    Riding alone

    Do you ride alone or do you always have a partner/buddy with you in case of an accident?

    I ride alone, no choice, always carry phone on me, also don't do anything too exciting when on the trail to avoid mishaps lol!

    I prefer to ride with a friend but sometimes its hard to find someone with the same hours so I ride alone. When I do that I always text someone with the time, the location, where I am headed and when I expect to be back. That way if something happen they at least know where to start looking.

    I always ride alone, sometimes a flatmate is home which is good, I don't like the idea of me falling off and not being found for 10 hours :P However that's the way it mostly is. I'd like some riding buddies, but I don't know any of the horse people on my street.

    I don't have any friends with horses whatsoever, save for some friends online who are nowhere near me. So I don't get the option of going with someone, as much as I'd like to. I always have my helmet, my phone, and a good knife on me JUST in case. I'm figuring on making a little trail pack to take with me with a few essentials - a mini first aid kit, extra rope, and whatnot because if something happened to me I'd be on my own.

    I prefer to ride alone. I wear a helmet and a body protector in every ride - even when I'm sticking to the same arena. I also keep my phone with me. My husband can track my cell phone online.

    The times I'm out riding don't usually coincide with other boarders so unless I previously arrange it's just me and my boy. I like the quiet though.

    A majority of the time i'm riding alone. I'm usually in the arena or out working my horse in one of the empty pastures. My barn is small and has very little boarder activity, so I don't get to ride with others usually. It is nice to get the place to myself, but it does get lonely now and then.

    9 times out of 10, I ride alone. The only exception is the first time I take a young horse out of the roundpen. For that, I like to have someone along until I can get a feel for how they are going to react to the big wide world.

    Most of the time I ride alone but I have to stay in our five acre property which is fenced. When we go out on trails my Dad rides with me. :)
