If your saddle has little tie downs on it (sorry don't know what to call them... but like like d rings) then just attach string and tie saddle bags to the back, is what I do.

This pad has pockets. If I had seen one of these, I might have never bought a western saddle.

I love my Stowaway saddle packs - they make them for all types of saddles. I have a cantle bag, but wish I had a pommel bag because it's a pain to ben around backward for everything!

I have a couple of the Stowaway bags, too. . .they have all different styles, including ones with built in water bottle holders, and a TON of pockets.

Check out longridersgear.com - they cater to a lot of endurance riders who use English-style saddles, so they could advise you on what packs would work best for you.

I ride with a small fanny pack. I don't carry a lot of stuff but this keeps emergency items on me just in case of a "ground landing"...ID, med card, emergency locator, leatherman, leather shoelace, tissue, energy bar, small amount of vetwrap and a tiny sanitary pad for a bandage. And I always have a whistle and compass on a cord as a necklace.

I don't know what kind of leatherman you're talking about, but it made me think of this. (I hope someone else watched old SNL so I don't look stupid.)

: ) Sunny...a Leatherman is a multipurpose tool (with more gadgets attached than a Swiss Army Knife). It folds up into a relatively small contained form so it is easily carried for just about any emergency other than brain surgery...and it might work for that if need be.
