Ambassador: LILLIAN WHITE
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean the world to me. I love Kerrits products, and I share that with other riders and friends. I love the comforts and look of Kerrits clothing and I would be honored to "officially" be able to say they are the best. This year my goal is to make it to AEC's with my new horse. I'd love to be able to say Kerrits is in my corner when I get there! I will also be at USEA Young Rider camp and when I get my qualifying scores for AEC's I'm hoping to also have time for USEA Young Rider regionals. I wear my Kerrits everywhere... even when I'm chillin with Doug Payne. I already wear Kerrits and would love to get to talk about how I stay comfortable and warm in the winter and look good and cool in the summer with other riders and teammates to spread the word on how awesome Kerrits is!
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
Riding is my passion. I love to share that with other youth. While I am only 13 I know what it's like to look up to "the big girls". I try to be positive and have a smile with other young riders and pass along something positive at shows. When you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good you ride well. I like to look professional when I ride. Mom always says you dress for the job you want, and I want to be a professional rider that young riders look up to, and feel like they can approach. I feel like my Kerrits help me stay comfortable and let me move. A huge plus is the sun shirts. I love those. When I was 10 I was diagnosed with stage 2 melanoma. I have to stay covered or slathered in sunblock (I don't like sunblock), so I ride in sunshirts. Our skin is so important and I try to let others know that the sun shirts really do help. Being an ambassador would help me share that a bit more to fellow riders of all ages.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I am short. Go ahead laugh, it's ok! When you are a child of below average height it's hard. When your young and just want to look like the pros it's even harder. One day my mom came home with a pair of Kerrits breeches and I fell in love. I looked like the pros, I felt like the pros and that encouraged me to work like the pros. Now my dresser is full of Kereits clothing, but my favorite are the Kerrits fleece performance tights, and my black icefil tights. With those two things I can do anything year round. I wish I could show in my black icefils, but I'll just have to do it in my full seat whites!
