Ichabod is a school teacher in a small town named Sleepy Hollow. A lovely girl came to town and everyone wanted to see the beautiful young lady.
Ichabod is in love with a girl. She is rich and beautiful, and for that reason, he wants to marry her. Her name is Katrina, but there is another man, Brom, who is also in love with her.
Brom is also in love with Katrina because of her wealth and beauty. Katrina has a party later that evening and Ichabod and Brom are both invited.
Ichabod and Katrina dance the night away. Suddenly, Brom becomes jealous so he tries to cut into their dance to switch partners with Ichabod. He tried numerous times, but his plan failed.
Brom got upset that he did not get to dance with Katrina. To scare Ichabod, Brom told them the legend of Sleepy Hollow. While Katrina was laughing hysterically, Ichabod was paralyzed with fear. After the night ended, Ichabod went home worried he would run into the Headless Horseman.
When Ichabod was riding his horse home, he felt as if someone was following him. Then, he saw it. The Headless Horseman chased him as he tried to leave the forest, but Ichabod coudln't lose him. The only way he would be safe is if he crossed the bridge between the forest and the Van Tassel farm. Before Ichabod could cross the bridge, he got hit in the back with the Headless Horesman's head and was never to be seen again. Later that year, Brom married Katrina.
