She was purchased as a 4 year old from her breeder, and she was owned for the rest of her life by my friend. Carolyn had been to the breeder's barn to look at another prospect, but when she saw Summer Lights work, she decided she was the one.
Summer Lights showed in 3 gaited classes as a four year old, but came back the next year as a gaited horse. Although she never earned all her champion points, she did very well and showed around the Ohio circuit until she was nine. She later produced five foals, and all were shown successfully. She ruled the rest of the broodmares at her farm until she died of an aneurysm while grazing out in her field at age twenty. Her daughter Loretta shares her dam's trait..........she rules the pastures at our farm and doesn't let anyone forget who is boss!
