Riders should spare a thought for rest of us

May 31, 2013

Dear Sir,

That was a beautiful aerial photograph of Warwick Long Bay spread across more than a half page of Thursday’s paper (Thursday, May 30).

I’ve had the pleasure to live in Bermuda for five years, and I agree that Warwick Long Bay is one of world’s best beaches, and I treasure the many opportunities I have to enjoy it.

That’s why I find it so unbelievable that people would ride horses on those pink sands, and seem not to care at all about leaving horse dung behind.

I don’t see that happening at Horseshoe Bay, and I don’t understand why. Is it because Horseshoe is where the tourists go and so is better patrolled, or is it because local riders don’t care about the folks, and families, who prefer the stunning stretch of Warwick Long Bay’s pink sands and dazzling, turquoise waters?

Riders, please think twice about the citizens, residents, and visitors, who love spending time at Warwick Long Bay.


@$:Photo David Skiner Warwick Long Bay has been rated one of the top 100 beaches in the world, but our letter writer has bemoaned the effect horses are having on the area.
