Ambassador: RACHEL DOWLESS
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador means that I could officially represent a brand that I love to wear.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
Ever since I was five years old, I have had a love for horses. I have taken many lessons under many instructors and been to many shows and clinics that have all confirmed my love for the sport. Above all, I love eventing because of how it combines all three disciplines and I feel I am a better rider because of it. Currently I am competing at novice level with a 14 hand pony I started myself. One of my goals for my riding is to move up to training level this summer with my pony. Currently I am looking for a new partner who could take me into the upper levels of eventing. It is important to me that we grow together, I don't want a made horse. I love sharing my story about my pony that was rescued from a backyard dog pen and is now successfully competing at novice within a period of 2 years. Being an ambassador for a brand that I know and love to wear would be a great addition to what I do.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
Since I am very tall and thin, I have had lots of trouble finding riding clothes, especially breeches, that fit me and are affordable. I found Kerrits and was immediately thrilled with the comfort and fit of the breeches. Ever since then, I have almost exclusively bought and ridden in Kerrits clothing. Even today, I am still amazed with the feeling and fit of every Kerrits product I have tried. They are my go-to clothing for both schooling and shows. I would love to represent a company that I already know and love like Kerrits.
