Ambassador: AMANDA CONNERTON
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
I am hooked on Kerrits! The flattering and durable design, the color options, the attention to detail and clear knowledge of the designers on my needs as a rider, the ease of cleaning, not to mention the reasonable prices, are all things that keep me coming back. I have shared this love of Kerrits with many riding and showing friends, and being an ambassador allows for more sharing of the love!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am passionate about my Gypsy Vanner mares. I am constantly impressed by their attitudes, their willingness and their versatility. My mares are my heart and, through social media, expos and showing, I have had the opportunity to spread my love of this breed with many others.
Another one of my passions is breed showing and the breed community I have found through showing my Gypsy Vanners. The community is small, but growing, and very friendly. We are a family of competitors and I love it! I have made so many good friends through this breed and I even attend shows all over the country when I'm not showing -- just to see my friends.
I love the way that horses can bring people together and grow you as a person. I am constantly learning from my horses, and learning from the people around me.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I bought my first pair of Kerrits Riding Tights seven years ago when I was eighteen year old, and I still have the same pair in fabulous condition - despite seven years of wearing them... and I still get compliments on them! That pair of breeches speaks to the durability and lasting design of the products that Kerrits produces, and was the start of my loyalty to the brand.
