Congrats on your first ride!
Honestly, I prefer riding alone. I think before the days of cell phones, and the Findmespot satellite locator, people could go out alone and get hurt and nobody could find them so riding alone was dangerous.
These days, if you have your gadgets and tell someone where you are going, you'll be fine. Especially if you trust your horse. Riding a green horse would be a different story.
IMO, being with other riders can often lead to a fall because someone else's horse spooks and then yours follows or they cause an issue and you get hurt anyway,lol. So I don't see riding alone as being any more dangerous necessarily.
Glad you had fun!
