Heather Blitz is a Pan Am Gold and Silver medalist and Olympic team member on her self-raised and trained horse Paragon. She is a USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist with distinction. She is Champion of many USDF Regional and National Championships and numerous USEF National Championships, as well as an International Grand Prix competitor including two European nations cup teams. She has been invited and placed top 10 in German CDI5* Grand Prix competitions on self-trained horses. She has trained many horses from breaking in to Grand Prix, many to the USET Team. She is a worldwide clinician and competitor and test rider for international young horse finals. Why did Heather want to partner with Canter Culture? “I not only love to ride in CC breeches but want to spend my whole day in them! They feel amazing, never need adjusting or feel restrictive. They look amazing, they have a wonderful compression factor keeping me in tip-top form and able to concentrate completely on my training. I’m giving all my non-CC breeches to the consignment store!!” 



Ana Daniela “Danie” Siberio started riding at a young age but did not give much thought to Dressage until a fateful visit to Portugal in 2015, where she not only fell in love with the sport but also with the Lusitano horse. That first interaction with Lusitanos sparked a passionate love for the breed and also for the deep-rooted traditions and culture that surround it. Since committing to the sport as a professional rider, Danie has had the privilege of training with Mikala Munter and Ernst Hoyos to develop a new generation of Lusitano sport horses. Her long-term vision is to contribute to building a successful and lasting legacy for the Lusitano breed in the U.S. Now based year-round in Wellington, Florida, Danie manages her business Lusitano Masters out of her five acre training and boarding facility Wellington North Ranch. She is ecstatic to be partnering with Canter Culture, a brand that shares her enthusiasm for bringing new and different trends to the Dressage world.

Jenna grew up riding H/J, even competing through college. She always had an eye for flashy colors in the super traditional English ring, and often felt stifled by the lack of options. Jenna rescued Ranger, her pinto draft cross, as a wild weanling off a Premarin farm. Personal situations resulted in her having to sell him as a 2 year old but 8 years later they were reunited! Now the team are learning Dressage together and enjoying the myriad of colors they’re finally allowed to ride in! “Sassy Cow”, as he’s called around the barn, is still very green but truly loves learning and showing off his high kicks in the turnout. They reside outside of Phoenix, AZ and ride with Feel Good Training of Baughman Ranch. Jenna loves supporting small, women-owned businesses, especially in the equestrian community, so is thrilled to be partnering with Canter Culture

KC McAllister is an equestrian content creator and athlete specializing in hunter/jumpers, but she also enjoys exploring a variety of equine sports. One of her passions is creating equestrian lifestyle content and sharing it with the world, as a way to express her deep love for the equestrian world. Additionally, she finds it incredibly important to serve as a role model for young people of color who have an interest in horses. It brings me great joy to partner with Canter Culture because I strongly believe that our English attire has the potential to transcend traditional styles. I believe that our riding clothes should not only be functional athletic wear, but also serve as a means of making a fashion statement and expressing our individual style preferences.
