Ambassador: EMMA WHISMAN
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
The Kerrits brand is one of the very few brands of breeches that I am able to ride in. The fit and material of the breeches are perfect for my picky taste in pants and whenever I need new breeches I always look for Kerrits. An Ambassador can have fun showing off the brand on and off the horse and I believe that would be quite easy for me as it is already my brand of choice. I believe that as an ambassador I would greatly benefit both myself and the company.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
When riding I am really just focused on working on my horse and myself, no outside worries are in my realm of perspective when on my horse. As a rider I want for only myself and my horse to progress, if my show score proves to be better than last time, or if I can find some point of my ride that I improved on, that I am overjoyed. As an ambassador I would just be improving upon my already positive view towards the product. I will have more of an opportunity to enjoy the product while riding and to advertise for the company.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I have always been very picky with riding breeches. For the longest time I dreaded showing because I knew I would have to put on the horribly uncomfortable death trap pants. One day my mom brought home some Kerrits breeches, I was upset to begin with because I knew from experience that I didn't enjoy wearing breeches. However, after trying them on, it was like a whole new world opened up in front of me. (cheesy I know) But really, I know find it immensely more comfortable to ride in breeches than jeans. Kerrits introduced me to a world of high quality, comfortable breeches. That was about 8 years ago, but I still find that Kerrits brand is my brand of choice when purchasing new breeches because the slip on style (no zipper or buttons) and the material of the pants is perfect for my picky attitude.
