The Leadline Podcast will be hosting an in-person networking mixer for equestrians at Equine Affaire in Columbus, Ohio. The event will provide a unique avenue to create connections amongst horse industry professionals during one of the largest equine expos in America.

The mixer will occur on Friday, April 8, 2022 in Ohio Expo Center’s Voinovich Building, and will feature 90 minutes of networking with fun activities such as prize drawings, an Instagram photo wall, guest swag bags, and more. Doors open at 4:45pm with networking beginning at 5:00pm.

This will be The Leadline’s second in-person networking mixer to be hosted by owner and podcast host, Mandee Flanders. The premiere event launched in November 2021 in Springfield, Massachusetts, where attendees were met with immediate business opportunities:

“Knowing networking isn’t our strong suit, we were hesitant to attend, but we had a blast talking with everyone,” says Elizabeth Haynes of iRide Equestrian Apparel in Ware, MA. “We were so pleased to see immediate results with an order coming in from an attendee the very next day (and has been a repeat customer since the event as well). We HIGHLY recommend attending!”

Another Massachusetts attendee, Sally Batton of Athletic Equestrian, shares, “Mandee Flanders’ virtual and live horse business networking sessions are an essential part of any equine entrepreneur’s ‘briefcase’. The live networking sessions are a beehive of sharing ideas, passing of business cards, eating/drinking, and fun raffles! I highly recommend anything that Mandee dreams up!”

Onsite sponsorship opportunities are available to equine brands seeking additional marketing exposure. Brands may contribute to prize giveaways and swag items, or sponsor engaging marketing opportunities such as the Instagram Photo Wall. Sponsorship details can be requested by contacting Mandee at

Tickets to attend this event start at $5 (plus online processing fees) or $10 at the door. Due to limited space, advance sign up is strongly encouraged. To purchase tickets securely through Strider, visit **Equine Affaire admission not included.**
