Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?  I would just love to promote this great brand and all of their amazing products. It seems I've always had Kerrits apparel in my closet ever since I've started riding and will continue to have. I absolutely LOVE wearing these breeches when I ride because they're just so nice and comfortable!

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? Ever since I was little I always loved horses, so naturally I began to ride. I started lessons when I was 3 and 4 but joined Pony Club and started riding English when I was 5. Being in Pony Club I did a lot of jumping and dressage and some cross country, so around a young age I could tell that eventing was my calling. Nowadays, I have began training young, green horses and have been showing more and more. I recently just sold one of my ponies that have had since I was 6 and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. He brought me from small cross rails to being confident over beginner novice. I will miss him everyday but I know that it was for the best because he is happily with his new owners and I can begin to move up more. My dream is to someday be able to compete in Rolex or the Olympics. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? My mom was the one who introduced me to Kerrits when I was little. I'm also pretty sure my first pair of breeches were Kerrits because I can remember going into the tack store when I needed breeches and leaving with a pair Kerrits. I guess I just couldn't keep myself from the comfort and style of the breeches. Plus, absolutely great for eventing because of the breathable, stretchy, and gripping material they're made from! When I learned about the ambassador program from a friend of mine, she encouraged me to apply knowing my relation with Kerrits. I am very excited about the program and what it could bring for this great riding brand!
