I'm just wandering what kind of equipment people take out with them on new trails so they don't get lost, or if they get hurt what kind of equipment do they have? When I go out on an unfamiliar trail I usually try to take a Garmin gps, I have a gps on my phone and I usually try to get a trail map online or some type of map (I.E. Topo map) I can use in case I get lost. I also keep a first aid kit with a stretcher in the trailer tack room.
I believe that there are already several stickys on this subject. But, since you asked
I take a map - I get mine here
A compass (helps to know how to use the two together)
Cell phone - Turned off and on me, not my horse
1st aid kit
Various other odds and ends as the weather dictates.
