I am sometimes at the barn alone. I will do everything on the ground and ride my 4 yr old OTTB when I am alone, but will not ride a 13 yr old Arab I take care of while alone. There are still risks riding my OTTB alone, but I just started riding the Arab (twice now) and he hasn't been ridden in months... if not a year. He is super opinionated, rude, and has many vices. He spooks nasty, and we have experienced a fair share of crowhopping, bucking, and kicking out within our mere two rides thus far. I, by far, trust my OTTB more.
I have my cell on me all the time at the barn, unless I am riding.
