Mike:  Thank you so much for helping me get through some "red tape" concerning a try-out for the IHSA at the
college my daughter will be attending next Fall.  You pointed me in all the right directions and to the contacts
that could resolve my issue.  It makes me so happy that my daughter will have a chance to ride at college next
year.

Equestrian College Recruiter is a great service. Mike and everyone have been so helpful in choosing the right
fit for me and helping coaches find riders.  I have had much success and multiple contacts from coaches such
as Mount Holyoke, Deleware Valley College, Randolph, Sweet Briar, and many others.  This service has been
working non-stop at my benefit and helping me through this stressful and important time in my life.

Just wanted you to know that St. Andrews got Jake.  I drove down to Green Cove Springs and met Brittany and
her mom and watched Jake work.  He came up to St. Andrews two weeks ago for a trial period and he has been
wonderful!  We are thrilled to have him in our dressage program and Brittany and her mom seem very happy
with his new home.
Thank you so much for letting us know about him and for providing this service for owners and for colleges!
Sincerely,
Peggy

Hello,
I just wanted to give you a much appreciated thank you, for helping me find the college with which I will be
attending this fall, Converse.  Converse is an amazing school where I know am I going to feel right at home
while also getting a great education.  Then on top of all that, I will be able to do what I love most while also
attending school, and that's being able to ride at the college level on the Converse Equestrian team.  
Something I've only ever dreamed of but thanks to you, it has come true.  Once again thank you.
Sincerely,
Mattie Martin

Mike,
Thanks for all of your help arranging the donation of Trademark to Judson College. He is fabulous and we love
him already!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the exposure your website, equestriancollegerecruiter.com,
has given me.  The site has allowed me to showcase my skills and be seen by Converse College in South
Carolina.  Without it, I would not have had the chance to meet and speak with them and schedule a weekend to
ride in front of their coaches.  I will keep you updated as to what happens!
Ashlee Rioux,

As equestrian program director for Converse College, I want to thank you for your invaluable assistance in
helping us launch and grow a competitive equestrian team.  Your rider profiles are a great way to find
prospective students who will be a good match for Converse College.  We look forward to continued effective
collaboration with your web site.

Dear Mike and Bridget,
Sewanee is thrilled to be a part of this fantastic web site!  I enjoyed hearing about how it all started and think
you are on to
something great.  With so many prospective student riders out there and many colleges and universities to
choose from, this is a great tool to help bring them together so that riders can find the right school and riding
program.
I am looking forward to continuing to work with you in the future!
Thank you!

Mike,
I just wanted to say thanks for helping us find such a wonderful donation horse.  Oliver is perfect and his owner
was a joy to deal with.  Your web site is a fantastic tool for bringing teams and people together!  
Thanks again,

Up until late last year I didn't think I wanted to go to college. I was half way through my senior year, and I had
absolutely no plan. I had filled out my applications and what not to various schools, but there was nothing really
drawing me in. One day a good friend of mine, Bridget Imparato, told me about a site that I could post videos
and a profile of my riding career on to help schools with riding teams find me. So I posted my profile on
equestriancollegerecruiter.com and within a month I had schools contacting me about being on their teams.
When I realized that I could continue to ride and show while at school I became open to the idea of going to
college.
Thanks to
equestriancollegerecruiter.com I have been asked to consider participating on many NCAA
riding teams such as Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and the University of Tennessee Martin. The equestrian
college recruiting site is great, and has opened many doors to my future.  -Staisha Bejarano, Sarasota, Fl

Hi Bridget,
This is Sara, from NC. I wanted to let you know that Ripple has settled in wonderfully and we just adore him! We’
ve used him in  a couple of team lessons and he’s been a real gentleman and is such a happy little guy! We
appreciate all your  help with this donation.  I was first made aware of your web site and the potential donation
of Ripple through an email you sent out to the IHSA coaches. The site is really well put together and I think you
are doing a great service. Keep up the good work!  I know the UNC Equestrian Team will continue to monitor
your web site for future donation options.
Thanks again for all your help!

This site is great it will really make putting teams together much easier for everyone.  I'm really excited about it.  
If you need any help with Dressage I'm the President of Region O of the Intercollegiate Dressage Association
and could answer questions or at least pass them on to our national president Beth.
Good luck,

Hi, Bridget,
Thanks for sending this website info along.  I will sure check into it!  This is a great service to students and
coaches alike.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, summer has been busier than school so far!
I would be happy to include a link to recruiting web-site on ours.  I don't personally know how to do this, but my
student that is in charge of the wed-site will be in this weekend so hopefully she can get it done while she is
here.  The wed site is really looking good!
Thanks,
