Thursday - Sheephaven
Today the trail ride takes us through meandering country lanes bordered by weathered stonewalls, overlooking the indescribable view of Sheephaven Bay.
With Port na Blagh (the Port of Many Colours) picturesquely sheltered against the Atlantic. We have an exhilerating canter along the strand at Marble Hill to open up the pipes.
As we progress through the day, we leave behind the coastal scene and approach the rugged expanse of the Derryveagh Mountains.
We ride under the shadow of the mighty Muckish Mountain and its foothills, where the Golden Eagle reigns supreme. We follow abandoned railway tracks through the wilderness with nothing but sheep to block the way.
We descend out of the mountains returning to the coast, to home just in time for dinner.
