I've got an s9, and it's simply too big too put into the tiniest pocket my jodhs seem to have. It does however fit into my riding tights, but I won't be wearing them during the winter. I get hot around working around the yard, and rarely wear a coat (which has pockets), so what is recommended? Thanks in advance.

S21 here, humungous but fits into the pockets of my riding tights, I'm quite a warm person when I'm out and about doing things esp with winter boots and a hat on so I wear them all year round.

Body warmer.
Don’t put it in your bra! I know someone that routinely put her phone in her bra and got a hell of a bruise and a broken phone after a fall.

Riding tights pocket if there is one. If not and it’s not particularly warm, I’ll wear a light jacket or gilet with a pocket. If it’s T-shirt weather, I have a running belt thing.
If I’m at a farm ride and I don’t have a jacket on for whatever reason, I have a very fetching bum bag that holds my phone and wagon keys.

I always make sure I buy leggings/tights with a big pocket in and it stays in there. I don’t like using coat/body warmer pockets as it feels uncomfortable when I’m riding

Karrimor runner's belt. Nice and slimline and you don't know you're wearing it; it stays close and doesn't bump around in canter. Just the job.

Have had the heavier bulky ones in the past and they jump around on you like a bag of ferrets if you canter.
This is why I don’t like my running belt, it’s awful in canter for bouncing around.

I have phone and glasses (!) in a little zipped up purse that sits round my waist on an elastic belt with a clip outside my hi viz waistcoat, does the job of keeping the waistcoat closed too.

Cheapy elastic type running belt less than £10 on amazon, its brilliant you don't know its there but plenty of room for phone.
A godsend out hunting too, saves the ugly droop and bouncing around you get if you try and use your coat pocket and still room for a secret stash of sweets!

Gilet pocket if it's cold enough. If it isn't, I make sure I'm wearing riding tights with a thigh pocket. Although that's only if I'm leaving the yard. If I'm just schooling, phone generally stays in my car.
