What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits ambassador, to me, you must be someone who shows a love and passion for the brand and products within. Someone who can give detailed information about the products, quality, sizing etc. An approachable and inspiring person who wears the clothing with pride and who looks the part. Someone who is an enthusiastic but sensible and safe equestrian, who advocates a positive equine lifestyle through the Kerrits brand. A passion for equestrian fashion and looking comfortable and fashionable while riding is key to influencing onlookers with the uniqueness of Kerrits products. 

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider, I have been on horseback for over 9 years. As any other little girl my love for ponies began at my first horseback riding lesson on my 6th birthday. I have grown as a rider and horsewoman over the years by experiencing many disciplines and horses, but my heart is set within the English disciplines of dressage and show jumping. My passion lies at not only the riding, but the intuitive training and welfare of horses, equine products and equine photography. As an ambassador I love promoting new horse related products I buy through my YouTube, Instagram and Tumblr to my large number of followers and fan base. As a rider my passion is at the heart of building up horses to full potential, the lessons in which you teach the horse but the ones they also teach you as a rider. I aspire in the future to be a trainer and breeder who teaches and inspires those of the younger generation to treasure and love these horses in which carry us through our equestrian passion.

What is your connection to Kerrits? My recent love for the Kerrits brand came about after a 4 week trip the the USA, I ventured into a tack store in New York city in hope to find the perfect pair of new breeches. Finding a pair that fit snug and comfortably is a daily struggle for me! The Kerrits rack took my eye straight away with the awesome patterned long sleeve shirts and classic coloured breeches. I tried on about 4 pairs of different ones, all in different colours and types.The cross over full seat breech in the colour shale became an instant love for me! I was so surprised at how well the breeches fit to my hips and legs, the breathable material, awesome sticky full seat and dirt repelling material had me at hello! I don't think I have ever loved a pair of breeches so much in my life. To this day I have worn them around 25 times and the incredible durability and wear is outstanding, the colour is still its bright grey and the sticky bum still intact! I am excited to purchase, trial and recommend many more Kerrits products in the near future. Another element that drew me into Kerrits was the fact that the brand began from one single woman and grown to now 20, the unique and passionate team that has grown to for fill the needs of equestrians around the world!
