Bri Noble is the founder and owner of Mulatto Meadows, an equestrian business dedicated to expanding the accessibility of riding and horsemanship to communities historically excluded from the equestrian world. Bri is especially passionate about introducing horsemanship and riding to youth of color and economically disenfranchised populations.
Bri has ridden and trained in both English and Western disciplines including jumping, eventing, ranch versatility, and Trail Trails. She believes that no matter the focus, whether it’s trail riding or show jumping, true horsemanship is a language that transcends all disciplines. By putting the needs of the horse first, equestrians can grow both personally and professionally to reach their true potential.
Bri recently garnered international attention when she rode her horse Dapper Dan at an Oakland, California Black Lives Matter protest over the death of George Floyd. The image of Bri atop her 17.1 hand horse has become a beacon of hope for people worldwide.
Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area’s East Bay, Bri is a lifelong horse enthusiast whose love of horses began with summers at the barn with her big sister. At the age of 15 she was given her first horse, an abused off the track thoroughbred she renamed Midnight Affair. Bri has dedicated her life as a trainer to rehabilitating abused horses into “bombproof” mounts, and then finding loving homes for them with responsible horse owners. Bri is the mother to two-year-old Genesis Joan, a budding horsewoman herself, and engaged to fellow horseman Adolfo Gutierrez.
