    I feel lucky I don't have to worry about encountering bears and mountain lions... I only have to worry about morons leaning out of their cars hollering "Hey baby, save a horse ride a cowboy" and other such stupid things. So yeah, if it were legal, I'd be voting for that pistol
    Since it's not I take my phone with me in case something happens. If I didn't take my phone, I think a multi tool could prove useful given a bad situation.

    My horn bag... Because it contains a first aid kit, knife, hoof pick, and other emergency things. It also has a nifty little velcro holder for my phone =D

    Water. I wouldn't want to be desperate enough to drink out of the stock tanks. All kinds of gross creepy crawly things in there. Like these things that look like miniature horseshoe crabs with long rat-like tails. Yuck!

    I would guess a lighter or matches would also be good, just in case it's winter and I get lost. And a GPS to hopefully prevent that from happening.

    I don't worry much about the wildlife. I saw my first bear this year, and it was when we were still in the truck. Never saw a cougar, although my neighbors have. I worry more about the two-legged predators, but I don't carry a gun, just a pocket knife.

    Maybe it's a false sense of security, but I feel very safe on a horse. They are an extra set of eyes to spot humans and animals. And if I do need to get away in a hurry, it will be a lot quicker on horseback than on foot. I guess that sums it up. I feel safer on horseback than on foot.

    Cell phone just in case, definitely!

    Ditto on the horn bag, but I carry my phone in a holster on my belt because I always figured if my horse and I get seperated that would be a good time to use it. I've been able to teach my horse a lot of things...but dialing 911 isn't one of them!
