On Saturday November 23, 2013, Averett Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) hosted the final competition of the semester. Among the visiting schools were NC State, Longwood University, and fierce rivals St. Andrews University. Despite a freezing cold start, the day warmed up and the rides definitely reflected the gorgeous weather! Averett’s Team A finished 3rd and Team B finished 1st, thanks to the great rides by the team members:
At First Level: Shannon Stone placed 1st
Jessie Hayes placed 4th and Micah Andrews placed 5th
At Upper Training: Amanda Arnold placed 3rd and Lindsey Baker placed 4th
At Lower Training: Catherine Doane placed 1st and Nicki Conradt-Eberlin placed 8th
At Intro: Sydney Owen placed 1st and Kathleen Nettnin placed 2nd.
Averett also held four Dressage Seat Equitation classes where the riders were judged on their riding positions! Alex Argentieri placed 2nd, Deanna Beebe placed 2nd, Scnobia Stewart placed 5th, and Natalie Lademan placed 1st!
Both IDA and IHSA teams return to the show ring next semester!
