FW: [RC] saddle bags thanks jt - Mike Sherrell

The water's far the heaviest thing to carry. The rest of it has to do with where and how you ride. Binoculars are the 2nd heaviest in my kit, but I want them mostly to figure out where I will go and where I maybe better not go. I would say the Neosporin salve is the single most important thing in the kit, although it is featherweight. My horse has got barbed wire ankle cuts at mid day 10 miles from the trailer and 70 miles from home and I did not want to wait 5 hours to doctor him, and it's been handy for me too. If you and your horse never want bug repellant you never ride in a lot of places.

jt (with a pack containing a couple of waterbottles, a granola bar, a  
hoof pick, and (sometimes) a pocket knife.)

THANK YOU!!! I was starting to feel mighty embarrassed about my "lack" of stuff in my saddle packs.:-) I pack ................Water.....................and maybe a hoofpick or leatherman tool if I have not taken it out at home and forgotten  to replace it for a year or so...:-) and GUM!!! With gum you don't get hungry or thirsty so much, and it gives you something to do when you get bored after a couple of hours.:-) :-) And sometimes a lighter in case I have to spend the night outside lost, however it is usually all jammed up with gum so am not sure it would actually work!!:-) ;-)
