The medicine bag lays on top of the saddle bags and hooks to the d rings and is then tied with the same ties to the saddle bags. Now...this is the small medicine bag. I have the same one in a larger size to add the emergency overnight gear should we get stuck in the middle of nowhere but only use that larger bag when riding way up in the mountain areas.
The horn bags I choose for each ride depends on the following. Who I am riding with, where we are riding to, and the temperature. I am a horn bag princess! I have more horn bags than anyone I know! The brown canvas with the desert stables logo were a gift from Spanky. They are great to keep trail snacks, gloves when I take them off and any other items I need to keep handy. The leather, hair on hide fits over the top of the canvas for water and LEMONADE! This is my new bag from "Cowboy Christmas" that I seem to pick now over my others.
All together these bags are too heavy for me to carry in one load to the truck for the days ride. I do feel sorry for Jesse during the hot season when he has to carry extra water. But he is in luck now that most of our snow from our "snow day ride" has melted and most of our streams in our backyard have enough water for the horses to get a good clean drink!
Little Lady and Jesse all loaded up on the ride. This is our lunch stop and they were lucky to have this nice shady area. Both were tied to trees and could get a few bites of the munchies below or above. They are looking at us over on our picnic table rock waiting very patiently for their lunch they both know The Desert Rose has packed for them in Jesse's saddle bags!
Your Desert Rose!
