I agree with most of the advice, but I, personally, would not get off and walk when my horse gets antsy and I'm not sure if there's a reason or not. On the off chance there's a bear, I'd rather be on my horse than lose it when it runs from the bear. One, it makes you bigger than the bear, and two, running makes you prey. Not that I've ever come across anything more frightening than a deer, lol. I also know when my horse is acting up because she's being a dingbat, which is every time she acts up.
I bring my iPhone, let it play out the speaker, and sing along to that. It makes noise so I don't get antsy at the sound of a falling leaf, but I also don't have headphones in so I can hear anything actually worth hearing. I can stick my phone in my bra so it's easy to hear and won't get lost, lol.
