Mustang Leadership Partners, LLC
Present on-site during the World Equine Expo™ as title sponsor of the EQUUS Film Festival, the Mustang Leadership Partners, LLC will provide an unique demonstration programming schedule. Mustang Leadership Partners, LLC provides girls and young women with an opportunity to develop, practice, and improve relationship skills, responsibility, social accountability, self-awareness and self-confidence through interactions with Mustangs.

Students from Mustang Leadership Partners, an after school program for girls of Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, will present a brief demonstration of the mustangs with whom they have developed a very close relationship over the years. They will tell their personal story of this incredible long lasting friendship. These wild horses adopted from the BLM have shown the students how to step out of their comfort zones and become strong, assertive leaders. As one of the students says, “bonding with mustangs has helped me through struggles when I feel lost and out of place. Seeing this mutual friendship grow and flourish brings a lot of hope to my heart.”
