    Thanks everyone.

    I would love to ride alone. I'm just going to do it and let them complain. LOL My horse is easy going and walks S L O W. LOL He's always the last one to the barn for dinner. My hubby is home but in a wheelchair so if something happens, he can at least call someone.

    I don't want to run. I just want to walk and get to know my horse and he me. I've only had him about 2 months and only ridden him twice.

    I always ride with my friend, but it's more in case of accident for her (non-riding husband didn't like her riding alone, which is basically how I got started riding), plus she keeps my horse & owns the trailer.

    I prefer to ride alone especially at the farm. That is my downtime. After talking to people all day about their problems spending time alone with my horse is a treat.
    I do not carry a cell phone but maybe I should. Heck I forget to bring it to work most of the time.
    Since I like to let my horses pick their own pace and most of them love to gallop riding with others is not that enjoyable for me.
    Not that I havent had good times riding with others but I like to go wherever the trail leads or how fast the horse wants to go. Riding with others that only like to walk and trot just isnt the same. Shalom

    I always ride alone. I enjoy it! No distractions, just me and my horse :)

    I'm kinda a loner and would love to ride alone most of the time. My family just has to get past the fear that I'm going to get hurt. I'm not a sissy type of lady and I'm glad they worry about me but they need to get over it. LOL

    I like riding alone, but don't turn down good company. When alone, I can work with my horse more or just enjoy whatever whim comes into my mind, but company is also good - it's a little safer and it also provides good training opportunities for young, herdbound, buddy sore, rushing, etc. horses.

    OP I do not know how well you ride or how well your horse is trained. Until you have more experience with your horse I would try and ride close to the barn or with someone.
    Only owning him for 2 months and riding him only twice doesnt give you enough time to know your horse.
    Every horse has the potential to buck and bolt no matter how slow they walk most of the time.
    Your safety is priority number one. Shalom
