Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being an Ambassador to the Kerrits brand means presenting people with an amazing horse apparel, being someone that people look at and think "wow, that looks amazing" and bringing more people in to discover the brand and purchase items. Also, it would mean wearing the products while showing, so that is an amazing way to put forward a great line of clothing to people.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My passion is my horse. I show a purebred Arabian, and have every intention on making it to US Nationals, Scottsdale, and Canadian Nationals, and placing well. I also have a 5 year old daughter who rides. As an Ambassador I would want to inspire others, to go out, look their best while showing, and have positive sportsmanship. Bringing people into the community of riding, showing is getting harder to do. I want to inspire people that if they have a goal, where there is a will there is a way. My 5 year old shows in lead line, (she is hoping it is her last year as she is soon turning 6) and she has the most positive attitude. So supportive of all her friends who show. She wants to be just like me. As a mother and rider, I think it would be an amazing opportunity to become an ambassador of the products. So many people...children, junior, and adult amateur riders like myself need a good role model, someone to aspire to. I would love to be that for someone. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? I bought a show jacket that I fell in love with in Portland Oregon. They didn't have my size, but I tried on one size bigger and loved the color as it would complement my horse, and the white piping around it. Since they didn't have it, they suggested ordering online. I tried directly through the site, but they only had a black one. I ordered through Amazon, only to find out about a month later that they hadn't shipped it out because they didn't have it at the warehouse. I finally tracked down a seller on Amazon, I believe in CO, called them directly and placed my order. I was in love with the jacket and just had to have it.  I love Kerrits brand because it's fashionable, affordable, and has pretty much everything you need to show. I own several of the your breeches, and love them all. 
I support local businesses, and love that you are based out of Oregon. As being a part of the PNW (born and raised...then throughout the world with my husband who just retired from the Navy) I strongly encourage shopping at locally owned businesses.
