DH and I use these (in the correct colors, of course ) :

I don't think they would work for the bigger types of smart phone though, as my iphone is a fairly snug fit.

Glad to see people are getting out to ride. I had been hoping to ride tomorrow, but the weather is looking to be less than agreeable.. so over winter already.

Dawn, the one I bought is 8" so it holds this Galaxy Note 3 - LOL it is like have a freaking tablet computer stuck on your ear.

I went out to see my horses today and pass out carrots and treats. It is supposed to be 24 tomorrow morning with a real feel of 8. Ugh.....I will go out and check on the horses in the morning.

We had wanted to ride today but it was raining this morning. Later the sun came out a little bit but the wind was blowing and it was chilly with a real feel of 35

Hoping everyone stays safe tomorrow - hoping to ride this weekend at the beach.

I use one too, though I don't know that I'd call it a fanny pack. For one thing, I keep the pouch either in front of me, or over my right hip. I generally carry wallet & camera in it (no cell service most places we ride), with water, jacket, snacks in a cantle bag.

Some of you might consider using a gun shoulder holster. Most of them have enough room for a decent size phone and with the snap over will keep the phone secured. I have one I got with a SS Christmas gift and that is the plan I have for it with my Samsung Rugby 2 smart phone.

LOL I have a picture of me two years ago when we were on a training ride up at Ebenezer. OMG it was hilarious. I had riding pants on which certainly weren't anywhere near flattering, a Magellan shirt with a bazillion pockets, my helmet with the camera on it, Ariat hiking boots, a water container strap with three water bottles, one on each hip and one on the back and a heart monitor on my wrist. OMG I looked like a goober - Biscuit thought I looked like a goober - and I smelled funny from slathering on zinc ointment.

It was just Lee Ann P and I on this particular ride and we were talking about perhaps coming across unsavory types out in the woods where there was a spot that looks like someone has been cooking crack (not exaggerating) . I told Lee-Ann that if some guy got a whiff of us he would turn tail and run and I would be hollering "come on buddy - come on and get you some of this" We were hysterically laughing because NO ONE in his right mind would have came anywhere near us smelling of that stuff!

Some people look so cute when they ride - I always look like the pits

After battling the flu over the beginning of the New Year, I was finally able to get out and ride over the weekend.

Did a 7 mile road loop with Amira on Saturday and a 4 mile loop on Sunday.

Also ponied Maverick off of her for the first time on Saturday and then again on Sunday on a short jaunt through the woods. Here she is with her "little brother" after our ride, she did great, but seemed less than amused by his 8 month old antics.

Haha thanks! This past weekend was relatively "warm", by which I mean it was above 30F and the sun was out. Unfortunately we're now bracing for -30F and 3 feet of snow. Ah winter, we have a love/hate relationship.

EnduranceLover, You really caught that winter sky just right in that last picture!
