I haven't downloaded it yet but my friend who rides hundreds of miles of trails per year recommended Backcountry Navigator. It's only for Android phones. He is very experienced with GPS & now only uses BN. I don't know if it will do what you want but it's a great trail tracker.

Someone else on the Forum recommend "viewranger," and I have used it a couple of times and it seems to be pretty helpful. It is also free.

I used BackCountry Navigator on my Android before catching a handheld GPS at a great price on eBay. It worked great for me as long as my phone had a charge and gps signal.

I use geo tracker. It'd kinda wonky at first, and maps ehhhh, but seems spot on as far as distance and elevation.

Rider SOS is pretty good, or alternatively you could get the ID tags with your emergency details on for yourself and your horse if you become "separated". I use woofwear track my hack and people can track your rides but would literally have to keep watching you - I use it to map how far I've gone and find new routes
