Ambassador: CAITLYN BENNETT
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits ambassador not only means representing the riding apparel itself, but the company also. Kerrits is a great company because they provide long-lasting, affordable equestrian clothing, perfect for juniors and young riders like me. Also, they strive to keep a green company, going the extra mile to be sustainable and eco-friendly. I want to be an ambassador because i feel that my knowledge of horses and my love for Kerrits products makes me a suitable candidate for this position. Kerrits give you warm riding pants when it's chilly at the barn and breathable tanks when you are in a sweat in the warm months, which is helpful for me, as i'm at the barn more than I'm not. I feel that as an ambassador I can make Kerrits more popular in the younger generation.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
As a rider my passions are to work hard and set your standards high. By working hard your standards become easier and you can set them higher and achieve anything.I adopted this passion when I adopted my Mustang gelding, Hocus Pocus in 2012, and had train him under-saddle. As an ambassador, I want these to be my passions too, because by working hard, Kerrits can become great and improve their already amazing apparel choices and the company can say they have accomplished their goals. I think the company should set their standards a little higher because by doing so, Kerrits can make even greater products, and create new designs, fits and choices that will bring the company more and more to the top.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My mom bought me a pair of blue houndstooth-pattern Kerrits pants at Dover Saddlery in Alpharetta,Ga. I instantly fell in love with them because they were indestructible and got me through two good years of riding, before I bought even more. The first time I visited the website was last year, when I entered the Junior design Challenge to design a pair of riding tights, and I saw how Kerrits takes the extra step in making the products durable and special, and still using eco-friendly initiative.
