Member of the Week: Kathie Norman

Early this season Kathie set a goal for herself and her horse, Dulce.  She set her sights high and decided to go for the ACTHA Pleasure National High Point title.  In order to accomplish this goal, Kathie knew that she would need to work hard to get herself and her horse ready for the challenge.  She dedicated many hours to training and traveled many miles throughout several states to achieve her goal.  Kathie finished this season First in Texas and First in the Nation in High Points in the Pleasure Division.

Be proud, ACTHA, to have this horsewoman as one of your members.  She represents ACTHA well.  She is a dedicated member and a strong horsewoman.

“Kathie has put her heart and soul into ACTHA.  She loves the friendly competition and she loves the campground comradery.  Once you meet Kathie, you know you’ve met a friend”, says Judy Limsky.  Kathie and Judy traveled together this season attending ACTHA rides and enjoying
adventures along the way.

Comments from another fellow rider, “Kathie and Dulce are both over achievers, but in a very earthy, grounded sort of way.  Kathie takes each task to heart, and gives it her total, undivided attention and focus.  She brings out the earnest sense of achievement related to each obstacle, and this encourages a healthy environment of competition.  She sets a bar of combined humility and drive, and anyone riding with Kathie will experience a level of seriousness and passion for the sport of trail riding which can invariably influence your own ride in a very positive way.  I feel honored to have had the pleasure of riding with Kathie on numerous occasions and look forward to many more in the future.  Kathie and Dulce are at the head of the class, for well deserved reasons.”
