What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? As a rider, trainer, instructor and barn owner it's important to have products that we can trust, rely on and feel comfortable in as we're bustling about in our busy day. If a clients asks my opinion on the best clothing line, I always tell them to check out Kerrits! Every Kerrits product I own is light weight and comfortable in our Florida heat. My Kerrits show shirts are perfect under heavy black dress coats. If I could only make it rich in the horse business, I'd have closets full - I love all of the unique colors, patterns and options!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My greatest passion is the beauty of the horse and the elegance of dressage. I have an incredible drive to constantly learn and improve as a rider and horsewoman. I want to be the best me that I can be and help to bring out the best in my horses on a daily basis. Their metal, emotional and physical health is of utmost importance. I love seeing this same passion for the horses and drive to learn and improve in my students, it's truly inspiring.
What is your connection to Kerrits? As a horse show fanatic it seems like you always need something new - white clothes just don't stay white forever. My parents actually purchased my first Kerrits shirt for me as a birthday gift years ago now and it's still my go-to show shirt...even though I have plenty of others. I think it holds a little luck and magic!
