NO! I don't like logos on things, especially ones that advertise that you spent a boatload of money on something just for that logo. It is unappealing to look like a human billboard. (Apologies to those of you who like it, I'm sure you would look absolutely smashing :) )

I just googled the price for these and found a 2012 article.

The whip is $525 through special order

The helmet is $2 470.

I even found a soft brush with handle, goat hair, beachwood and silk by Hermes for $378.

Here is the article:

Yeah I think the only thing I liked is the hunt jacket, and even then it'd get so dirty so quickly.

Let them use equines to inspire their fashion, but I'm not going to be buying it

That's ridiculous. If someone walked into the barn wearing that crap saying they're ready to ride I'd laugh. "Equestrian" inspired boots lol. Those breeches. Lol. I understand they're for fashion but that's quite a bit of moolah to be throwing out there for something that would get dirty in a day. Are those breeches even made for riding?!

No, I wouldn't buy one regardless of how much money I had. And, I probably wouldn't buy perfume from Cactus, either.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

That is hilarious! You could not pay me to buy one. I find our sport is already full of enough brand names and stuck up filthy rich people to make things worst by adding an extra brand name. I would honestly be embarrassed to have anything along those lines.

Folks who are very impressed by the amount of $$ they have and are really trying hard to impress everyone else as well, which is, honestly lost on me, that is who pays STUPID $$ for stuff. Here is another prime example-I actually saw one the other day while we were out for a boat ride ourselves. We all said "What the $%&^ is that????!! Then I saw who was driving.....and the name on the side of the boat....."GUCCI"........lol. We all laughed when we saw who it was. Pretty typical for these folks. But where we live, most are not impressed. I laughed even harder when I found out it comes with shoes and bags. Ridiculous. For the price it should come with a driver and lifetime of gas!

No, I would not, not even if I was richer than God.
Waste of money IMO.

There is nothing different or better about that equipment than the (comparatively) cheap brands already out there, so why waste that much money just for a logo?

The crop by itself costs almost as much as my car did. Heck, the helmet costs quite literally THREE TIMES as much as I paid for my car.
