“Mike and Bridget – 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!” – Peggy McElveen, St. Andrews Presbyterian College Equestrian Director

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.” – Mattie Martin

“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, 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!” – Sara Hamilton-Conversano UNC Equestrian Team Coach Quail Roost Farm, Inc.

“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. ” – Anne Brzezicki, Director of Equine Laboratories, Equestrian Team Coach Middle Tennesee State University
