What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador is very important to me. I have found Kerrits apparel to be the most comfortable and true to size. I would like to show other riders how great the brand is! I also believe in leadership and would like to show other riders how important it is to establish strong leadership with your horse in order to sustain a happy/healthy relationship together. Being a Kerrits Ambassador means that I have the opportunity to be a leader and a role model for others while doing what I love!

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I am passionate about my riding because it is something that takes my mind off daily stressors. The bond between a horse and rider is something special and equestrians are fortunate to experience that! I am passionate about teaching a horse new things and in return learning new things myself from riding! I currently lease but hope to own some day. Leasing is great for me right now because as a young professional I am moving around a lot. Leasing gives me the opportunity to learn different things from all kinds of different horses that I have been riding. As an ambassador I am passionate about networking with the equestrian community and inspiring others. We can all learn from each other!

What is your connection to Kerrits? My first experience with Kerrits was purchasing my first white dressage shirt for my first ever dressage show. I ended up placing second on both of my tests with a horse I will never forget (Chuck Full of Promise). I also love the riding tights I own from Kerrits. They come in fun colors, I have a black pair with a blue houndstooth pattern down both legs and a pair of solid black. They are my go-to summer riding tights because they are made out of a very thin material that keeps me cool riding on the hottest days!
