i have a saddle blanket with two large pockets in it for riding out. i take a fold up hoof pick, mobile (cell) phone, digi camera, bottle of water, smokes (i know i know, naughty :)), i also take a chap stick and treats (for me and the horse). i leave the halter on with the lead rope fashioned in a way that doesnt let it get in the way. then we're set to go :)

I am sort of bad about not taking much along...though I am getting better since competitive trail riding. I have been dinged by the judges for carrying a hoofpick between my rider buddy and myself with the statement "what happens if you get separated"?

These days, I think the most important thing to bring along is my cell phone!! When Dez cut his pasturn on a culvurt...i caled home, and had a trailer there to pick us up in about 20 minutes :)...of course that only works when on the roads.

I finally got sime better saddle bags, so when I plan ahead, I take: cell, water, hoof pick, baling twine, gum, carrots, snacks, camera. (I like to enjoy my rides a little much :))

I guess I should have put what my husband rides with too since we are always together. He carries the cell phone I carry the water. If we pack out for the day, he carries lunch and a blanket to sit on, I carry all the electronics, GPS and camera.
