    I love the Endomondo app on my Droid X for tracking trail riding and conditioning.

    I'll have to look up Endomondo!

    I looked up Equisketch in the market, but nothing came up...

    I use MyTracks to track my trail rides, and it works really well. It's especially fun to see distance traveled, top speed (my horse's canter is around 16 mph) and the route taken. I try to use it whenever I'm going out alone, because I figure that having it already set to track GPS would be useful if I end up smushed on the ground...

    Where you all trail ride do you have perfect phone coverage? I'd love to try these apps, but the park I ride at 99% of the time doesn't have coverage. I can send and receive texts, but phone calls will ring but you can barely hear anything until the call gets dropped.

    I actually have an app that lets you record your own ringtone. I got it so I could make my own horse's nicker into my ringtone, but I haven't done it yet.

    Maybe I'll do that today. It seems like a perfect activity for a rainy day.
