“I have always rode in Kerrits since they fit me great and offer great value and look good too” I first became and Ambassader 3 years ago and a team member two years ago. Working with the Kerrits people has been great and they are the most responsive group I have ever dealt with always trying to come up with something to help riders feel more comfortable and look good doing it”
Lexi competed in the first EAP program offered, the first FEI nations cup for jumpers finishing as the top PA rider. and has enjoyed success throughout her riding career. She is one of the most highly sponsored junior riders in the country appearing in ads in the US and Europe. She does not use a trainer at home, cleans all her own stalls and takes care of her own horse on the road with her mom and dad in tow. A real family affair.
