Ambassador: ASHLEE FRANKEN
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
To me, being a Kerrits ambassador means I am promoting a quality brand that I trust and have used for over 12 years.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
Since I have ridden and owned horses my entire life, you could say horses are a part of my blood. There’s nothing more freeing than galloping through a cross-country course and flying over jumps, nothing more satisfying than feeling a horse bring their back up, relax through the poll/jaw, and really get into the “dressage zone.” It’s hard to focus on these amazing feelings while in uncomfortable riding clothes. Kerrits gives me the comfort to focus on increasing my partnership and skill level with my horse.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I received the first pair of periwinkle fleece Kerrit’s breeches for Christmas when I was 13. They were very comfortable, warm, and durable. I still own and wear them to this day. A few years ago, I decided to invest in a pair of the Ice-fil tech tights for summer riding and discovered that super-comfortable breeches can have massive pockets that don’t impede riding. I have many pairs of Kerrit’s breeches now and haven’t been disappointed once. My crossover breeches keep me secure in the saddle, even while riding on a wet saddle, and my tan knee-patch tights keep me looking spiffy in the show ring.
