Earbuds can be hazardous. Not only can they block out noise (well, certainly not the ipod ones but anyways), but the string can get tangled. I know a rider who just puts the volume on full on her phone/ipod/mysterious piece of technology and it gives her about an 8 foot bubble of music, like a quiet portable speaker which she riders with. Some people do ride better with music and I think this is a safer alternative than ear buds. I am personally old fashioned, I only will use a stereo in the arena/barn or no music at all.

I've done it but I don't use the earphones that go into the ear canal I use the ones that just cover the entrance because I've found I can hear better, I only ride in one and I don't have it turned up loud so I can still hear and I'm vigilant when wearing earphones.

Lis- Haha I'm with the pony about Poker Face, I can't stand that song D;

HorsePride- For the trail again there are the ideas of bringing small portable speakers to carry on your person or in a saddlebag, or even like roro said using the headphones on full volume similarly but not wearing them (though I would think that would blow them out!)

When I bring my iPod on the trail with me, I put just one earbud in my ear. I put my iPod in my front pocket and I run the cord down through my shirt. That way I can still hear everything around me and the cord can't get tangled.
