Owns Horse(s)? Yes
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being an ambassador for any company is a huge responsibility. Kerrits is a well-known company with products made especially for women who ride. Riding is commonly misunderstood by many people, and as athletes, this hurts a lot of us. We work very hard, long hours, long days, and yet, we still aren't appreciated like a basketball player is. I have my own company (EqDivine Equine) and am a True Beauty ambassador for Riders for Well Being, and strongly advocate for myself, riding, and the horses I love. I would love to be an ambassador for Kerrits because I work hard. I ride every day, several horses, and I'm currently breaking out a three year old. Money isn't growing on trees, so Kerrits breeches, which aren't as expensive as other brands, have become a favorite. I would love more pairs, but I only have two. They last forever, and I would love to get more. They have survived bucking fits with me in the dirt off of babies, cross country falls, and even the nice "I'm not going over that fence, mom, but you can!!"
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I want to be the next big thing. I want people to know my name, and say "Hey, I want to ride like her one day." I'm sure every little girl wants this, but I have the horse and the drive to take me there. Aerie is an 11 year old Selle Français, bred by Kyle Carter and shown through intermediate eventing. He is my ticket to the top, and my young horse, who has no real name, is my future Rolex horse. They are incredibly talented, and some day very soon, I will be the rider I hope to be. My horse came to me with the upper level eventing training, but no dressage training. This has completely changed, as Aerie is now a winning dressage horse through first level, and placing in the second level tests. He has the heart, and I have the drive. To be an ambassador for Kerrits would give us more recognition, which helps spark the eyes of anyone. I want to be the best, and soon, I will be.
What is your connection to Kerrits? I bought my first pair of Kerrits as a child. I only wanted them because they had Carrot seeds, but they were my show breeches as a child. I didn't win anything. I wasn't a pony finals child, but I learned how to ride on a five year old Percheron. She wasn't kind, she wasn't gentle, and more than not, I was in the dirt. These breeches have been on me most of my life, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to get more, as I have just started a paying job over the summer so I can finally afford the things I need for the show season. Thank you for the opportunity!!
