When I was a teenager I rode alone at night, on the trails all the time. I was also bareback, with only a halter and a lead rope! It was such a great way to really connect with my horse. I used her eyes and trusted her to keep us safe. But she was amazing and I was riding her every day. As long as you trust him, and as long as you keep your phone with you I say go for it. Is the BO anywhere close? Make sure you tell people what you are doing, where, and when. Have someone call you at certain times to check and make sure you are ok!
Now I don't, I live wayyy out in the boonies (bears, coyote, bobcats, supposed mtn. lions, and who knows what kind of people...), I have a kid and DH to think about, and I'm not riding very often. Guess as you get older things get scarier. LOL! I wish I still felt as invincible.
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
