The 'Where Have You Been' singer has been selected to be the Face of Barbados for her home country.

Rihanna was pictured riding a horse bareback over the weekend as part of a brand new photoshoot for her role as the new Face Of Barbados.

The 'We Found Love' star was selected by the Barbados Tourist Authority to help promote her home country for the next three years, and seemed calm and relaxed while shooting pictures for the upcoming campaign back in Barbados on Saturday (11th August).

Rihanna wore a stark white bikini top for the shoot, alongside a pair of Daisy Duke denim shorts and a striped baseball cap, while leading her horse by the reigns across a Bajan beach.

The 'You Da One' star led the animal into the sea at point point for several shots, and changed into a variety of different outfits throughout the day, as she prepares to become the Face of Barbados.

During her stay back home on the island Rihanna has been pictured out clubbing and catching up with friends, as well as meeting US chatshow host Oprah Winfrey to film scenes for the upcoming OWN special Oprah: The Next Chapter.
