Ambassador: BRITTANY JONES
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador means spreading the word of a quality brand. I love all of my Kerrits clothing that I own now and would enjoy spreading my love of the brand to other people in the horse industry. I could do this at my school (William woods university), at shows, and on my social media sites. I would also lIke to try out products that I do not currently own so that I could share those products with my fellow horse back riders. I think that by working together, I could help spread the good name of the Kerrits brand while also being supported by the brand as I achieve my dream of being a horse trainer. The brand's support would also help me along the way while I gain showing experience.!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
My passions as a rider are to get horses to be the best that they can be while using the least amount of force. I do my best to get the horses to want to do what I ask rather than doing it out of fear or being forced into it. That's one reason that I try not to decide what the end goal is for the horse until I have figured out what it is that he wants to do. It's much more difficult to make a horse be a calm and happy hunter if all it wants to do is run. But, if you realize that it enjoys going fast, and that it's good at turning, you will have a much better time getting it to be a barrel racer or possibly a jumper. It is very important to listen to the horse. As a rider I also strive to be the best that I can be. This includes listening to criticism and using it to my advantage by learning from it and fixing my problems. I do this by learning from my trainer, my friends, the judges, and my horses. My passions as an ambassador are to spread the word about my favorite brands and to represent them as I work to get a name for myself. Having a good brand to work along with me and my endeavors will be helpful to me as well as to the brand. As I gain popularity, the brands that are supporting me will too. !
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I started buying the Kerrits brand soon after I began riding. I instantly fell in love with the winter clothing. To this day I still love wearing my Kerrits quarter zip and my Kerrits winter riding pants. In the Missouri winters that I must deal with, it is very important to me to have nice, warm clothing to keep me able to ride in nearly any weather. Anot her friend at my university is anot ambassador for Kerrits and after talking with her I realized how nice it would be to have a chance to work with one of my favorite brands. She seems to really enjoy it and I know I would to. Partnering with one of the brands that got me started in my riding career would be a wonderful experience to have.
