Owns Horse(s)? Yes
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? Being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean a lot to me as I would love to spread the word about this awesome brand. The breeches are great for everyday riding, showing, and also just being around the barn. I ride in these at all the events I go to throughout the show season: at USPC events, hunter/jumper shows, local fair ground shows, trail trials, and everywhere else I go with my horse. Not only are they perfect for running around the barn doing horse chores but they also look awesome in the show ring. I just love how versatile these are and how long they hold up to my extensive use of them.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? I have always been very passionate about jumping. I just love the feeling of flying over the fences, no matter what the height. My favorite type off riding competition is jumpers. I love the speed and how technical it is. My mare is a big fan of the speed portion. I have been competing for about 5 of the 8 years I have been riding. Besides jumping, I am very into horse and rider communication. This is obviously a large part of any activity I choose to do with my mare including our work on the ground. I am also very into grooming. I take hours grooming my mare and sometimes I end up grooming her longer than I actually ride her. It is a great way to spend time with your horse when you are not riding and to show them you care. As an ambassador, I would love to wear Kerrits apparel throughout all of the activities I love to do with horses.
What is your connection to Kerrits? The first time I bought a pair of Kerrits riding tights was from a local riding consignment store when I was younger. I wanted to find something comfortable for riding but that also looked nice for riding as I was still training at a fancy hunter/jumper barn. These breeches were perfect! We had been looking for a pair of breeches that would fit my long, skinny legs which proved to be somewhat of a challenge! Eventually, I bought a few more pairs and now these are my go to breeches for everything! They are so comfortable and great for the hot summer months. I also loved how they come in fun colors.
