I have an old clam shell type phone that tends to be smaller and easier to fit in my zippered pocket in my jacket,vest or breeches. I have occasionally stuffed it on the outside of my half chaps. Thankfully, I have never broke it.

I generally suffer the same problem with Saskia, I very seldom have a signal in the areas where I ride. Though I still take my phone with me whenever I'm riding a colt and I carry it in my shirt pocket. I wear men's western shirts so I've always got the pocket over my left boob and that's where my phone stays.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I carry mine in a small camera case in my back pocket. I hook the string to the case through my belt loop in case it comes out of my pocket.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

That is actually a good idea. THe camera case I use has a belt loop thing and a hook. So I could do both things just in case. hmm only probably is that I wear riding tights and they dont have belt loops, welp guess I have to go buy some new riding pants OH darn!

Your horse is an extension of you.

I usually just stick mine in the pocket of my breeches. Or if I'm wearing a jacket it goes in the inside pocket.

That's where I carry mine when my husband and I are out on our motorcycle. And, when we're doing fun runs/poker runs. I keep the folded map there.. I call it my "map holder"

I've been keeping my phone in my saddle bags, obviously I wasn't thinking about what would happen if I were thrown! Guess it'll start going in my "map holder"

Depending on what I am wearing, my cell phone either ends up in my breeches pocket, my coat pocket or my saddle bag. I NEVER ride alone though (I don't have a trailer) so IF I was to fall off and my horse to run off, my friend always has her phone too. I used to keep in my bra when I had a small phone, but now I have a Droid and it doesn't fit right...

Funnily enough, I get better reception in the woods where I ride than at my house half the time.

Oh, and I don't have it when I am riding in the arena. I leave it in the house unless nobody is home. I don't want people bugging me while I'm riding and I'm too much of a phone addict... However, Gypsy is at my house and I always tell somebody when I am going to ride (more to make sure nobody is going to let the dog out loose while I'm riding than anything though).

I used to carry mine in my front pocket until I came off one time and fractured the screen. Now I carry my iphone in a hard case attached to my belt and towards the front. If I come off, there is little chance that it will get damaged (I hope).

I would rather take the chance that it will break then have a problem miles from the trail head where it's possible not to be found for a long time - or a long walk back to the trailer. I think it's useless to have it attached to my saddle. I trust my horse but you just never know.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
