What should I do with my horse who doesn't want to be ridden alone?

Try going on trail rides with friends, should improve his confidence in the ring too!
I've had this problem with my sister's mare. We went walking with her by feet near to the stables and we rewarded her, and every day we were going farer and farer, and one day that problem disappeared!
You should go with an other horse :) If he doesn't want to go alone, just have a look on your relationship, because he's not alone as he's with you :) And some of them prefer being with an other horse, that's it!
