During her student years, Norma attended three summer camps for the study of the German language, of which she has therefore a basic knowledge. Horse-related experiences: After standard training, Norma chose dressage as a specialty . Willing to understand the underlying  process of judging, she attended a Dressage Judges course. She passed the relevant examinations, and having found in the subject a profound interest, decided to proceed on with this activity only, abandoning riding dressage tests herself. She kept “home riding” through the years though, and is now riding at St Geoges level. Norma was appointed GP Judge on 25 Nov 2010, after 12 years long training and experience. Norma is now working towards the examinations for FEI (International Equestrian Federation) international judging.
