Ambassador: EMMA CHRISTMAN
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Kerrits is honestly one of my favorite riding brands, when I have the option to, I always buy Kerrits. Being an ambassador for Kerrits would be awesome because I am always talking to other riding people/friends about what I'm wearing, and I always tend to talk about Kerrits. To me being an ambassador is being loyal to a company and being able to be proud of what you're wearing, and know that your not just wearing clothes, your wearing something that looks great and means something to you.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
My passions as a rider currently fall into a jumper category. I am retraining an OTTB to be my jumper and hopefully compete at the USHJA Amateur H/J regional championships within the next few years. There aren't a lot of riders from Maine and I want to prove that you can come from anywhere and become your dream and be successful. I came from a small farm in a small town and I want to prove that you don't have to be a millionaire to achieve your goals, and that the underdog still has a chance. Being an ambassador would tie into this well into this, showing that companies aren't ignoring underdogs.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My first experience with Kerrits was about 5 years ago with the contest done with Young Rider Magazine to design your own riding tights. I entered and started looking into the brand itself and fell in love. That year I decided I wanted Kerrits show clothing, so I purchased a white show shirt and absolutely loved it! I have been using cotton and hated it, but as soon as I tried on the Kerrits shirt I found I wasn't sweating buckets and dealing with sticky clothing on a hot day. Now my show shirts are still Kerrits! Last year I discovered the ice-fil shirts and immediately bought one, (the one I'm wearing in the picture). The ice-fil is by far my favorite shirt to wear anywhere, especially riding!
