I personally don't have an issue riding at night/in the dark..BO doesnt want her horses being ridden because of the risk though. Since I don't own ST yet and don't know all the trails by heart, I wont do it though. If I were at my old barn, Id be running barrel and pole patterns at night, lol.
I can see relatively well at night and never use a light unless im outside going up/down stone steps (im clumsy with those, lol), so it's never bothered me. I go for walks in the woods at night alone all the time, though Im always armed with a knife or two as well as my personal intimidation factor. Most guys (the creepy ones, lol) wont even come up to me if they get a glance at me in light because Im usually the same size as or bigger than them. I don't worry much about people or animals aside from the occasional bucks, as they're nasty critters. My horse is quite literally bombproof, so even on her I wouldnt worry much about anything. I am scared to ride along the road at night to the trails, as there arent any street lights and cars FLY on that road. If I had access to trails without having to take the road though, you can bet I wouldve convinced BO awhile ago to let me take her out at night, haha.
