I am deathly allergic. When I was a teen I jumped on bareback in cutoffs and rode for a whole day... She had rolled in it. My legs were swollen stiff for TWO WEEKS.
And then on a camping trip I somehow got it, probably was growing next to the leaf I used... I laughed about it weeks later to my friends and they bought me that shirt
When I get in from riding or pretty much doing anything outside I grab a bar of lye soap and scrub down. I've gotten poison ivy in January.

I also carry a couple lighters, matches in a waterproof case, and A PACK OF TISSUES!!! Headlamps too, I can't tell you how many times we've been caught out hiking and had to use our phones for lights. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

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

Mostly I just use a little leather fanny pack to keep a few goodies in. In it there is some baling twine, some fishing gear an extra lighter, waterproofed matches, a map of the snowmobile trails in the immediate area. My phone and a water bottle is generally in there too and my leatherman.

If I'm going for the rare long ride I have bigger bags I can put lunch and a sweatshirt in. Even a small tent if I really lost my mind. But I like that warm bed and shower thing.

I'm not much of a fisherman but I can catch food with it should the horse and I become separated. I can either fish or fashion a snare. Can make a fire for warmth or signaling help. Baling twine has loads of uses. I'm also a bit of a plant geek so I'm aware of the edibles out there.

I always have my fanny pack on me. In that I carry cell phone, small can of bug spray a bandana, a whistle, leatherman tool, lighter and parachute cord. My husband suggested I carry the pistol but, I told him if I ever needed that the horse would be leaving me in mid air and when I hit the ground the bad thing would get me anyway. Usually I have a bottle of water in there too with one in the saddle bag and treats for the horse. Think I will add some duct tape for the next ride.

I have only gone on day rides - but I usually carry jerky, apples for me and my horse, gloves, band aids, medical things for my horse, extra leadrope, treats, cell phone, hobbles (my horse loves to paw when I eat my food.) and of course water.

Right now that is all I can think of. I usually just put them into small ziplocks and organize them in my saddle bags so I know where to find everything.
