|Mountain Equestrian Trails
|Mountain Equestrian Trails is unquestionably Belize's premier horseback riding center with a strong reputation for both innovation and professionalism within the equestrian community.
60 miles of trails, mostly old logging paths, wind through both the Mountain
Pine Ridge Reserve and the Slate Creek Preserve, allowing access to remote,
tropical waterfalls and spectacularly formed limestone caves, some of which
still contain undisturbed relics of the Maya Civilisation. Gentle, well-behaved
horses ensure that even the novice rider can relax and enjoy the exhilarating
experience of riding through a pristine environment.
CABANASThe thatched-roof Spanish-style cabanas are spacious, cool and comfortable, with private baths and hot and cold water. With Maya decor, romantic kerosene lighting and hammocks the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing. Each cabana has a deck with table and chairs. Mosquito nets, though rarely needed, are provided, so you can leave your windows open and enjoy the cool evening breezes.
The Cantina is the focal point, acting as bar, restaurant and leisure area. With its tall thatched roof and its open air design, the Cantina evokes a simple yet comfortable feeling. From every vantage point, magnificent panoramic views of the Slate Creek Preserve and Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve can be seen. The restaurant serves delicious home-style cooking.

|Your Hosts: Jim and Marguerite Bevis. Jim moved with his family to Belize in 1962, at the age of eleven. At thirteen, he bought his first dori (dugout canoe) for one bottle of White Horse whiskey. As he grew, he learned the ways of the bush, became fluent in Spanish and Creole and developed his knowledge of local culture and folklore. It was here in Belize that Jim became a true equestrian, exploring his childhood haunts by horseback and in later years becoming one of Belize's best known expeditionary guides. Maguerite is a registered nurse from Texas whose skills have naturally been extremely useful over the years, especially being the mother of 4 children.
