DEFINITELY go with someone else! At least until you feel secure in your horsemanship skills and are familiar with the trail to go alone. If it is a well traveled area (lots of people go there), it's OK to ride solo (after YOU feel safe) but if it's in the boonies and hardly anyone goes there, ALWAYS go with someone.
I ride trail on a wildlife conservation plot, about 1200 acres. It is rare to see anyone else there, although I do know one or two others who ride there. It's right down the esides, it is always more fun to go with someone on a ride!
It's the little things that drive me wild...
