Ambassador: KATHERINE BEACH
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
While being a Kerrits ambassador means creatively showing off your brand on social media, at horse shows, and at clinics, there is much more to being an ambassador in my opinion. An ambassador should be well engaged in your community and the horse community. An ambassador should also be loyal to the company and show leadership skills as well as marketing skills. I think you need the ability to provide good and well constructed feedback to your company while being an effective communicator to Kerrits team and to customers. Being a rider and the face of the Kerrits brand should mean that you respect your horse, other riders, and Kerrits' term and conditions, behind and in front of social media. An ambassador should show integrity, and a love for horses and riders.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
My passion as an ambassador and a rider is being a roll model and connecting with the other riders. I would hope to be influential to the equestrian world and be well engaged with other riders and equine enthusiasts. What I love most about the equestrian community is that we are in our own world where everyone connects and supports each other. I would hope to engage with others, be an inspiration, be an encourager, and be a supporter to riders. I would want to build and grow new relationships online, as well as offline. One of my most important rules for myself is loving all horses and people no matter the circumstance. As an ambassador I would love to be creative with a fun and loving atmosphere on social media while promoting your business and your team with integrity.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I started riding when I was six and my first pair of breeches were from Kerrits, some how I kept those breeches until I was ten. Then when I was about nine, I started competing in Hunter Jumper and my first pair of Khaki breeches were also from Kerrits and I have had them for five years now. I have now been training in dressage for about four years. Because my first OTTB went through and injury and we had to retire him, I've had to train my green horse Oliver. I got Oliver in the summer of 2015, and in 2016 we started competing together, which is when I got my first white dressage breeches from Kerrits as well as some olive breeches. Every time I wear either of those breeches I receive several compliments on them and have actually convinced several of my barn friends to buy some. I love your company so much because everything always fits, and your breeches have survived for what seems like forever with very little aging or tearing and they are unbelievably comfortable and breathable. Over the years I have collected multiple pairs of socks and shirts. I love your brand with a passion and would love to share that passion with the rest of the equine community.
