    ADA past president, past USDF Region 9 Director, Region 9 Horseperson of the Year, USEF "r" Dressage judge, rider, breeder, rancher, quilter and avid fisherwoman, Kat Kyle passed away on December 9th.  If you knew Kat you know what a wonderful person she was and the time she dedicated to dressage in our Region.  I remember spending afternoons at her Bandera ranch putting together and editing the Region 9 omnibus and other projects.  Kat and her late husband, Dick, hosted many ADA events at her ranch as well.   Many of us (myself included) rode down center line towards Kat, and though she did not give points away in her  judging, she was always fair with great feedback. 

    Kat is survived by current husband, Scott Smith.  More details to follow with her obituary and memorial services which will be held in the spring.  Follow the funeral home website for updates:
