I bought a cool item that straps to your leg. It holds your cell, keys, flashlight (small one) and other very small items, such as a money and a map, etc. It's very handy to have that on me, and as you say, USANDPETS, not on the horse. I like the idea of my phone number on my horse. Thanks for that tip. Do any of you carry those easy-boot things? I know the trails I'll be on are mostly grass, but I wondered about it.
