What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? It means a new responsibility - but a very fun one! Wearing the brand with pride and showing everybody the benefits of it. People regularly ask me about the designs, how they feel to ride in, and how much time I've been wearing Kerrits ... even how I became an Ambassador. Being an Ambassador for Kerrits is an open door for the future of my sport and my image for becoming better and better.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My passion as a rider is the connection with the horses - the way it feels like flying. It doesn’t matter how high the jump is, it's always thrilling to conquer new heights and riding all day. My ambassador passion is showing the brand to everybody not only in my city, but in my country of living. Kerrits has become more popular thanks to their designs and I see more and more girls wearing them. That is very satisfying, as they start knowing the brand thanks to the support that I receive from Kerrits.

What is your connection to Kerrits? I started looking for a different brand of breeches -- a very fun one, with a different look, and found Kerrits. The story that the brand is not just for showing but for any given day caught my attention. I respect that the business was started by a women, for women, and with many women working there -- helped me understand as a young woman, that the sky is no limit. Also the personal understanding that the fabrics they use make a difference!
