Owns Horse(s)? Yes
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits' Ambassador to me means to represent the brand in as many ways possible. Wearing them at shows, clinics, and even around town; Sharing with others what I like about Kerrits and encouraging other equestrians to wear Kerrits.
Also I think it is important to give feedback on the products with both pros and cons, so that Kerrits can strive to improve it's products in the future.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? My passion as a rider is to develop horses to their ultimate potential. I use natural horsemanship groundwork training with my horses, which creates a trust and suppleness, alertness, understanding, and overall mental well being in the horse. As an event rider, my passion is to eventually get to Prelim or higher with my OTTB mare, Seeking Suki. Currently Suki and I are working on achieving a good foundation for her in dressage and working her way into eventing slowly.
As an ambassador, my passion is to show the durability, versatility and uniqueness of Kerrits products.
What is your connection to Kerrits? My first Kerrits experience was a cap I got for Christmas one year. I had asked for it, thinking it would help with helmet hair that summer after shows. I am not really a hat person, but I loved that hat! I recently got a jacket from Kerrits that I love so much and get many compliments on. It is great for riding because it is form fitting and flexible through the arms, which I have a real hard time finding jackets that move with you.
I am happy that Kerrits keep the rider's comfort in mind along with it being a fashion statement. The use of athletic fabrics that wick moisture, stretch with you and flex is exactly what every sport needs. Equestrian apparel should be no different!
