Hehe sorry to correct but it's hypothermia. Hyperthermia is getting too hot :)

Anyway if I'm going on a short (couple hr) ride I carry water, knife, first aide kit, and snacks.
If I'm going on a longer or possible overnight trip I've got saddle bags packed of all sorts of goodies.
No matter how short a ride it's gonna be though I always tell someone I'm heading out and where and about how long i plan to be gone. I also leave a map at my house highlighting the exact trails I plan on taking. I live in sw mo with lots of hills and forests and my cell doesn't always work out here so always have a back up!

I keep a horn bag packed with the essentials and just leave it on my saddle at all times. I can't even remember exactly what all it has in it. I know it has my horses coggins, bailing twine, hoof pick, an extra lighter and urmmm....I think it is time I go have a look, huh?!

I have different saddle bags for the things I just want to take.

I think I will have to make me one of those small rolls of duct tape. I can sure see how that'd be handy.

Mobile phone
sharp knife
hip flask containing port or damson gin

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Rope...too many uses, from making reins to makeshift halters or hobbles moving objects,rescue,leading, the list goes on. I always use marine grade nylon, dont have to worry about getting it wet.(comes in tons of colors)
