Owns Horse(s)? Yes. I primarily event with my gelding. Recently, my boyfriend purchased me a little mare that I plan on bringing along into the eventing world as well.
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? My favourite products that I ride in are Kerrits. It would be amazing for me to represent a product that I enjoy so much and associate great memories with. The story behind that company alone is inspiring, as I would like to start my own business in the future. Its would be amazing to be a part of something with such a great story.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? Personally, Im a very big advocate for doing something that you love, and never stopping. I also think that doing what you love, with a partner you have an amazing connection with is the most rewarding thing ever. I love my horse, more than anything in the world. We have a bond that is hard to explain. We bring out the best in each other, and have each others back no matter what. He's saved my butt in a few situations, and I've given him the confidence that he needs in others. As an ambassador I would promote the desire to bring out the best in horse/rider duo, and really support the bond that a horse develops to its rider.
What is your connection to Kerrits? I purchased my first Kerrits products when I attended the CN International at Spruce Meadows. I instantly fell in love with my flex tight full seats, and literally wore them constantly until they let go at the seams. I also got myself a polo shirt with a zipper half way down the chest. Here, is where my real connection hits home. I went through a really stressful period in my life and like most females who have horses, I turned to my horse, Hugo. Hugo, loves my Kerrits shirt. Every time that I got overwhelmed with what I was dealing with, I wore that shirt. Hugo proceeded to play with the zipper and fish peppermints out of the side pocket. It instantly made me feel better and brought out a laugh. My submitted photo is of the best ride we had in a while, wearing my Kerrits shirt and laughing with happiness.
