When horses and riders have been introduced, the ride heads off, and up over the Windy Gap, viewing the splendour of Caragh Lake and the valley beyond.  The ride then continues on to Coomasaharn Lake enclosed by Horseshoe Mountain, followed by a scenic ride over an Irish Bog, finishing for the day at Mountain Stage. The overnight stop for Sunday night is by the area of quaint village, Glenbeigh (Glenbeigh comes from Gleann Beithe, the Glen of the Birch Trees).  Surrounded almost entirely by mountains, Glenbeigh offers a famous friendliness and humour. The beauty of the area is breath-taking, with the River Behy and Rossbeigh Strand close by.  History is evident throughout the locality and such a destination as Winn’s Folly Castle is well worth a visit.
