I either bring it with me and set it on the bleachers while I ride, or I just leave it in the barn. I board where I take lessons, though, so there is the added benefit of having a tack room pretty much all to myself. :) Posted via Mobile Device
I mainly ride alone, so I like to keep my phone with me at all times just in case. I have an iphone, and I use a GoVelope phone case attached to my breeches' belt loops. It's waterproof and super durable so I don't worry about it getting water/dirt/etc.. on it and my phone is totally protected from my horse rubbing on me or from me dropping it.
I keep mine in the car in the pocket on the side of the door. It's hidden from the sun so no worries about it overheating. Find a shady spot in your car, the pocket behind the front seat, inside the glove compartment, etc.
I just switched my lesson barn - during lessons I plan to leave it in the tack room or locked in the car, unless I want my trainer to take pics :) When I trail ride alone I have it in a fanny pack if it's hot, in a vest or coat pocket when it's cooler.
Lets see, if the weather is okay, I leave it in my car. If not, I'll have my trainer hold it, and if im riding alone I have a pair of AWESOME breeches that have a super deep pocket with a zipper on the left side, and I will put it in there. If I am wearing a vest, I'll put it in one of those pockets. OR I will leave it with my grooming stuff. Mostly I have been keeping it in my car though, mostly because Im riding at 5-7pm and its not that hot anymore.
I give it to my dad or mom to hold for me, but whenever I'm old enough to drive myself there, I think I'll leave it in the tack room or just somewhere in the barn.
If you really want to have it when you ride, I'd say stick it in your jacket pocket and zip it up, or in the pocket of your vest or something.
I always stick my phone down in my boot. I used to keep in my back pocket, but after mamy times of multipletrail rides, one enjoyable and one to findy lost phone afterward, I started using my boot instead. Posted via Mobile Device
