Ambassador: GABRIELLA ZUPANCIC
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
My mom was my first exposure to Kerrits when I was about 5. She sold Kerrits in her store and mobile unit. I grew up riding in Las Vegas and it is very hot there. I always wore tights and tops from Kerrits because they were best for our climate and they were cute. I recently worked my parents booth at the World Cup and did a lot of ringing up of Kerrits products. I am very familiar with the clothing and have a great time helping sell it in the store and our mobile unit at shows as well.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am very passionate about Hunter/Jumpers. My goal is to be the youngest Olympian and I truly hope that I can achieve my goal one day. My parents and grandparents are very supportive and recently helped me purchase my new horse "Swagger". I was Mid Circuit Champion in my Equitation division in Thermal on him. I also had a great success on my 3 ponies that I used to show. I currently show at rated shows in Children's Hunters, Equitation and am looking forward to starting in the Jumper ring very soon.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
In addition to riding, I love social media, photography, videography, and editing. I think it would be fun to be able to promote Kerrits that way in addition to talking to my friends at shows and barns. I like the idea of being a brand ambassador and having others look to me for the best products available. I would be very excited to start promoting a brand that I feel I have already been promoting for so long. My parents own a tack store and I have been wearing Kerrits since I started riding at about 4 1/2 to 5 years old. My mom would always get the newest styles from Kerrits and I loved the colors. Now I live in my Ice Fil shirts and Cross Over breeches. My mom says I have basically been an ambassador my whole life because once my friends at the barn and shows saw my outfits they would come to the store to buy some for themselves. I would love to continue to promote the brand as an ambassador.
