Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador means representing all of the meaning behind equine activities To be an equestrian one must have dedication to the sport. Being an ambassador shows how dedicated I am to riding. Kerrits has products that I can wear and rely on when I need them. I live in a place where there are extremely hot summers and very cold winters. Kerrits has breeches that I can wear in any season. This way I can ride year round and keep working everyday to improve my own skills and the horses I am riding.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I am very passionate about horseback riding because it is a sport that is much more than the physical work on the saddle. It is also about the bond between horse and rider and how that can affect the ability of the pair. A rider and horse must be passionate for each other and have a strong connection to get an ideal outcome in the ring. You must work with your horse and not give up. It takes a while to gain trust with a horse but patience is key. A bond with a horse is something I am passionate about because it feels amazing to have that connection with such an incredible animal.


What is your connection to Kerrits? I began riding about five years ago. My mother use to ride a lot so I have always had a connection to the horse world. Kerrits is a brand that stands out to me because of their logo with the carrot. The company believes in creating a more healthy environment for the world. Boxes and paper is reused but always in good shape, fabrics are produced in an environmentally friendly manner, and the company creates as less waste as possible. A percentage of all products bought is donated to the Equestrian Land Conservation Resource. They help protect and conserve land to help horses and all other sources of living. Kerrits has been a product that I rely on because I believe in their mission and I also love their products!
