Ambassador: CIERA CAREY
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
It means promoting a product that I feel comfortable and confident in. Being an ambassador also means motivating and inspiring other riders as well as connecting with them over the love and belief in Kerrits.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am just now starting light training with my 4 year old Swedish Warmblood, "Sötnos Stewart (Fits). We are now working on dressage principles such as collection. This gelding is the most maginificent learner I have ever come into contact with. I received Fits as a gift from my (now) late boyfriend when Fits was a yearling. Shortly after receiving Fits, my boyfriend had passed away suddenly from an unknown health related issue. It was a tragic time.
Fits was, and has remained, the true light in my life. He inspires me with his kind heart and motivation to learn and please. He motivates me with his desire to succeed.
My passion as a rider is to become a Grand Prix showjumper and dressage rider. With Fits, this is a real possibility- and being a Kerrits Ambassador will help me feel confident, always promoting and wearing the brand that makes me feel like a confident rider.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I fell in love with Kerrits when I had moved to Lexington, KY and was working for a Grand Prix dressage rider, Reese Koffler. My wardrobe was seriously lacking comfy breeches that actually fit me. I went onto SmartPak and browsed around and came across the Kerrits breeches. I fell in love with the Kerrit logo but also with the reviews. People were raving about them! I ordered 3 pairs of the lightweight summer breeches and a pair of the winter breeches and fell in love!!! I love how they fit. They're easy to wash and care for. The winter breeches are amazing! I have never worn winter breeches so comfy that also fit me well. I went back and ordered matching shirts. I found that I felt so confident in these breeches and shirts- I was sitting taller in my saddle and felt capable of anything. I love how they make me feel. I am never without my Kerrits!!!
