Okay, I have to admit that I am one of the least safety conscious equestrians that I know.

Although I wear a helmet, I usually ride alone and rarely tell anyone when or where I am riding. Sure, I am riding at the farm, but in which fields and trails, no one knows. To be fair, sometimes I don't know which way I want to go until I get there.

I prefer to leave my cell phone on my tack trunk in the barn when I go out riding.

I have also left my cell phone in my sweatshirt pocket and lost it on more than one trail ride, riding back later to find it.

Last week, I finally invested in one of those cell phone holders that riders wear on their arms or legs. They are not expensive (I paid $7 for mine), I just had not gotten around to it.

I used it for the first time last Friday, wearing it on my left arm. Honestly, the only thing I could think of the whole time I was riding was that someone had put the blood pressure cuff at the doctor's office too high on my arm.

Hopefully, I get used to the feeling of wearing it!

  1. I've found a few things that work for me with cell phones. I have a clip back holder, & clip it to my tall boot when I wear those. When not, I clip it to my waistline in the middle of my back. Still on, but not irritating! :)
