Centre is offering 10% off all individual
rides and lessons from February 1st through 13th (corporate groups excluded)
and, for something extra special, couples looking for a unique way to spend
Valentine’s Day can take a romantic horseback ride at a 50% discount on
February 14th.

The most popular ride, combining both beach and trail, begins with a walk
past Ft. Ashby, the first fort on the island built in 1650, leading riders
to one of the many secluded beaches on Nevis. Along the way, riders pass
Nelson’s Spring, the site where Lord Admiral Nelson’s crew collected fresh
water for their ship.

Turning east, the path leads slowly up the mountain
slope to Paradise Estate, where there are ruins of a sugar mill as well as
the estate homes at Four Seasons Resort Nevis. The ride then continues
through the bush, above the Four Seasons’ world-renowned golf course, to
several grand local homes, through the village of Barnes Ghaut, and on to
the village of Cotton Ground.
