Ambassador: GIANNA SBARBARO
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
It would mean a lot to be a Kerrits ambassador because living in Hawaii (where there are no tack stores), I believe I can really help market your products to the growing horse community on the islands. I am a junior equestrian on Oahu, and have an active Instagram profile (feel free to check it out @aloha_equestrian). I believe I could use the Instagram page to help spread awareness about many Kerrits products. Also, living in Hawaii presents challenges when it comes to obtaining the latest apparel and accessories for horse and rider. I love your brand and feel like I could be a good representative for your products on Oahu/the other Hawaiian islands, as well as when I travel to the mainland to pursue my riding career. Besides showing locally, I was a catch rider at WEF and have done other shows on the mainland. Overall, it would mean so much to help draw awareness to your brand by being an ambassador.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
As a rider, my passion is to share the love of riding horses through Pony Club, local horsemanship opportunities, and through my ambitions to ride in college. I am a dedicated horsewomen and have been riding for 10 years. As an ambassador, I seek to share my passion for horses with others as well through Pony Club, volunteering at local ranches, or at horse shows.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I never really had much riding apparel from Kerrits until last year when one of the older riders gave me a bag of "hand-me-down" riding pants and shirts. A few of them were Kerrits products, and once I tried them on, I instantly fell in love with the brand. It is comfy, trendy, and fits me well. Now, whenever I wear my Kerrits shirt, I always get lots of compliments and people asking about where my shirt was from. After I was given the pair of riding pants and a short sleeve shirt, I bought a show shirt from Kerrits, which I always use at every competition as well.
