Here’s a delightful opportunity for you to get in touch with nature while horseback riding on the beach. The Windsor Equestrian Centre, or Happy Trails Stables as it is known locally, offers trail rides every morning through the woods and onto a beautiful unspoiled Nassau beach. You’ll be picked up at your Nassau Paradise Island resort and brought to the stables, and taught basic riding techniques. Then it’s happy trails for you!
In operation since 1977, Happy Trails Stables offers trail rides from its lovely location in Coral Harbour, about 25 minutes from downtown Nassau. Over the years, they’ve participated in the making of commercials, videos and even movies like James Bond’s Casino Royale, where their 17hh Holsteiner, Monster Max, had a cameo roll! Their stables are situated on 2.3 acres of prime property, about 15 minutes from the beach by horseback. In addition to the 19 stalls, tack rooms and stabling area, there’s also a large welcome bar, barbeque area and facilities to provide every comfort. (Please note there is a maximum weight limit of 200 pounds; children must be 12 years of age or older.)
…AND THE TRAILS
Happy Trails is the only trail-riding facility in Nassau, and offers a one-and-a-half-hour trail ride every morning, six days a week. Your group will be picked up from your hotel by the Happy Trails courtesy bus and brought out to their stables, where you’ll be given some basic riding instruction. Then it’s off to the trails, leading through the woods and onto a beautiful unspoiled beach. The various trails lead mostly to the beaches of Coral Harbour and Adelaide, a nearby village and alongside the natural lake of Corrie Sound. The pace is leisurely and no special experience is necessary to enjoy a wonderful horseback ride!
