I put mine in my pocket, my jeans are usually snug enough I don't worry about it falling out lol! If I'm riding in breeches, I just sit it on one of the arena posts by the gate.

I've thought about ordering this case though, it's pretty cute.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I have to say, cakemom, that I'm jealous. :p
My phone's too wide/tall and will NOT stay in place. ;;
It sucks having a "built-in pocket" that seems to be faulty at actually holding things, lol.

If I don't have jeans pockets to put it in, I'll wear a vest and put it in my vest pocket.

I usually keep mine in a vest pocket - mines a BlackBerry so I only ride with it on the trails, never arena work.
It also has a protective case, which will help protect it in case of a fall.

I also always tell people where I'm going and the times I'll be back - just in case. Though, I've never had to use my phone for any reason. The day I need it, I won't have it.

Sir Success. Eventer.

While I was taking riding lessons, the barn I rode at was close to state preserve lands that didn't require trailering to ride on. I always rode with a buddy on Gypsy, the saintly little Mustang pony I borrowed for lessoning. I always put my phone on vibrate and left it in my front pocket of my britches - the pockets on my britches had zippers. Now I just leave my phone on silent in my back pocket (I've converted to wearing jeans haha). I've never had an issue with losing my phone (well, I have but that wasn't horse related...) Once it gets cool enough to wear a sweatshirt here, I usually tuck it in a pocket of that :)

Either my bra or my pocket, but I still let people know where I'm going to be and for how long.

I also want to say, that I rarely give a time I'll be back from a solo trail ride. I don't figure out which trails I'm going on until I get to the point of choosing to continue on the main trail or go on another. I normally tell my mum that if she calls 5 times and I don't answe to wait another 10 to call again, and if I still don't answer to send someone out for me. I'll go down the trail chatting on my phone with someone if it's important if I'm on Lucky, but I'll stop Fancy and talk if I'm on her. I trust her to stand like a rock if something happens, but I don't trust her not to fly sideways or take off down the trail if something happens while she's moving.

If you do tell someone how long you'll be out, add 10 minutes or so onto how long you plan to take, or have them call you before they come out to search for you. Or call them before the time you're suppose to be back and let them know the change in plans an however much longer you're going to take. I know I get paranoid that something happened if someone isn't 5 minutes early or exactly on time, and I'd rather not be freaking out throwing tack on my horse to frantically run out to the trails only to find out they walked a little slower and took an extra 20 minutes without telling me, ya know?

If I put my cell phone in my bra, people would wonder why one boob is bigger than the other! LOL.
I have a kind of "pocket belt". Room for a cell phone and a few other tiny things if I wanted to. Usually the "other tiny things" are horsey treats.
