Ambassador: PATRICIA HIDALGO
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being an ambassador for a brand that I love is an inspiration for me. A brand is much more than just a name on a clothing line. In the equine industry, it is a coming together of minds, personalities, disciplines - it's an overall mindset and statement regarding your passion for horses. By being an ambassador for Kerrits, I can share my passion with my friends, family, and competitors. I can proudly display my love and my passion for my sport by being an ambassador for quality products. I think it's important to align yourself with products that are high quality to make a statement. My experience with Kerrits would make me proud to advocate your products.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
As a rider, my passion lies in the connection and relationship I have with my mare. I have trained her from off the track (not even knowing how to lunge or go to the right!) to a solid Training Level eventer, and I hope to take her much higher. I absolutely love the sport of eventing and the thrill of cross country combined with the finesse and discipline of dressage and show jumping.
As an amateur who hopes to someday compete at the higher levels, it's important to be as comfortable and effective as possible during my big riding moments. Kerrits clothing has kept me comfortable time and time again - especially in the Florida heat. I am a huge advocate for your clothing line!
What is your connection to Kerrits?
My first experience with Kerrits was actually borrowing a shirt from a friend to ride in. She let me borrow her white, comfortable Kerrits top which I used to compete that day, and I fell in love. Since when was showing in 100 degree heat actually bearable?? The shirt kept me cool, looked nice, and was so comfortable that I quickly started shopping Kerrits merchandise! I bought my shirts in my riding color (teal) and never looked back - Kerrits is my first choice!
