I ride alone more often then not, but usually only if someone is on the property somewhere, just in case.

I also do ride in with a helmet on a large majority of the time.

After two years... Ugh... I'm sorry, barrelbeginner... ):

Awesome! I'm glad I'm not the only one who rides with a helmet any more. The majority of teens I know do not. I just kind of cross my fingers and hope nothing happens, but it makes me a bit nervous at times.

So, most of you will ride alone as long as someone knows you're out... Hmm... Somehow I kind of consider someone being home but sleeping as the same as being alone in terms of an outside emergency. That is not going to make finding a good time to ride easy. L:

I ride alone all the time. I really don't mind it because its mostly arena work. Trails I usually have someone with me, but everyone in a while I go out alone. It's fun just being alone with your horse on trail sometimes, gives lots of time to just think about stuff.

I don't ride with a helmet, I wouldn't mind riding with one, but I just don't because my wallet is too tight to give up money for one haha.

How often do yall ride? I try ride almost everyday unless the weather is bad and raining. The arena is a huge mess and floods because it sits in a canyon so all the water runs down into it.

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

I try and ride every single day, or six days a week if I feel like karma needs a break, but I had to give my mare a week off or so because we have nowhere to ride at the moment...we moved to a new barn and the arena is currently filled with plants and ants...lol

I ride daily, or a couple days running and then a break so Benbo can have a rest. I also hack out on my own more often than not, and always wear a helmet. It's the done thing here, as well as the fact that I've hit my head enough times to know I need one!

I can only ride about three times a week. Not enough! But then again, it's not too bad. :)

I ride once a week in my lesson and then every now and then I can get a ride in on a friends horse or something. I always ride in a helmet, it is required at my barn and I really do not mind. Even though I trust my horse, you just never know and I would rather not risk my noggin! Once you get used to it you never really feel it.

Yeah, I don't even notice mine anymore unless it's really hot or humid.

I try to ride everyday, sometimes it's every other day. Most of the time it's just a short ride for like 30 minutes. But if I go for a really long ride one day, then I give him a break. :)
