Particularly riding alone at my barn at night. There are plenty of lights to light up the riding ring, but since it gets dark so fast now I can't get to the barn during the week until 6pm.
I really want to get my horse in shape so I'd like to ride twice during the week. I'm totally fine with riding during the day by myself especially because on the weekend there is always someone out there coming and going to the barn.
Mainly I don't feel comfortable doing this because the barn my horse is at has a ton of land and right beside it is part of the Croatan Forest which goes a very long ways in our state.
I'm not so sure it would be a wise idea if no one else was out there with me.
However, I guess bears are hibernating right now but then there's other wild animals too.
