Owns Horse(s)? Yes.

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Becoming a Kerrits Ambassador would mean the world to me. Throughout most of my riding career I have relied on these products and I would love to officially promote them. Kerrits is my go-to company for new gear. I also would be thrilled to represent a company that believes in women in the horse world. I believe women need to have a bigger voice in the equestrian community and even though we make up a large part of riders, men are much more common at the highest levels. I believe that Kerrits can really empower women riders, just like they did for me.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider, I am passionate about creating a strong connection between me and my horse. I believe that is the most important thing in horseback riding. That connection is what fuels my love for the sport and gives me meaning in my life each day. My favorite moments in my riding career consist of silly moments with my horses around the barn, liberty work, testing my bond with the horses by hacking and jumping. 

As an ambassador, I am passionate about helping newer riders feel the connection with the horse and experiencing the same love I found when I was younger. I really like to help teach others and share what I have learned about horses so they can learn about the amazing bond you can develop. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? The first product I got from Kerrits was a ventilating shirt that was perfect for schooling. I immediately fell in love with the shirt. The back detail was so cute but it was also functional and helped me stay cool in summer, as it gets pretty hot where I ride. I loved this shirt and I knew that I wanted my next new riding outfit to be from Kerrits. I began to browse the website and once I learned the purpose of Kerrits, I knew it was a company that reflected my values. Now, I have several pairs of tights, breeches (both knee patch and full seat), a ice-fil shirt, and the all-weather coat. I truly believe my riding would suffer if I couldn't wear my Kerrits! My tights and ice-fil shirt keep me cool and my winter tights are the most amazing things, they are so comfortable! I love your products and totally love that the people at Kerrits ride as well, it makes me confident the products will be functional.
