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.
