I ride alone for a couple of reasons. One I have only one horse lol. And two im the only one that rides in my family. Plus I don't live isaloted. We have neighbors very close. Its kind of nice, and not nice but I like it.
I just ride in my yard. She has her space for her pasture, and riding areana, a riding barn, and a barn for her to go in.
Plus someone lets me go into there field, and other places. So I have lots of places to go into. I have never been on a trail lol. We don't really have any. But they are putting one in for bikes, and walkers lol I will use that!
I don't feel safe with my horse at all right now. She doesnt listen so I need to do some ground work in the pen.

I know how you feel :( Vida is the first horse I feel comfortable leaving the pasture or round pen without another horse with us. We have 4 horses so I'm pretty lucky she never gets herd bound.

I occassionally ride alone. But with 4 horses needing exercise, I try to fill the saddles if I can. If my daughter don't want to come, then I get a neighbor or friend. Not because I'm afraid to ride alone, but because I need to exercise all 4 horses.

Often in the fall for hunting season, I often ride into camp by myself. Sometimes my friends have arrived earlier than I and sometimes they come a day or two later. And we of course usually split up and hunt by ourselves during the day, So I am riding by myself a lot during the hunt. So it's good to ride alone during the summer to teach the horses that it's OK to be alone and not be herd bound.

Yeap almost always. I have riden with others pleanty aswell. But my horse was one to get over excited with other horses so it was tecnically easier to ride on my own, that and in my town I was very limited as far as decent people to ride with goes.

I usually end up riding alone.
I bring my cell with my, just in case and usually let someone know where I'm going.

I actually really LOVE riding alone though.
There's no one to bother me. Just me and my mare. Everythings so quiet and relaxing.

The world is best viewed through the ears of a horse.

Yes, I do. The reason is it's nearly impossible to schedule something with other people (I work till late on weekdays, and most people are busy on weekends). I wish to ride with someone (and occasionally I do), but it's just too tough to manage... :(

I typically ride alone, usually because most others I know don't like riding along the roads or don't feel their horses are road safe.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
