Nevis Equestrian Centre

The most popular ride, beach and trail, begins with a walk past Ft. Ashby, the first fort on the island built in 1650, leading you to one of the many secluded beaches on Nevis. Along the way, you will pass Nelson’s Spring, a beautiful lagoon where clipper ships once filled up with fresh drinking water.
 
As you 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). You then turn east and slowly climb the mountain slope to Paradise Estate, where you will see ruins of a sugar mill.

Your ride then continues through the bush, above the Four Seasons world-renowned golf course, to several grand local homes. You continue on through the village of Barnes Ghaut (ghaut meaning gorge or ravine), more bush and on to 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.
