There's something for everyone at the 35th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton. Located on 60 acres of beautiful show grounds, the Hampton Classic provides an arena for young amateur competitors to show off their skills as they ride for titles and prizes. Highlighted throughout the week is a world-class jumping competition, featuring Olympians, world champions, and USEF veterans such as two-time Olympic team gold medalist McLain Ward, who won the Grand Prix last year for a record fourth time.

In addition, a variety of seminars and events hosted by the ASPCA will take place throughout the horse show. Three local animal shelters and four local rescue groups will present animals available for adoption. A Boutique Garden provides everything from Hampton Classic souvenirs to fine custom clothing.

 Held in high regard by the horse community, and famous for its celebrity sightings and shopping boutiques, the show earns its nickname, The Classic. It's a great way for the whole family to end the summer.
