Owns Horse(s)? Yes
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits ambassador would mean the world to me. Not only do I drool over your products, but I think as a whole your company is different from many others. In my personal opinion, it doesn't seem as though you are only out for money, but more for supplying for equestrians with useful products for an affordable price.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider: My passion obviously generates around horses but that is a tad vague to say the least.
To get more in depth, one of my passions is helping young riders. Throughout the year I help my trainer with group lessons. I help the little ones grab their ponies, I will teach them the basics of grooming (What a frog is, how to walk around your horse's butt safely, stand to the side when brushing their tails, etc.), a few easy ways to tell if their tack is fitting properly, and some other things. I have watched a few kids in my time grow to be fabulous equestrians no matter the age they began riding at. I truly enjoy seeing these children grow not only as people, but riders as well.
another passion of mine as a rider would be seeing my horse and I grow as a pair and bond as teammates. When I got my latest horse last September he wasn't very fond of me. He would run from me in the field and had some nasty habits (Pawing, rearing on the ground, biting, etc.). Since then he has became a wonderful horse in and out of the saddle. This is our first season we will be competing together and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for us.
As an ambassador, my main passion is to help promote equine-related businesses whether they're big or small. Some people may think that all ambassador positions are about 'free items' or 'discounts', which is not the case for me. I am a brand ambassador for two small businesses and only one sends me products to review/promote. The other cannot afford to send me products or discounts, when I was contacted they expected me to deny but I am not searching for items. I am searching for the growth of companies and promoting great products/brands to friends and viewers.
What is your connection to Kerrits? For years I could never find a breech that fit me in every aspect of my lower body. I began to ride in leggings and dread horse shows due to my self consciousness because of how all the breeches I tried looked on my horrible on my body. After writing about it on a equine-related Facebook group I was recommended to try your brand, Kerrits. I picked up a pair of your riding tights from a friend (They did not fit her anymore). I fell in love before I even rode in them! Besides that, Kerrits is one of the few companies that offer quality riding clothes for an affordable price.
