I know there is a name for this strap and I can't for the life of me remember what it is. I'm thinking of getting one for my dad for Christmas. It's a strap of leather that goes around the pommel of a western saddle so you can use that strap as a grip rather than the horn. I know I've heard them called "Oh Crap Straps" but I know there is an actual name for them. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? They are great for grabbing on when a horse goes to spook. I've always thought the horn was just awkward to hold! I'm also in the market for good gift ideas for my dad. He's big into trail riding, so if you can think of any nifty gift ideas ($30 or so) I would love it. He has a trailer with a dressing room that he uses to sleep in. Sometimes he goes camping, but usually he goes out a few times a week to some local trails. Hmmm...a good first aid kit might be a nice idea. He doesn't have a fully equipped one. Can anyone give me a list of things that should be included in a smaller first aid kit for a trail rider? I know he has some of the more expensive items like antibacterial stuff, but not much gauze or anything. Or maybe even an emergency repair kit to keep on the saddle out on the trail. What could I include in that? Thanks in advance!
