The "Attachable Pouch" from The Company of Hounds
I went on a trail ride the other day and started thinking about a safe way to carry my phone on the trails. I could only think of wearing a thin vest (in 90F weather) in order to have a pocket available that would hold my phone safely. I have one of those Velcro phone holders that you can attach to your boot or arm, but they're not very practical or safe. What if you get stuck on something during the ride? Your phone is gone and you can injure yourself or scare your horse.
I realized how great it would be to have an extra little pocket to attach to my belt, almost like a fanny pack but without the extra strap around your waist. Even though a fanny pack would be great functionally, it isn't the 80s anymore and alas not in style. But what is? Harris Tweed. So, meet my new, updated version of the fanny pack that you can easily slide onto your belt and hold your belongings while on the horse, walk, or even around town.
The bigger Attachable Pouch fits a cell phone, keys, money, a pocketknife, tissues, chewing gum, treats, etc. The smaller Pouch fits a cell phone, a couple of treats and maybe another small item.
Of course, I tested the bags immediately after my first creation and found that the bigger one is also ideal as a treat pouch during training sessions (Bentley approved too), and the smaller pouch is perfect for arena riding and a short ride-out when you only want to carry your cell phone.
The Attachable Pouches are $40 each and I can make them in many different colors - to match your breeches, shirt or horse! Let me know what you think.
Love and Peace to all of you! <3
