Ambassador: ECO MARTINSON
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador is a very important role. It means I have the opportunity to share my love of Kerrits products. Kerrits apparel has been a part of my equestrian life since I began riding at age 1 1/2. These products don't wear out and are flexible to fit a rider's needs perfectly. They have provided me more confidence, since I am comfortable in them. My closet is full of Kerrits shirts and jodhpurs, and we constantly go back to the store to buy more!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I have many passions as a rider and ambassador. First of all, I love spending as much time as possible at the barn. The energy and excitement of being around horses never gets old. I feel like everytime I see a horse, I go back into that "horse crazy little girl" state again. When riding, every jump has the same exciting feeling like butterflies in my stomach. Barn friends are some of the closest friends I have, because we have been through so much together! We are brought together by our passion of horses. Just jumping on a lesson pony and riding around with my friends is sometimes all we need to start laughing and having fun! After lessons, I tend to always wear my Kerrits apparel out in public the rest of the day. They are so comfortable that I don't bother changing after riding.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My first experience with Kerrits was when I was 1 1/2. I started riding some rescue horses that my mom rescued, and she bought me my first pair of Kerrits breeches then. I have always loved how the pants come with carrot seeds! We even started growing the carrots in our backyard for our horses!
