Ambassador: HALLEY GUPTIL
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador means a lot of different things to me. It means that I share my love for this product with the people that I love. It means that I draw attention to this product. It means that I demonstrate how these products are better than the ones next to them on the rack at tack shops.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
My main passion with riding is not the ribbons, but rather the small accomplishments. Nothing makes me happier then when I can feel something that I have been working on finally come together. It can really be anything, from getting lead changes in one piece to your horse finally standing still in the cross-ties. The success ranges from things I do with my personal horse -Clark, a 7 year old Holsteiner whom I adore-, to my little sisters naughty pony, to helping around the stable I board at, to helping the camp kids.
My passion as an ambassador is high quality products, at a reasonable price. I want everyone to know you can look nice, without having to spend large sums of money.This is what originally drew me to Kerrits(and kept me hooked) and I believe that it will draw others in.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My first experience with Kerrits started with a search for a French Blue hunt coat. I struggled to find one that was not insanely expensive and that actually fit me. A week or two later, I stumbled upon the Kerrits Competitors Koat. I ordered it and a week later it was in my hands and off to a show with me. The weather ended up being less than desirable, with rain the first day and extreme heat the next. After riding all day in the rain in my Competitors Koat the material had yet to soak through and become water logged. Due to the fact that I was (and still am) obsessed with my gorgeous French Blue Koat, I decided to ride in the 101 degree weather in it. Hunt Coats had been waved yet I refused ti take mine off. But it was nit even an issue for me because the light material did not make the hot weather any worse. When I got home from the show I proceeded to order the Cinder and White Koat and the Black and White coat. I have received compliments on my French Blue Koat at every show I have attended and it has become commonly known as my trademark. Many people from my barn have gone out and have bought Kerrits Competitors Koats because of how often I brag about mine.
