Asking the Hard Questions: A Conversation with Noelle Floyd

Asking the Hard Questions: A Conversation with Noelle Floyd

If you’re listening to this podcast, then you probably know the name of the company producing it: Noëlle Floyd. What you might not know, though, is that this is also the name of our CEO and Founder. Noëlle started her namesake business as a personal blog meant to detail her career and experiences in the world of show jumping, and since then it’s become what you know today  - a hub for media, discussion, and education, now in its 11th year.

Caroline Culbertson sat down with Noëlle to talk about the evolution of the industry and sport as she sees it, and the hard questions she’s had to ask herself along the way. This special behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of Noëlle Floyd also dives into:

  • Noëlle’s experience as a working professional in the show jumping world

  • What she learned when she stepped away from being on the competition "hamster wheel"
  • How the tone has shifted in the horse world (mostly for the better)

  • The concept of “social license” and how it fits into the equestrian space

  • The role and responsibility of the media in horse sport

  • A candid conversation about grief 

  • The balance of life and horses, and how to navigate that tension
