I just keep mine in my front pocket. If I get dumbed somehow, I don't plan on falling flat on my face/stomach/crotch/front thighs. If I come off, I'm either landing on my feet, rolling up and going wherever, or falling on my back correctly and hoping I can execute that like I was taught in TKD.
I don't worry myself about falling off at all though, because if I'm going on a trail ride with a horse I might come off, I'm going to bring someone else along with a trail-sane horse. I refused to go on a solo trail with Fancy because I haven't ridden her enough to know that (in my mind) she's a safe trail mount. I will -gladly- take Lucky alone for a trail ride (phone or not) because she knows the trails I ride on, as do I. Of course I tell BO or my mum that I'll be out and about in the trails (we have a map, even though we need to add the new trails Drew and I made before he left). I'm never sure which trail I'll end up taking, but I don't normally bush-whack if I can avoid it. If I'm going out to find/make/clean-up some trails, I'll let BO know, and I'll have a lead with me for when I get off to get lower brush.
I trust Lucky to take me through the trails (and off trail) safely because she's been trained as a nice trail horse, in these woods. If I lose my horse, I know that I have the abilities to get myself back to the barn or a house on the opposite side of the woods safely.
I normally bring my switch blade (aside from now while it's broken..) in my back pocket, a lighter in my back pocket, my cell phone in my right front pocket, and anything else I might need in my free left front pocket. If I carry anything on my saddle/horse, it's a drink. There's normally not a need for me to bring a drink though, because I'm fine with going anywhere from 1-8 hours without a drink.
