    Smile What to do with my phone while taking lesson?

    This is kind of a random question, but I have recently started taking lessons again after not having them since I was a lot younger. I am wondering what I should do with my phone wile riding (as I do not want it in my pocket because I'm worried about it getting in the way or being damaged should I fall). So far, I have just been leaving it in the car, but with summer coming I'm concerned about the heat. Any ideas? What do you do? Thanks in advance!

    Depending on your trainer you can ask him/her to hold it. I have my trainer hold mine because there's only like 3 people in my lesson (so a ton of people won't be asking for her to hold phones) and we're very close (known her for year and years)

    I always set mine on a barrel off in a corner or along the rail. I make sure the screen is faced down though so the heat doesn't get it if outdoor, I also have an otterbox on it.

    Could you leave it in that horse's tack locker?

    I live mine in the tack box, or in my training bag. If I ride alone I keep it in the inner pocket of my vest.

    I put mine in my helmet bag and either hang it on a hook on the stall or put in the tack box, depending on the horse I'm riding.

    Thanks guys! Those are some great ideas, but unfortunately this isn't a barn where each horse has their own stall or tack trunk. I guess the best thing to do might be just to ask her if there is a good post to leave my phone (unless anyone has any other ideas). It's not really that big of a deal, it just seems weird to say "where can I put my phone?" lol

    That is one of the reasons I kept my ancient clamshell phone; becuaseit is small enough I can put it in my bra. I wrap it in a tissue to keep my sweat from damaging it, and put it between the girls for safekeeping.

    Do you have a purse or bag of any sort that you take with you to lessons? If so, I would put it in there and either hang it on a hook that you won't run off and forget about or lay it on the ground somewhere out of the way where it won't get stepped on.

    If you don't have a bag, it might be a good idea to get one, that way you can carry your phone, a bottle of water, and maybe a snack (or treats for your horse ).

    The horses at my barn don't have their own stalls either. I just pick a stall and hang it there. At the barn I used to work at I'd leave my phone on a shelf in the feed room. Sometimes I would leave it in the brush box. I would just go ahead and ask your instructor where a good place to put it is. I'm sure it won't be the first time someone has asked!
