Norma Paoli

An international rider, mum, horse trainer and dressage instructor.
Norma Paoli is all this and much more as she flies the flag for Italy in the dressage world.

Norma Paoli hasn’t always been a dressage rider: she tried show jumping and eventing before excelling in dressage, in which she has won, amongst other things, a gold medal at the Italian Dressage Championships in 2018 and two bronze medals at the Grand Prix CDI 4* and the Intermediate I in 2019.

In addition to competing, she also thoroughly enjoys her work as an instructor and dressage horse trainer. Her secret is, “don’t get stuck in the sand school”, which is why she offsets the hard, repetitive, technical, almost obsessive work involved in preparing and schooling dressage horses with opportunities for “fun” for horse and rider, during which they both have the chance to let off steam, enjoy themselves and establish a good relationship.

Norma believes that the feeling you have with your horse is the key to success. But you can only achieve this success with many hours in the saddle, growing together with the horse, and by learning to know and listen to him. You can’t get great results just because you have a good horse; you also need to develop the athlete, be ready, know how to ride well and hone the rider’s position. The winning formula is to have both, you can’t have just one or the other.

My success is built on passion and consistency, which is why I spend so much time in the stables helping the team that works with me. They all play an essential role in managing the horses: from the groom, farrier and vet to the trainer, nutritionist and rider without of course forgetting the horse. Everyone has to do their bit. For example, I look after my horses’ diet and nutrition with feed made to order to suit the season, their workloads, and health requirements. We have an ongoing relationship with Porrini’s nutritionists which always focuses on helping the horses to be healthy and well and perform at their best.”
