Ambassador: LINDSEY WALCZAK
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
As an already successful ambassador for four other companies, I can confidently say that I represent the companies that I am passionate about. Being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean representing a company whose clothing creations I adore and can effortlessly represent via social media. Living in such an amazing part of the country I am surrounded by some of the best riders in the world at clinics and shows; I absolutely love to be the fashion forward girl who everyone is asking "where did you get that?!" Being a Kerrits Ambassador would mean getting to answer that question on a daily basis! I'm the girl you'll see in the grocery store wearing a Kerrits jacket. I'm the girl you'll see at the office pulling off breeches with high heels. I'm also the girl you'll see at a Clayton Fredricks clinic with fellow equestrians doting over my Kerrits houndstooth tights.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
Horses, riding, being an equestrian...it's not what I do, it is who I am. While I'm not a professional rider, I take my riding seriously and am always looking to take myself to the next level. When I'm at work, I'm counting down the minutes of daylight and calculating just how much time I'll have to ride when I get home. I'm up before the sun is and sometimes you'll catch me riding in the moonlight. I may have to be an adult for part of my day, but it's what allows me to pursue my passion during the rest of it. As an ambassador I can promise to bring that very passion to the clothing I wear.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
When I think of Kerrits, I think back to the 12 year old me who begged my mom to buy me this green fleece vest with black horses on it for Christmas one year. I remember opening that box and being thrilled about getting that vest. I wore it year after year until I grew out of it, but I'll never forget it! It served me well many winters in Pennsylvania growing up.
Since then, I've had several articles of Kerrits clothing which I've grown to love just as much. It would mean so much to me to be able to represent a company that I've had such a connection with for so many years!
