I answer calls and texts while Romeo and I are in the arena, but not on the trail because he is crazy on trails lol.

If your horse has a freak at a phone going off then you definitely need schooling if that scares them how will you go in a show with a taanoy and noise constantly???

During a lesson or training session - no.

Hanging out and riding - Not really any different than hanging out with friends and they call or text at the same time.

I never answer a call on horse back, there's so many external factors when your riding I don't fancy adding another 1. I do however carry my phone in a strap on my arm when out hacking, in the school my phone is left on the side of the school.
I do carry a mobile on horse back and also some change as well, its all safety reasons for me tho.

Hmmmm I agree with everyone saying why would you want to...but on top of that it depends where you are riding.

If you are on the road or nature strip (here in Austrlia) for instance, you are classified as a vehicle. As is the case with all other vehicles, the complete set of road rules apply, including not being able to use your mobile phone without a handsfree device. If you are caught, you will be fined however (obviously) not lose any demerit points.

Theres my random fact for the day!! :) Happy Easter all!

In my opinion, if you are on a horse to ride, then RIDE!!!
But I say this as a hypocrit. I have ridden and texted before. Not to make excuses for it, but I was in a closed indoor arena and I steered my horse to the middle of the arena and stopped her before I started texting. And no; I wouldn't reccomend a person to text and ride for safety reasons.

As for phone calls, ehhh...I think they are in a little different ball game. It only takes one hand to talk on the phone, and you also have your visibility when talking (unlike when you are staring at the keys when texting.) I still wouldn't reccomend it, because you don't have your full attention of the horse, but if you must use your phone, I believe talking is the safer option of the two.
