I hadn't considered them as a deterrent from human issues, only in the sense
of trail accidents. They are a great tool for use as long as you are in an
area with reception. I ALWAYS carry my cellphone with me -- any kind of
disaster can happen when you're riding alone and it gives a feeling of some
Of course, you've gotta think about how to carry it -- not on the horse,
after all, if the horse dumps you and bolts -- you can't very well ask him
to call for help (the number pads on the cellphones are just a bit small for
their hooves to tap correctly).... I carry mine on a belt clip -- then of
course you worry that that's the side you'll land on and smash it........
....and like Marianne, the phone ALWAYS rings when I'm riding. Doesn't
bother either of the horses, but the caller often gets the wrong idea
hearing a panting female...... anyone who knows me believes me when I tell
them I'm actually cantering down a trail horseback, it's the other folks who
would like to place a very different interpretation on it!
