As to riding at dark, I use to ride quite a bit into and long past dark. I never did this alone unless I accidently lost track of time or for just the short "last leg" after we would get near our respective homes and split up. With a group of trusted friends/family, it can't be beat. It is also "timing", to be headed home on a familiar path after it gets dark. Personally, I would not intentionally do it alone.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
