By Ariana Curcio

EquiVisor‘s newest ambassador is dressage rider and trainer Kristin Posner.  Kristin has a Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training with a minor in Psychology from Georgetown College and M.A. in Sports Psychology from Argosy University.  Kristin has had an eye for Dressage ever since she was little. She has been riding her entire life, or as her mother, Susan would say,“before she was born.”

She trained her first horse through Third Level and won the 2003 ABIC/USDF Region 2 Championships.  In 2004, Kristin showed at Third Level and earned her USDF Bronze Medal at the age of 16. In 2005, her mount Touchée was given some time off to have a foal but in the fall of 2005, was back showing. She was able to show Touchée at Fourth Level in 2006 and worked through to Prix St Georges that fall. In 2007, they earned several Prix St Georges wins as well as a few Prix St Georges freestyle wins. Kristin also received her USDF Silver Medal in 2007 at the age of 18, in addition to being named the United States Dressage Federation’s Youth Volunteer of the Year for 2007.

Currently, Kristin is looking to obtain her USDF Gold Medal and also sits on the MidSouth Eventing and Dressage Association board of directors. She is currently riding, showing and training several horses in Lexington, Kentucky. Additionally, Kristin teaches all kinds of students, mainly adult amateurs, kids and young riders.

Favorite Intrepid product- EquiVisor

“EquiVisor has been a staple for me as a rider, coach & trainer for the last year and a half. I discovered the EquiVisor when I was at a jumper show & when they told me it could fit any helmet, I was sold! Not only is my skin extremely sensitive to the sun, I also cannot wear contacts so I always wear glasses. My EquiVisors have come in handy not only for the sun, but to keep the glare & rain off of my glasses as well. I ride with one even in my indoor arena to cut the glare down! I can’t ride without one now or be without one now!”
