Beat the heat with Kerrits’ cool new line of show and schooling attire
A little history here. Back in the dark ages, show attire consisted of heavy, lined wool jackets, pure cotton breeches and ratcatchers. Cotton’s lack of ability to absorb moisture meant riders ended their show day in sweaty, sticky clothes. (I know, not a pretty picture. But, the truth.)
There were no technical fabrics, no cotton blends. Any rider from just a few short decades ago can remember literally peeling their breeches off after a show.
Enter Kerri Kent. Three decades ago Kerri, an avid rider and windsurfer, founded Kerrits Performance Equestrian Apparel. Her experience with other outdoor sports familiarized her with technical fabrics, materials, and styles which she used to develop the innovative in-saddle line for riders. Kerrits’ core foundation is clothes that are comfortable in the saddle, fit well, and move with the rider rather than restricting. In developing the line, Kerri helped revolutionize the sport, and made life in the saddle forever better.
Kerrits is dedicated to creating inclusive products that are available to every rider regardless of size. All products are tested in the saddle by their employees, so each size from extra small to 2X is sure to fit many body types perfectly. This perfect fit, along with the stretchy exterior fabric, generally lined by a super soft interior, provides the ultimate in comfort.
Kerrits first offering for riders was Performance Tights. At the time, no one else made riding tights. But that was only the beginning. Over the past four seasons Kerrits has added some “can’t live without” products that advance the goal of always keeping you comfortable and confident in the saddle.
