I don't know about a ham radio but a cb comes in handy on trail rides. It's highly recommended on Jeep Jamborees as that is how the trail leader can communicate with everyone else in the group. A cb is a cheap and easy way to keep in touch with everyone.
Also, if you have one that can give you weather updates it might just save your life!
