Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? It means I can inspire riders of all ages by doing what I love, wearing the brand I love most. It means I can support and vouch for a company who not only makes good quality riding apparel, but for a company who cares about their customers and the world we live in.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I love waking up knowing that I get to do what I love most everyday - ride. I always strive to become a better rider and more importantly a better role model. I put in the extra hours everyday not only making sure my horse and I are ready to compete, but the others around me are confident and ready too! My passion as being both a rider and an ambassador is to inspire others to become more involved in the sport I love and make a difference in their lives. I want to represent a brand who has that same passion as I do. Even if the difference we make is small, like the breeches I'm wearing, it can still make a big impact on the world around us!!!

What is your connection to Kerrits? My coach was getting rid of breeches that didn't fit her anymore. I thought I might as well try some on as I always need more breeches (who doesn't!) and to be honest I go through breeches like there's no tomorrow. So I grabbed a single pair out of the few she had to offer, tried them on, and fell in love. That day I rode in them during my cross-country lesson and couldn't believe how great they were. When I needed to "stick" to my saddle I stuck and when I needed to get up off my horse's back, I was still able to do that. After my lesson, I ran back to that pile and hoarded all the Kerrits breeches/tights I could find. To do this day, I still have those breeches; I swear by Kerrits... and they last forever!!
