When citizens of Oakland, California, witnessed Brianna Noble and her 7-year-old Appaloosa gelding Dapper Dan walking through the Black Lives Matter protest for George Floyd on May 29, they stopped in their tracks to take pictures and raise fists in solidarity.
This wasn’t Noble’s first protest, but it was the first time the lifelong equestrian attended one on horseback. When photos from the event went viral on the internet, the 25-year-old got conformation of the impact she was hoping to achieve, one that sparked the opportunity for dialogue and change. Noble became a public sensation overnight and is using her newfound platform to fight for equality in equestrian sport and beyond.
Tori Repole guest hosts this interview with Noble where she discusses race in the horse world and Noble's non-profit, Humble.
