reetings from Jah Works Nature Tours
Come join us for a real Barbados Horse Riding adventure & Holiday, as you discover the Scotland District, which is considered the most beautiful part of this wonderful island. The complimenting tantalising view of the Atlantic Ocean's pounding surf makes it a truly wonderful experience and one that?s not to be missed.
At Jah Works Nature Tours & Riding Holidays in Barbados, horseback riding tours, nature walks, refreshing beach horse rides or even picnics are adventurous, informative and fun. As you explore the mountains, cart roads, forest & countryside with their towering Mahogany and Coconut trees you can take in the breathtaking views and sights of the rugged east and north coasts of Barbados.
While on the trails you can sample delicious fruits from the local fruit Orchard, take pictures of the historic Morgan Lewis Sugar Mill, the swinging Green Monkeys, and the many duck ponds with their beautiful Lilies.
