I guess it depends on how big a pack you take with you. I always take a lead rope that can double as a turniquet. I am thinking of adding a 6" piece of garden hose for snake bite. I wear a bandana around my neck and one in my pack for covering her eyes if we are in a predicament, general staunching of blood or making a sling. Think small and double duty on all things. I have a horsemans knife that never comes out of my saddle bag. Hubby carries a leatherman tool for wire cutting or tack breakage. I carry little towelettes of hand sanitizer. One of us always has water a gps and the cell phone.
