Dr. Piper Klemm, publisher of The Plaid Horse, will return to the The Equestrian College Advisor Live show on March 7, 2022 at 6:00 pm CST.
The Equestrian College Advisor offers college counseling tailored to riders of all ages, levels, and aspirations. Randi C. Heathman is the Equestrian College Advisor. She is an educational consultant with extensive experience in higher education and the equestrian sport. In the early 2000s, she was the senior assistant director of admission at Albion College while working with Albion’s equestrian team as a mentor and recruiter as the advisor to the team.
Heathman offers academic advising, college/university list development, career and major advising, essay writing support, assistance with riding recruitment video preparation, admission interview preparation and guidance related to coach contacts, financial aid support and scholarship identification, and speaking engagements on topics relating to the college admission process and collegiate riding.
On ECA Live, Heathman examines a variety of topics related to college education, collegiate riding, horse showing, and more. Klemm had an appearance on ECA Live in 2021, where she discussed her career journey, career options in the horse world, her college courses, and the importance and power of education and opportunity seeking.
“I learn something from Piper every time I speak with her and I’m so excited to hear about the unique courses she’s created for this summer, as well as continue to talk about our shared interest in women’s entrepreneurship,” says Heathman.

“Training yourself how to look for opportunity—that’s a huge part of my courses, a huge part of my life, a huge part of what I preach all the time. You can practice getting better at opportunity,” says Klemm. “The more educated you are, the more opportunity you see, and the more opportunity you see, the more you can choose which opportunities you want to take and ones you don’t […] On the opportunity side, there are no limits. You can learn for free, you can take that initiative—you can read, you can listen to podcasts, you can watch live streams, you can stand at the ring and watch the best trainers.”
