Ambassador: MARITA WASSMAN
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
I LOVE Kerrits products, and recommend them to everyone. Comfort, long wearing, easy to wash, great performance. Love the variety of fabrics that all REALLY work for the weather intended. Polartek Windpro fleece are the warmest ever and my favorite is Griptek. I am always prepared and comfortable all day in Kerrits performance equestrian apparel whether in the saddle schooling therapy horses, ground driving for our therapist or jogging along side a horse to help our riders. Even if I have business meetings away from the barn Kerrits help to give me the professional edge.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am passionate about training riders of all capabilities to understand horse movement and behavior for safe and happy partnerships. I love my job as director of a equine assisted activities and therapy program. Working with the combination of individuals with disabilities and the gentle nature of horses is a blessing everyday. I continue on-going education, not only to maintain my instructor certification but for personal growth and to advance in the discipline of dressage.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I really don't remember when I first purchased Kerrits apparel; maybe 12-15 years ago. I know it was a pair of Sit Tight Supreme breeches ... that I still have! Fit, style, and performance had me hooked immediately. I have only purchased Kerrits since then. The carrot seeds are clever and made an impression to the product line too!
