What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? It would mean the world to me to be a Kerrits Ambassador! I have faced many obstacles in my riding career, so I have had to work hard for my opportunities and to become the rider that I am today. Being chosen to be a Kerrits Ambassador would show me that hard work really can pay off and that there are others who believe in my dreams as much as I do! My ultimate goal is to compete in the Grand Prix and to train and inspire others to follow their dreams, too! Becoming an ambassador would be another stepping stone in my journey. And I would love to represent such a great company with such great, quality products!

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My parents put me on a pony ride for my first birthday and haven't been able to get me off ever since! Just living with and riding horses is a blessing all in its own, so competing and traveling with these amazing creatures is a dream come true! Since day one, nothing was ever handed to me. I had to work for all my opportunities and rides. Most of the horses and ponies I've ridden, whether my own or others, I had to train myself, so I have a great appreciation for the horse training process. I know you can often end up in the dirt and it can be a very long, hard process, but it can be so rewarding and come with great success in the end. I have been able to compete, ribbon, and even win at some major shows like Lake Placid, Vermont Summer Festival, HITS Saugerties, and Fairfield with these horses! I'm so grateful for what each and every one of them have taught me! Horses are my biggest passion and I would love to make Kerrits an even bigger part of that! I want to tell everyone about one of the best horse companies! I want to chase down my dreams and spread Kerrits seeds all along the way! wink

What is your connection to Kerrits? Growing up, I've always been a tiny kid, even today I'm only 5 feet tall. Now, this is great because I'm 16 and still get to ride small ponies, however, finding the right fit clothing has always been a struggle. I swam in everything I tried on....until I found Kerrits! The slim fit of their stretch riding pants has been a saving grace for me! I've been riding in Kerrrits clothing since the beginning and have been loving it ever since! Everyone has a different shape and size, which not all brands accommodate, but Kerrits does! Kerrits is the one company that truly looks good and feels good on everyone. Being an ambassador, I would make sure to tell everyone about the great experiences I've had with Kerrits and the great experiences that they could have, too! I want to give back to a company that has been so great to me throughout the years!
