I love it too! Its great to just have something to wipe your sweat off on or to dry your hands with if nothing is available. I started wearing one to the barn to keep my hair back and discovered just how many uses it can actually have.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

If you are not sure how long you will be you can throw in a small flashlight. I am definitely making a list of this and posting it in my barn!

Horses are scared of two things. Things that move and things that don't

Carry a gun and know how to use it. Also practice firing off your horse.

Forget flashlights, get one of the small LED lights that you wear on a headband.

Be careful with taking a gun, they are illegal in most state and federal parks (except during hunting season, and then only if you have a hunting license), and will get you a huge fine and your weapon confiscated if seen.

Live well, laugh often, love deeply...An' it harm none.

That's where the handgun carry permit comes in.

Carry in National Parks is now subject to state handgun laws.

Handgunlaw.us

Only Illinois and DC don't have some sort of carry permits and most states have reciprocal agreements with other states.

Pay the tax, get your second amendment rights. Funny, if we did the same thing to vote they'd call it a poll tax.

Also check the different obscure laws.
In our state we are allowed to carry while on a "journey". That means anywhere that is not on your usual beaten path. Like trail blazin!!
