    Cell phone. If someone else has that, I bring the knife or wire cutters.

    Sorry Ridergirl23 but We have had bears attack 4 wheelers and horses around here, so yes they do chase and attack even if they have not been surprised.. Plus we are getting grizzlies from the park and they do what they want when they want it.

    that's strange, I've never heard of that, *most* bears (black, grizzlie, any bear) around here just look at you and walk away, or threaten you to leave, but rarely attack... its more cougars were scared of here! Lol.

    Some lipstick. Hey, if I'm dying on the trail, I might as well look good doing it. BIG JK!

    I would probably bring my phone. The place I trail ride gets pretty good recption, and there are lots of little streams to drink out of if I needed to (not that they are the most sanitary of water sources, but they are clean enough)

    I vote for a knife as well. Most places I ride, a cell phone only takes up space because I don't have service anyway. Water is fairly easy to find because you can ride for a mile in any direction and find at least 3 windmills. Fortunately, we don't have many predators around here and what we do have wouldn't go for something as big as a horse (especially with the smell of human mingled with it).

    I'm not sure about in the mountainous trails, but around here where I do live we have coyotes, and it's funny because I have scared a couple of them up and away on my jaunts around the neighborhood...Lol!!! Guess horses are just a bit too big for their taste! Now some of the dogs in the neighborhood...*shudders* I would not want them to get out of their runs...

    That's what we have too is mostly coyotes. Every once in a great while, I luck out and see a mountain lion or a bobcat but there are so few of them I haven't seen either one in years. Plus, we are overrun with deer so they wouldn't need to go after a horse.
