Ambassador: BROOKE SHUTTLEWORTH
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean a lot to me for a couple of reasons. Mainly because everything and everywhere I have gotten in the horse world has been because I have worked really hard, not because my parents have paved the way with their cash which is something I am very proud of. I am bringing home my first horse that I have ever owned on Thanksgiving and that is something I am truly blessed and proud about. I love being able to represent brands, be able to have my horsey convos with people, and bring a smile to people faces. Being a Kerrits ambassador would really mean a lot to me and I would love to be able to represent a very well respected brand!(:
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am currently a junior in high school so a goal I have for the near future is to excel my skills and become part of an equestrian team in college. At the moment, I mentor kids (middle and elementary students) who are underprivileged, and show them the ropes about caring for and riding horses. It's kind of like a therapy session and I absolutely love it. It's so cool to bring a smile to a kids faces who really have a hard life. So I constantly try bettering myself as a person as well as a rider. As for the ambassador part, I just love being involved and would be willing to do anything you guys throw my way with a smile!
What is your connection to Kerrits?
The first time I ever saw the Kerrits brand was when I decided to bring my non horsey mother to the equine affair a few years ago (bad idea, she took pictures of every single horse we laid eyes on). I was riding my lease horse at the time the day before the equine affair started and as I was getting into the car my pants just completely ripped. With that being said it was time for some more pairs of pants! we started looking and after going through about 20 stores I finally found the most comfortable pair of pants I ever put on my body. So of course, I had to buy 3 pairs and get my free headband! Ever since then I have just loved the brand Kerrits and had Kerrits items lined up on my Christmas and birthday lists!
