One year and one week ago, my best friend, Carol, and I spent a pleasant evening walking and window shopping in downtown Stuttgart, Germany.
As usual, I was looking for horses.I was having a good amount of success.
Horses are popular in Germany...
and Schleichs are everywhere.
As we were walking along, Carol noticed a larger horse in a store window.I told her we couldn't afford the Hermes horse, but we went in anyway.
My eyes went straight to the Hermes Arpege dressage saddle.
Carol looked a little higher and noticed the riding helmet."I need a new helmet," she told me.
I laughed and said, "Not that one," but she was determined. She asked an employee if she could try it on, and that's when we learned that a Hermes helmet costs more than one thousand euros. That's more than all the helmets I tried on today combined, including the Charles Owen!
Needless to say, Carol did not buy the Hermes helmet!
