Horst Floth (24 July 1934 in Karlsbad - 6 October 2005 in Feldafing) was a West German bobsledder who competed in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Competing in two Winter Olympics, he won silver medals in the two-man event both in 1968 and 1972.

Floth also won a gold medal in the two-man event at the 1970 FIBT World Championships in St. Moritz.

A hotelier when he was not in bobsleigh, Floth died from cancer in 2005.
