OAKLAND — There was something you don’t usually see in Deep East Oakland — horses.

Brianna Noble, who gained worldwide fame after riding her horse Dapper Dan during an Oakland Black Lives Matter protest last May, brought him and her other horse Plateado Tuesday morning to meet community members during a food giveaway at the East Oakland Collective on MacArthur Boulevard and 78th Street.

“We thought if maybe we could just bring the horses out, we could cause a couple of people to have some smiles on their faces and create some positive experiences with the kids,” she said.

“It’s so amazing to have Brianna bring the horses down to our food giveaway. It has brought a smile to our guest’s faces,” said Candice Elder, the collective’s founder and executive director, who greeted Noble and her horses on the group’s largest distribution day of the week.

Food insecurity, especially during the pandemic, is a real issue, and the collective is doing its part to help feed the community by serving food Monday through Friday.

On a warm spring-like day with blue skies, Noble’s mother, Michelle Noble, took pictures and passed out hand sanitizer as parents and children met the horses. She said the work her daughter is doing to bring horses and horse management skills to underserved youth through her Humble program is amazing.

“I’m incredibly proud. It’s been really overwhelming to watch the amount of success and attention she’s garnered just doing what she loves,” Michelle Noble said.

Last year, Brianna Noble, founder and head trainer at Mulatto Meadows in Briones, founded Humble, an Oakland-based equine program dedicated to positively impacting youth from disenfranchised communities. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, she put the program on pause, so she was glad to have the opportunity to expose local children to horses at the collective’s event.

“Everybody remembers the first time they got to touch or handle a horse,” Noble said. “We’re just trying to create some of those memories for people today.”

Bridge: March 6, 2021

“Simple Saturday” columns focus on improving basic technique and logical thinking.

You’re declarer at today’s 3NT. West leads the jack of spades, and when North produces a dummy with an ace, he no doubt expects you to make the contract. East discards a diamond, and you take the queen of spades. How do you proceed?

First, count winners. You have three spades, a heart, two diamonds and two clubs. Your only chance for a ninth trick is in hearts. To lead from dummy toward the queen is correct. (Leading the queen — an unsupported honor — would never gain against correct defense.)

PREMATURE

Still, to go to the ace of hearts at Trick Two and return a heart toward your queen would be premature. If East has the king, he will have it later. Play a low heart from both hands. East wins and shifts to the queen of diamonds, and you win and lead a second heart.

As it happens, the king appears from West, and you are safe. You did well to give yourself that extra chance in hearts.

DAILY QUESTION

You hold: S 7 5 3 2 H A 4 3 D 5 3 2 C 6 4 2. The dealer, at your left, opens one heart. Your partner doubles, and the next player bids two hearts. After two passes, your partner doubles again. What do you say?

ANSWER: Partner’s first double was for takeout, asking you to bid. His second double repeats that message and suggests extra strength. Bid two spades. If your partner has what he promises, you should have a chance to win eight tricks.
