Two years ago, me, my mom, and a couple friends went on a girls only trail ride for a weekend. That year I took my mare Ginger-- she did fantastic!
Mom is planning another trip for sometime this year, and instead of Ginger, I want to take my new horse Mellow. Ginger is my Western horse, and Mellow is my English horse. I'm planning on doing the trail ride with my English saddle, but my problem comes down to packing. Last time I used a saddle bag that goes over the horn of my saddle, but I obviously won't have a horn with this saddle. What options are there for English riders who need to carry bottles of water and a small lunch with them on the trail? I was thinking about a back pack, but I wondered what others had done.
