Owns Horse(s)? Yes
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador means that I get to help showcase my favorite riding apparel. I love my Kerrits Performance Tights with the drawstring waistband. I wear them at my endurance rides and also on my training rides for the past seven years. My mom originally started wearing them on her endurance rides and when I began my endurance career at age 11, and also wore them too as she told me how comfortable and cool they kept her. I would like to let other endurance riders, adults and juniors know about Kerrits apparel and how comfortable and practical they are .They are perfect for long hours in the saddle in all types of terrain, and also for arena work.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I've been riding since before I could walk (Yes, seriously!) and I've always been drawn to distance type riding and endurance riding in particular. I'm looking forward to this summer and tackling the World's Most Challenging endurance ride "The Tevis Cup" also know as the Western States Trail 100 miles One Day ride. I qualified early on to ride this ride , and I know my Kerrits riding tights will help keep me cool in the 100+ degree canyons and also comfortable as the sunsets and also when my horse and I swim the American River by moonlight. The horse I will be riding was purchased when I turned 11 and was originally a Gymkhana horse and I trained and conditioned her myself to do endurance riding. I enjoy spending time with my Arabian mare, JC Arizona Star out on the trail. One day I would like to represent the United States in their endurance team and travel to other countries to ride. Meeting other riders who enjoy the trails just as much as I do while wearing my Kerrits apparel is in my opinion the icing on the Kerrit Cake!
What is your connection to Kerrits? My first experience was when I was about 9 or 10 because my mom has always worn your apparel and she was often commenting how comfortable and versatile the clothing is. She purchased my first pair of Performance Tights and a shirt for endurance riding when I turned 11, as a Birthday Present) and I fell in love with the feel of the fabrics. I was told by a friend about the Kerrits Ambassador Program and she suggested I sign up as I always ride in your product and could be a good representative for it.
