Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? It means representing a great brand that supports not just a sport but a lifestyle that we all love so much ... our ponies and horses!

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I am very competitive and I have goals that I want to accomplish like riding FEI ponies at Dressage at Devon. But what I love the most is being at the barn and spending time with my welsh pony Black Jack. He is my best friend and I LOVE him! Also I really want more kids my age to know more about the sport of Dressage. Dressage is my passion and I think it's not something that many young kids get a chance to learn until they get older. If I had this opportunity I would want to use it to show people how beautiful Dressage is. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? At my first barn where I started taking lessons all the older girls had Kerrits and I wanted them so bad. I was only 5 then and I didn't have a pair of real riding pants. My mom took me to a consignment store and we found a pair that fit. I wore them almost everyday!!! Whenever my mom is buying me new riding pants I always ask for Kerrits. I like the full seats the best! I also love the venti shirts!
