On-Trail First-Aid Kit


Here’s what to take on the trail. The sad­dle­bag items should travel with you on the ride, in a sad­dle­bag or pom­mel bag, or tied to your sad­dle.

Of course, you’ll don the rider ap­parel be­fore your ride, ty­ing your rain slicker to the back of your sad­dle.

Im­por­tant! Keep the rider safety/com­fort items on your body, in a fanny pack and/or an­kle pack, in case you be­come sep­a­rated from your horse.
