What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Brand Ambassador means advertising your brand through integrity, good sportsmanship, and persistence. It means that whether I'm representing in the ring or on the trail, me and my horse are showing the best that we can be while sporting your products. Through Social Media I would post upcoming sales, special deals, new products and my own Kerrits wardrobe. On the trail or in the arena, being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean representing through wearing your products and telling other equestrians about your line of apparel, while displaying a great attitude and friendly demeanor. It would be my job to spread the word of Kerrits!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My passion as a rider is competing and training. I am a firm believer that every time you're sitting in the saddle, you're working for something better. Whether it's a better version of yourself, your horse, or the level of which you compete at, there can always be improvements. Then as a competitive person, the way I put my goals to the test is by showing. I ask myself “Can I put a check in the box, or are there still things I can improve on?” My overall goal is to own and run a boarding facility that instructs and trains based off each individual (human or horse) that walks in. I want to help equestrians and their horses become the best that they can be! By being an ambassador I can continue towards this goal through products that enhance my ride, as they provide me with comfort and workability.
What is your connection to Kerrits? The first time I was introduced to Kerrits was through my birthday in 4th grade. We had driven to our nearest farm store, Wilco, as I had been given some money for a gift. Looking through the clothes, I had picked out the white t-shirt with purple galloping horses. (Pictured through the “gallery pics”, 4th grade me is wearing the t-shirt) I was also subscribed to a magazine called “Young Riders”, and entered the Junior Design Contest months later. At this point I had made the connection between my favorite shirt, a few pairs of breeches, and the contest. They were all the same brand! Now Kerrits has become my favorite brand of riding tights, and I can't find anything else that compares. (nothing else fits my long legs comfortably) Just last holiday season I was gifted my trainers old riding breeches, and most of them were Kerrits Brand. Now I’m a freshman with the same love for your riding tights and shirts as I had in elementary school!
