Saddle Bags??

I have been trying to find saddle bags online because the ones at the tack store are way too expensive. I am looking for blue/navy, need to be able to hold drink bottle, cell, keys, small snack, first aid kit?, easy boots(necessary?)??. I don't know exactly what I am looking for as far as good material and whether or not I should get the horn bag or the cantel ones. I don't want like a huge bag that will be flopping around if we canter or trot. Here is what I am looking at so far:

Used horse tack blue horn bag w/ bottles barrel saddle - eBay (item 120396948116 end time Mar-31-09 14:40:06 PDT)

Horse Horn Bags/ Pommel Trail Max Jr Blue Insulated - eBay (item 280328526106 end time Apr-29-09 05:07:47 PDT)

Hi, I found my saddle bag through Country Supply. Actually got the set, horn bag, cantle bag and saddlebag. Not expensive and available in many colors. You can get the insulated bag to insert if you want. Also have the separate water bottle holder you can get or even a day trip saddle bag with 2 water bottle holders.

Never had a problem with the cantle bag flopping around, as I carry my trail grooming tools with me at all times. I also make sure to securely tie my saddle bag when I use it on weekends, no problems.

Here's their site. Hope it helps.

You can have my saddle bags Joshie

Back to the topic....
These were my first saddle (horn) bags Pro-Craft Day Trip Saddle Bag - Horse.com
I liked them because you could seperate them and just take the water bottles if you wanted. For short rides I would just take one water bottle and stick my camera and a pack of smokes in the other (back when I still smoked).
I have a set I paid more for now (cause their pink ) that have Velcro flaps that close down and a separate water bottle holder. They are made by Weaver. I'm not sure I like them that much because I use rope reins and they catch on the Velcro all the time. Zippers are a pain to open and close Velcro is easy, so I guess its a personal thing whether you go for the velcro or the zipper types.
I do like the separate water bottle that just clips on. Its much easier if your going on a short ride to just take it.
I have found, for really long rides on hot days, I take my single water bottle holder on my saddle and I bought a day waist pack with 2 water bottles on it at walmart. That way if I lose my horse I have my water, GPS, cell and whatever else I need on my person, not on my headed for the trailer horse.
I just think its better to have that stuff on your person. A small horn bag is great for your camera or stuff you won't need if you get separated from your horse or for short rides.
Tony likes a cantle bag but he carries lunch, I carry the water, camera and GPS

This is like the one I have that one is on campmor.com runs $19.95 and comes in lots of colors.

Personally, I LOVE stow-a-way saddle bags. I have a set of black fronts for my english saddle.

Comming form an endurance rider, these are great!

The outer material is completly water proof

They come in multiple colours, including Navy :]

The fronts are univirsal, for eng/west. The backs are great. Im thinking of getting a set myself.

They average at about $50 (US) at your local tack shop.
