It encourages the traveller to view the horseback journey from a philosophical perspective. It explains how the trip serves as a gateway to self-discovery. It warns the Long Rider to avoid egotism and vanity, seeking instead to discover that which is wise and noble.
It urges the Long Rider to contrast a single moment of personal glory against the backdrop of humanity’s collective nobility. Error or truth; celebrity or modesty; CuChullaine O’Reilly calls on the reader to find the answer to these questions by undertaking the challenge of an equestrian journey.
