was a tour of on horseback they were great, very patient with those of us not familiar with horseback riding. We saw a beautiful part of the island we wouldn't have seen without going on this tour. All of their tours are private, no crowds only for amt of people in your party. good price & the people were great & very friendly & fun. Should be an option travelers can read about

This is not a flashy set up! But if you care about the welfare and wellbeing of the horses you ride then you should consider Jah Works. The herd of 5 horses are all rescues and in great condition. They are not worked all day every day like so many riding stables in the U.K. They do not wear shoes... More

I can not thank Roli & Shaun enough for such a fantastic time! The service, views, horses and staff were all incredible. I was rather nervous at some points but Shaun's reassurance helped me grow confidence! If you love nature & need a fun time to help you appreciate the finer things in life again this is definitely a must... More

In Barbados for a week, booked a last minute horseback tour not quite knowing what to expect. Were picked up right on time at our villa, delivered to the stables where we received a warm welcome from the owner Rosie. She is very knowledgeable and obviously loves her stables and horses. Had a private hour and a half ride through... More

As we planned to go horseback riding everything went wrong. We couldn't get cash anywhere and were already late for the 4pm-Tour. Luckily Roli and our guide Sean were very understanding and patient and let us do the tour even if we couldn't pay the full price of it. What we got was extremly adventurous but fun. Me and my...

When i'm visiting Barbados this is the only place I will ride. As all the horses have been rescued & with love & compassion & have been saved by the owner of Jah Works, Roli. The negative comment on here by an american woman is unjust as Roli is not in control of the rubbish that the tourists probably throw... More

Jah Works Riding Stables was excellent! We had four adults and four children ages 5, 7, 12, and 14. We met Roli at the stables and then followed a taxi to the beach where the horses, Shawn and Damian were waiting for us. We had a gorgeous ride to the beach and the surrounding pastoral areas. The horses were beautiful... More

The training at the beginning was not an exciting process. I felt very pressured and uncomfortable. When i read the advert for the excursion it said, beach horse back riding and i didn't do that because of the conditions which is fair enough, but next time maybe call the customer and rearrange or make different plans ? The duration for... More

Vast property to ride on, field, mountain, beach. Wide trails for the most part. Only stable on the island that can accomodate heavier riders. 3 packages and time frames to chose from: 1hour trail, 1.5 hour trail and beach, 1.5 hour including meal. Horses well taken care of, nice consciencious owners. We chose the 1.5 hour package without the meal... More

What a truly memorable experience this was! From the moment we stepped onto the Jah Works property we felt we had really struck it lucky: here was a chance to experience a different, more down to earth and authentic side of Barbados. Far away from the touristy vibe of the west coast, this is a little bit of paradise. Nestled... More
