Addie Ledbetter, a resident of Summerville and senior at Fort Dorchester High School, placed second for the Individual JV Novice Fences Class at the Interscholastic Equestrian Association Zone 4 Finals in Murfreesboro, Tenn. March 23.
Zone 4 is comprised of 232 equestrian teams representing the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee and South Carolina.
Ledbetter qualified for the IEA National Finals with her second place finish among the 17 competitors in her class. The IEA National Finals will take place in Syracuse, NY, at the New York State Fairgrounds Toyota Arena April 19-21 where thousands of riders from several hundred teams will participate in IEA representing all of North America plus Hawaii and Alaska with separate high school and middle school divisions.
Ledbetter is in her third year of riding with the IEA Storybook Farm High School Team, hosted by the home farm for the College of Charleston Equestrian Team. This is the second consecutive year she has advanced to the IEA National Finals. The Storybook Team won both the high school and middle school team championships at the Zone 4 competition this past weekend.
Ledbetter is coached by Alicia Story and has been riding since the age of six and competing in equestrian events since she was 7-years-old.
