No bra to carry stuff so I use my pommel bags I try to keep a few thing that can help me spend an unplanned night on the trail should the ride get interesting.

Tiny flashlight, garbage bag, etc. Here's the list of all 14 handy items.

My saddlebags got lost in the move, so now I carry everything in my purse...

Seriously I don't care what I look like anymore!

This one has clips I attach to my belt loops, with the strap, it never bounces! Water, two knives (one thin needle and one large serrated), pads, duct tape, phone, turkey sandwiches, nylon string, flash light, gun, steripen, spare screws, and a poncho.
The strap clips on and is long enough to use as spare reins, it's strong duct canvas in case I need to cut and wrap/patch, has strong spare welded rings I can cut off in case I need to make a light wench/pulley, and it's always attached to me.

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

thanks everybody for sharing your ideas of what to take out with you.. I have still to get d-rings attached to my saddle if I can , I have little clip on bag for it.. but maybe I could use the over shoulder idea for a bag if I can't get that sorted.

i am fed up with the speed and the greed of the world around me but i have not found nor can i offer a cure

Wow not alot of people take TP lol. I take water, TP, hoof pick, chap stick, lighter, first aid kit, and a knife in my saddle bags and on me I have my phone. I do wish they made bigger saddle bags for english saddles though.
