When on the trails, a water bottle, whistle, small first aid kit, map of area you are riding in. And yeah common sense and always letting someone know where your planing on riding an close estimate time for return!

Amazin and Cowchick, you guys are so crafty. Love it!

I'm one of the bad kids that doesn't bring anything to trail rides. I need to start bringing water bottles, cell phone, and a pocket knife at the very least! I'm not handy with a rope but it'd be a great thing to learn..

I know a lady who would pack really heavy duty wire cutters, because of a freak accident in barbed wire.. she was the observer and had to gallop a ways away to get help. The horse wasn't fine.. :/

I also always carry a bottle of water no matter what and a hoof pick. Actually I have two hoof picks. I also got a cantle bag for Christmas (purple - it is so pretty) and I was going to pack it with:

1. Hoof Boots
2. Little First Aid Kit
3. Desitin Ointment
4. Vet Wrap
5. Triple Ointment
6. Powder
7. Rain Pouch
8. Leather Latigo
9. Folding Saw (my friend got one at Lowe's and it really comes in handy!)
10. Horsey Treats

I have all of the above except the saw but until I got the cantle bag I didn't have anyway to carry it except if I took my big saddle bags and I didn't want to do that. I carry them in the summer to carry lots of drinks but that is way too much to haul around all the time!

I use a saddle horn bag that is just big enough to pack in water, knife, GPS, cell, hoof pick, etc.

QOS, I also carry what's listed above except the hoof boots. But they will be purchased the end of the month. I also inaddition to the folding saw, carry nippers for quick pruning along the trail.

And if riding alone, a bell on my saddle.

If your saddle isn't equipped with leather saddle strings you might wish to add some, even if they are attached to a small D ring under the conchos. They are strong and can fix a number of things - a tourniquet, repair a broken rein, etc.

Off subject, but when I have to catch cows I'll also take homemade piggin strings (even though I never use one), and hobbles. Also I make sure to have good wire cutters because somebody's fence usually has to get cut. And a varmint pistol.
