A great way to explore Barbados’ neighbourhoods, plantation lands, cane fields and the scenic coastline is on horseback. Local riding centres here offer a variety of trail rides and scenic canters along the beach for both experienced riders and novices.
Most Barbados horse riding centres keep their groups small, enabling you to receive plenty of individual attention, should you need it. The east coast of Barbados is ideal for horse riding and Bath is a particular favourite. In fact, riders can often spot mongoose and green monkeys amongst the lush vegetation as they make their way down to Bath Beach, with its miles of coastline and cooling breeze.
The west coast offers more tranquil beaches, which are handily-close to the cruise terminal. So, for equestrian lovers, this is the perfect chance to enjoy a pleasant horse ride if you’re visiting the island for the day as part of a Caribbean cruise.
Alternatively, why not take the opportunity to ride through the Barbados countryside, explore the tropical beauty of the island or embark on a safari tour?
