Inspired by Black equestrian activist and owner of Mulatto Meadows, Brianna Noble, whose iconic image went viral after she rode her horse through the streets of Oakland during the 2020 Black Lives Matter demonstrations, “Ride Out to Vote” brought together Northern California equestrians of color in a digital video evoking the legendary Pony Express in order to send the message that people’s vote is critical and “we ride with you.”
“Ride Out to Vote” followed a relay of diverse equestrians of color including a para dressage rider, a polo player, and western riders carrying ballots through ranches, grasslands, and mountains, across San Francisco to the Pacific Ocean, and landing in Oakland where Brianna delivered a saddlebag full of ballots.
