What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador has always been a dream of mine. I've seen ambassadors on Instagram, and I have always strived to be like them. I chose to apply to be a Kerrits ambassador because it is by far one of my favorite brands, and a lot of my riding clothes consist of Kerrits. I would be honored to be part of the Kerrits team, and I know it would be a wonderful experience. smile

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider, my main goal is to get to IEA Nationals. IEA means a lot to me, because it gives me the opportunity to show in various different locations on many wonderful horses, and experience I would not get otherwise. As an ambassador, I would really like to help people realize the quality of Kerrits. When people think of "stretchy riding pants" they think of how easily they tear and get worn out. But I've had some of my Kerrits pants for over 3 years, and they still look great! Horses mean the world to me, and there is no where I'd rather be than in the saddle. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? I have been riding since I was very little. I got my first pony when I was only 3, and then my second one when I was four. I had him until I was 10, and he was the last pony I owned. But after that, I joined IEA and began to ride the wonderful school horses at my barn. Through all of this time, I wore my favorite Kerrits riding pants, and I had plenty of them, because I am small and everyone gives me their hand me downs smile. From mid 2014- mid 2015, I took care of a very special mare named Polly. And she was that horse that changed everything. The one that thought me to be the rider I am today. Unfortunately, she was sold in April. On our last day, I woke up and immediately put on my favorite Kerrits riding pants. I knew that that was going to be a special day, and I wanted everything to go smoothly. The last thing I wanted was to have a riding pants malfunction. But I knew that I could trust my Kerrits smile. So, Kerrits have definitely been a part of my riding journey, and I definitely want it to stay that way.
