Ambassador: NORINE RATHBONE
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Clothes do make the man. And the woman too. The Kerrits Icefil riding pants are a must for any rider in this hard desert heat. They keep you very cool.
I can also wear them steering the dragons on the lake because they have UV protection built into them as well.
Western or English lifestyles can both benefit from Kerrits Icefil pants.
Proper clothing makes you look good and serves a weather purpose as well. You're an athlete so dress like one for your horse sport. It's a comfort must for both you and the horses.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I'm a 17-year breast cancer survivor and a senior citizen. Life doesn't stop because you're faced with fighting for your life or growing older.
We still ride. No matter what happens to our bodies we never give up our passion for our horses.
As an ambassador I want to promote Kerrits for senior riders. It's important to feel comfortable at our older age. I'm turning 59 and still riding. Kerrits' clothing makes it easy to move around in while I'm still looking stylish.
Yes we are older. We still want to feel good and look good too. We all can't be perfect young models. They do not represent real life. We are the reality of what senior riders should be. We are doing it. We don't always look pretty in the process. Especially as we grow older.
We just want to ride. For the rest of our lives.
As for me, I want to be a senior model for Kerrits. It just makes cents. I'm the perfect fit as a fit senior athlete.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My trainer and mentor pointed me to Kerrits Icefils pants.
Oh my grains! The moment I tried them on I want to buy them all...
I could not believe how durable yet lightweight and comfortable they were. Totally awesome pants! I'd sleep in them too if it wasn't so hot here in Las Vegas.
And because I live in the high desert where Sumer temps can reach 117 my Kerrits keep me cool while I'm looking way cool in them!
In addition to riding horses I also ride water dragons at Lake Las Vegas. Dragon boats! I'm the top steersman (woman) for Dignity Health/St. Rose Hospitals' dragon boat racing program that supports breast cancer cancer for men and women who have no health insurance.
Kerrits Icefils are perfect for me steering the boats. They keep me cool on the lake while providing sunscreen protection. I ride the back of the boats with my horse skills. So why not wear my awesome riding pants on the lake too.
They provide me extreme flexibility because steering requires we stand but bend at the knees to hand ride the boats with a 7-foot oar.
Kerrits. They definitely are healthy for you!
