Ambassador: TAMMY OPPERMAN
What does being a Kerrits Ambassador mean to you?
Being an ambassador allows me to spread the word to my students that Kerrits makes a great product that lasts at a great price. I proudly wear my Kerrits in the show arena even at FEI.
What are your passions as a rider and ambassador?
I am passionate about correct classical riding and making the horse a true partner with its rider. I strive to listen to my horses so that I have a truly happy partner in the show arena and out. I teach me students to listen to their horses as they usually will tell them exactly what they are doing correctly and not doing correctly. The horse is by far the best teacher of riding. I love being able to share a product that with my students that does its job at a good value and holds up to use. Kerrits does exactly that.
What is your connection to Kerrits?
I got my first Kerrits in the mid 90's shortly after I graduated college. My first pair of Kerrits tights was a pair of green houndstooth with the suspender straps on it. I still have that pair of pants. I don't wear them much as I mostly ride in full seats now and these just have knee patches. I now ride almost exclusively in Kerrits breeches and tights. They hold up to the stress I put on them wearing them all day as a professional trainer. I have found that the white sit tight full seats wash better than most breeches for that polished show ring look. I am also in love with the contrasting seat.
