Equine Obituary-WGC Pat Head Summitt


Pat Head Summitt passed away on May 26, 2008 due to an extended illness. She was in training with Bobo Farms and was owned by Roger Richards and Allen Curtis.

She was truly a remarkable animal. She was shown 53 times in 2007 coming out with 35 blue ribbons in eight different states. Four of her blues were at the 2007 Celebration. She won the TWHBEA Youth Yearling Mare & Gelding with Taylor Morgan, the Owner-Amateur Yearlings with Roger Richards and both the Yearling Fillies and Geldings class and the Yearling World Grand Championship with Amanda Winters.

Pat Head Summitt also won at the TWHBEA Futurity in the Yearling Filly class and four blues at the International. Not to mention she was the High Point Yearling with WHOA and the Walking Horse Report and the WHTA Yearling of the Year. She will be truly missed by everyone who was around her.
