Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? To me being a Kerrits Ambassador means that I get to support a safe and comfortable way of riding, no matter the discipline! Since buying my first pair of Kerrits breeches I have no doubt that this is a high quality brand that I can always depend on whether I am using them in a show, or enjoying a hack. From personal experience I can prove that all my Kerrits products are very reliable not to mention beautiful and something that everyone should own, when it comes down to it, it means that I can support safety and comfort in our sport and hopefully show all my friends that its a brand to love!  

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I love horses; but to be honest I believe all of the passion is fueled by them, they have brought all of us, riders, trainers and dreamers together and the least they deserve is to be given the best care and love we could possibly give, both inside the ring and out. I hope and dream that I can reach the ultimate bond with my horse, Avaline through dressage and hopefully jumping. I want to build a safe and fun relationship with her and really explore our limits to how far we can go, both professionally and with building our partnership and trust with each other. 

What is your connection to Kerrits? My first experience with your brand was about two years ago. My friends and I were training and I said my breeches were uncomfortable in the heat and I wasn't very happy with them. After talking about how my discomfort in the saddle was affecting my concentration and my performance she told me about her Kerrits and how she loved them! With the impending hot Texas show season about to kick off I invested in a pair and they were fantastic; very comfortable and reliable, i was able to relax and focus on my riding, two years later I still have and often use my first Kerrits riding pants along with my several others!
