Owns Horse(s)? Yes

What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you? To be a Kerrits Ambassador would open so many doors in my life, not only as a rider, but in my later work career.  I would love to have more exposure to your company and learn more about the impact Kerrits, as a community, is aiming to accomplish.  Being an Ambassador to my absolute favorite riding wear company would widen my horizons and introduce me more to a professional world of riding. Ever since I was very young, riding has been my passion.  Now that I will shortly be entering high school, I would like to start to get more of a specific idea of what I want to do in my later years.  I already know that I  want a career based off of my passion, riding, but I would like to narrow my options down.  Being a Kerrits Ambassador would help me focus more on a specific job in the riding world, and build a foundation around living my dream and working in the riding industry. All-in-all, being an Ambassador for Kerrits would give me more experience and knowledge I need in my career to be able to live my dream working in the riding industry.  I believe that I have what it takes to be successful in a riding wear career, and that being a Kerrits Ambassador will help me achieve my goal.

What are your passions as a rider and ambassador? As a rider, I would love to work my way up through the levels of Eventing.  I have dedicated my life to riding and would love nothing less to continue a life long dream of being involved with horses.  At least three times a week I am practicing and working to become a better and more experienced rider.  Because of Pony Club, I am fortunate enough to train and learn from very experienced and successful riders in the eventing world.  Through my practice with riders who have achieved their goals, I have become more eager to be like the, and achieve my own goals.

What is your connection to Kerrits? Ever since I began riding, I'd always had such a hard time finding breeches that fit me.  Finally, my mom and I went to a small tack store about 45 minutes outside of town.  I must've taken 20 pairs of breeches from a mix of companies into the fitting room.  Slowly, I went through the pile and none seemed to fit.  They were either too big around the waist, too baggy at the knees, too tight, too short, etc.  It wasn't until the bottom of the pile when I tried on the Kerrits and fell in love with them! Ever since then, Kerrits breeches have been my go to riding wear brand. I am not the only one who treasures Kerrits breeches.  Over half of the people who ride at my barn prefer Kerrits riding breeches.  This goes to show that Kerrits is a truly made to satisfy the rider, not only by being extremely comfortable, but because the breeches are fashionable as well. One day my mom was shopping on the Kerrits online website and came across the story as to how the brand was created.  The fact that the company originated as a swimwear company amazes me.  Also, the creator of Kerrits started with a limited amount of money but still managed to create a successful company such as Kerrits. The story of how the brand was formed shows me that to become successful, you don't need to come from wealthy family that provides everything for you, all you need is to be passionate about what you love to be able to achieve your goals.
