The plastic strap on the back of my helmet broke as I was hanging it up after Tuesday's ride. The helmet was old enough to merit replacement anyway, so today I drove out to Dover Saddlery in Parker.
I do most of my shopping online these days, so this was a rare pleasure. Before I headed to the helmet section, I made a quick lap around the store
I looked at the things I might need...and those that I most assuredly do not.
Oh, it's been a long time since I've enjoyed the sights and smells of a well stocked tack shop!
Once I'd seen everything, I tried on nearly a dozen helmets. Only one fit, which is par for the course with me and why I felt like I had to make this particular purchase in person.My last stop was the Breyer aisle. I was hoping to find a classic scale horse for a special NaMoPaiMo project.
There were a couple prospects.
This is the one I chose.
That was a fun shopping trip, and I am looking forward to many safe miles in the new helmet and a look for the new pony.
