You could always get a small camera bag and attach it to the saddle.... though if the horse runs off then you are left without a phone lol. But that's what I used to do... I just used a little camera carrying case and hooked it to the D hook on the back of the saddle
LOL! I'm sorry that you feel, but I absolutely LOVED the story with all the photos!!! I'm so glad that both of you are fine. (and your phone is fine) Btw..he is soo super gorgeous!!! I hope Lyric is as beautiful as he is.
LOL About the phone! Went on a cattle drive in July, I rode my Fell, Harley. I was taking a pic of this GORGEOUS champagne walker in front of me with my phone, when Harley decided to take off BUCKING. Like you, my phone was of utter importance but also a hinderence for me trying to get him under control lol!!! The whole time I was thinking, don't drop the phone don't drop the phone lol!!! I didn't fall off luckily though, but was every so thankful I managed to keep a hold of my phone!!! LOL
