Owns Horse(s)? Yes 

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? I have loved horses since I was six. I started at camp, worked my way up to lessons, leases, and then my parents bought me my first horse. The more I rode the more breeches I blew through, about once a month. About 5 months ago my mom went to my favorite tack shop and bought my first pair of Kerrits and I still have them today (In perfect condition). The fact that I ride the same amount as before and my Kerrits have still lasted this long makes me want to be a part of it. Being a Kerrits ambassador means that I am a part in something that I love and care about. 

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I love riding my paint mare Penny in my Kerrits. We just started to get some more height in our jumps. For me true riding is not just about how well you can keep your position on any horse, it's having a connection between you and your horse and feeling good about yourself. The clothes you wear definitely have an influence. So if you're like me and having a closet full of Kerrits makes you feel good about yourself, than it is worth the investment. I love this brand and I have no problem recommending it to strangers. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? I got my first pair of Kerrits when I blew through 8 pairs of riding pants within 6 months. I was desperate to find a nice pair of riding pants that would last longer. My mom ended up buying Kerrits riding tights for me. That is when my "slight" Kerrits addiction started. I now have a closet full and they have all lasted longer than expected. I show, ride, and work in these pants. The fact that they come with a bag of carrot seeds is so sweet. I will continue to keep purchasing this product until I stop riding (that's never). Occasionally when I want to be really comfortable and warm at school, I'll wear my black Kerrits winter full seat riding pants. They truly are my all time favorite brand.
