Just my opinion...
I don't think a person should ride alone if they are inexperienced and are lacking in first aid knowledge. I think a horse should go out several times with a quiet, experienced trail horse to give both you and the horse exposure. How your horse acts in the riding space at home may not be the same way he acts on the trail, and that's something you should know about your horse. You also should know how to deal with injuries because its very easy to get hurt, not know what to do and make it worse by doing nothing or the wrong thing.
Personally, I usually ride alone. I don't enjoy company most of the time and my horse turns into a lunatic with others around.
It's fine to trail ride alone as long as you're careful.
