You may have noticed some of your favorite equestrians name dropping or even linking to some of their favorite products. There are many reasons for this, but the one I am touching on today is brand affiliates or brand ambassadors.
Brand Ambassadors/Affiliates don’t get paid for what they do, per se, and they don’t get free products (like say, a sponsorship). Instead, they represent a brand they themselves typically support and they get a custom coupon code and/or link for that brand. If purchases are made through that link/code, they get a commission for those sales.
Different brands handle their ambassador program differently: but typically some will give you credit for purchasing their products, and some will pay out cash.
Important to note is this *could* affect your amateur status if you compete with an organization like USEF. So be sure to do your due diligence before becoming an ambassador!
If you have been thinking of getting into becoming a brand ambassador, you might be looking for brands to partner with to try and make some side income. I am dropping some companies/links below!
Just a side note: don’t try to promote ALL the brands that have an ambassador program available. Pick the ones that most closely align with your product choices and focus on those. This will give you the best return not to mention more credibility because people will see the same names over and over from you, and most likely see you using those products.

Espirit Equestrian was developed after countless purchases of expensive breeches that did not perform as needed. We were tired of paying $100-$200 for breeches that were uncomfortable, did not stay in place, and would become saggy after sitting in a saddle for hours. This was unacceptable and led us to develop the most comfortable riding breeches that perform like you expect!
