Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits ambassador means showing the world how fun it is to ride. Teaching kids that no matter how old you are, no matter how crazy of a dream you can reach it. It doesn't matter what other people think it doesn't matter if other people doubt you as long as you believe. Showing people that horses are crazy, wild, they're majestic creatures that just want love. 

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider my passion is to do my best and ride every day like it's my last. As a dressage rider my goal is to eventually one day be a grand prix rider clearly that's a very far off but as I said before no dream is too big to be reached. As for the show season I'm not gonna show very much because I still get quite nervous but I do want to go to Cadi. Cadi is an amazing show when you meet people from around the world and learned about different customs and different ways of life. This season I also plan on working with the little pony named Gwen. She is 14 and hasn't been ridden much but she's a little crazy. I'm up for a challenge this year and I'm ready to try working with horses I eventually want to be a vet and train my own horses. As an ambassador I want to teach people about horses I want to make a them feel comfortable. I want to make sure people know about this amazing world of creativity and loving that you couldn't could never find anywhere else. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? One day this summer I was wearing a pair of blue checkered riding tights from Kerrits. This was the same day that I cantered bareback for the first time. I felt like I was flying. Dylan is a horse I leased for the summer. He taught me how to love to a different level and to trust a different level. I trust him with all my heart and I was nervous at first about cantering bareback but when I realized that he wouldn't ever do anything to hurt me and I would never do anything to hurt him I knew I was going to be okay. He taught me that every little girl needs a horse and every horse needs a little girl or boy. Dylan also taught me that if I give a horse my heart the horse will give me his heart in return.
