inspiring positive futures through horses.
In 2017, Brianna Noble founded Mulatto Meadows along with Humble, an Oakland-based equine program dedicated to positively impacting youth from disenfranchised communities. Through enriching learning experiences, Humble uses horses as a medium to inspire bright futures.
Peer-reviewed research has proven that equestrian programs have significant benefits on child development––improving self-awareness, responsibility, goal-directed behavior, and relationship skills.
our core programs
humble in the city
Humble in the City brings horses directly to children in nature-deprived, urban areas. These one-day events ignite curiosity and appreciation for nature and highlight the importance of civic engagement.
humble on the ranch
Humble creates multi-session programs tailored to the comfort level, time commitment, and goals of the students. Through an 8-week course, kids learn the foundation of riding, husbandry, and the responsibility that comes with the territory.
HUMBLE EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIVE
Those that receive a Humble Horsemanship Certificate of Completion and want to continue will have the opportunity to join our long-term riding program. Riders must maintain a 3.0 GPA, complete volunteer hours, write age-appropriate essays, and receive quarterly reviews. Ariat is currently sponsoring this program.
Our vision is to change the face of equine culture
and inspire positive futures through horses.
our new ranch in castro valley
Our centrally located ranch is pioneering sustainably raising livestock within the confines of urban environments.
Our model of sustainable feeding and waste management allows our ranch to thrive, which enables us to in turn impact our communities through fun, equine experiential learning, and agricultural education, which for most inner-city youth and families is a world they have never had the opportunity to view or experience.
Another reason that we are so excited to have our own ranch is that we will be able to make an even bigger impact through expanded programming. In addition to our current Humble on the Ranch offerings, we are proud to offer programming specifically focused on raising cultural awareness of the many global traditions of horsemanship, to spark a sense of belonging amongst BIPOC students and allies.
