Trail Bags- Cantle or Pommel?

I'm looking to purchase a bag for rides, and am not sure if I should get a cantle or pommel bag. Does anyone have a preference? I have tried both and don't really have a preference for reaching forward or back. Is there a difference for the horse?

Let me know what you prefer for your pony. Thanks!

Completely personal preference. If they fit properly, the horse doesn't even know they're there.

A pommel bag is easier to access but a cantle bag can hold more or larger items. I have a pommel bag that I always use. My wife has a cantle bag but it is hard to get into while moving. Trying to unzip and rezip when done especially one handed.

I personally prefer a pommel bag because I am not coordinated enough to deal with a cantle one while moving out on trail.

I don't use pommel bags, I tend to need an unclutered area to hang on, on occasion. I have a rear snug pack that combines a cantle bag with two drink holders, on the side I have a sponge bag on the on side. Off side is a easy boot bag, I put elytes and what not in the rear off side easy boot bag, If I am opening my cantle bag something has gone wrong. I pretty much just carry emergency supplies and snivel gear in it.

I have a personally preference toward cantle bags. More room for stuff; less clutter I have to look it. It just looks sleeker. My cantle bag has room for two water bottles (I believe I have the same model of Joe!), so that's very convenient. My horse doesn't even notice it's there.

I use both. Cantle bags to carry a lot of beer and pommel bags to carry mixed drinks and phone, copenhagen and personal cleansing wipes, just in case.

I have a stowaway pommel bag, but I'm going to get a cantle bag. I'm feeling like Joe, I don't want anything in my way when I need to grab a hank of mane to hang on.
