VT • Katelyn McKenzie

I am very grateful and excited to be the first ambassador for this community. It's been so much fun working on this project and having a chance to learn about so many amazing people and businesses all over the world. The passion that we all share for this lifestyle and the love between horses and riders is truly inspiring. Please say hello when you get the chance, you can also connect with me through Instagram and Facebook. I'm looking forward to meeting you and sharing our adventures! 

Where are you located?

I am incredibly lucky to live in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont and have many opportunities to ride at horse barns all over the state with no shortage of trails throughout the countryside.

How did you get into trail riding?

My love affair with riding began at a young age. I was fortunate enough to ride at various stables, with endless acres of wooded trails on the properties. I remember the feeling of freedom, and experiencing the timeless connection between horse, rider and wilderness. Early on I realized that my childhood affection for horses and riding had grown into a life long passion.

What do you love most about it?

The peacefulness that allows me to be present in the moment, while exploring the beautiful outdoors. I love riding wherever the trail takes me—through canopied forests and woods or a field by the river bed. There is no place I’d rather be than on the back of a horse. 

Why did you become a community ambassador?

I love the ever-growing We Are Trail Riders community. The network spans the globe, connecting us with the ideas and knowledge of like minded people. This community will help ensure that we are good stewards of the trails and will, by example, encourage future generations to become responsible riders.

I'm inspired that We Are Trail Riders is bring together equestrians and outdoor enthusiasts, enlisting a broader group to be the caretakers of the trail riding world we hope to preserve. I look forward to being a part of this amazing family and doing my part to help the community succeed and prosper in it's mission, so that we may all continue doing what we love—trail riding!
