Kelly is predominantly a show horse rider who competes successfully at a state and national level, and a long time BARE lover. We love having Kelly on our team and watching the partnership with her horse KL Embers continue going from strength to strength.
"I have been a customer of BARE since the very early days and fell in love with the product from the first purchase. BARE is an innovative company that supports so many competitors and so many events around Australia, I feel very fortunate to be able to provide some level of support back to BARE through being an ambassador."
Quick questions with Kelly
WHAT EQUESTRIAN ACHIEVEMENT ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
I’m proud that I ride my beautiful horse KL Embers myself in and out of the show ring. We have formed such a beautiful partnership together which has allowed us to place highly at state and national level, one of our highlights being the highest placed owner rider at Grand Nationals 2021.
HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED?
Staying motivated is easy when you enjoy what you do. I love taking the time to build a relationship through spending quality time together other than just riding. Motivation for me certainly comes from a love for the animal. Having clear goals is also another way I stay motivated. Early in the year I plan the competitions I will attend so I can work out exactly when our breaks will be and when I need my horse peaking in performance.
WHAT IS YOUR BEST COMPETITION DAY TIP OR ADVICE?
Be prepared and ready early. There is nothing worse than the panic of running late. I would prefer to be ready an hour before I need to be than stressing myself unnecessarily by running late! It makes for a more relaxed atmosphere which certainly will be transferred to the horse.
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR GOAL OR PLAN YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT IN 2022?
I hope to qualify for Grand Nationals 2023, and continue training hard to improve. I have a young dressage pony that will be getting broken in towards the end of 2022 which I am also excited about. I look forward to starting training her and commencing competition in 2023.
WHICH ARE YOUR FAVOURITE BARE PRODUCTS AND WHY?
Thermofit tights as I love the feel and warmth given from such a lightweight material. I wear my thermofits constantly! Such an innovative concept that BARE has certainly perfected. Any of the jackets – being machine washable is such a huge bonus It’s also hard to go past the competition tights. Such a fantastic range of colours available to suit any coloured horse and any discipline.
