Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador means sharing my passion for riding in Kerrits with my fellow equestrians! 

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? The day that I learned to walk was the same day that I rode my first horse. I have been riding horses for 16 years and have been riding competitively for 14. I started off by riding in the hunter ring, that lasted for about 5 years. I quickly realized that Eventing was my true calling. I rode in a low-profile event barn until this past year when I moved to Ryan Wood's farm, who is a 4* Australian Event Rider. I wanted to expand my knowledge not only as a rider but as a barn manager so I could be successful at the upper levels as a JN/YR. Ryan devotes endless amount of time to my training and the well being of me and my horse. Ryan helped me find my current horse, Cubby, who is a one in a million horse. Justine Dutton, Cubby's previous rider, won the Bareback Puissance at Plantation Field at the height of 5'11. Cubby is a hard-working horse that is oozing with talent. Cubby and I are currently competing at Training Level and plan to move up to Preliminary at the end of the season. Cubby is a very well known horse in my area, so there is constant attention on him and myself. We compete nearly every weekend with Ryan at events. I attend an online school so I can devote as much time as possible to my riding. I have a strong social following on Instagram with nearly 4,000 followers, as well as Facebook. I post pictures quite frequently and can highlight your products in each picture! I have been dreaming for an opportunity like this since my eventing career began. 


What is your connection to Kerrits? Kerrits are my "go to" breeches. I have always had at least three pairs in my wardrobe. Believe it or not, my very first pair of show breeches were Kerrits!
