Here Comes The Hampton Classic! Once again, the Hampton Classic Horse Show returns to Bridgehampton to combine world-class equestrian competition with one of the biggest social events of the summer. The Classic, which celebrates its 35th Anniversary, August 29 – September 5, features everything from exciting equestrian competition to fantastic shopping and fun, family activities. Whether you’re an avid competitor or a first-time vistor, you are sure to find something that will keep you coming back year after year! Located on its beautiful 60-acre show grounds, The Hampton Classic features world-class show jumping competition highlighted by the $250,000 FTI Grand Prix and FEI World Cup™ Qualifier on Sunday, September 5, which is open to horses that successfully complete Friday’s $50,000 Spy Coast Farm Grand Prix Qualifier. This exciting class features Olympians, World Champions and USEF veterans such as two-time Olympic team Gold Medalist McLain Ward, who won the FTI Grand Prix last year for a record fourth time. “For 35 years the Hampton Classic has been a symbol of world-class equestrian competition as well as being one of the most anticipated social events of the summer,” said Shanette Barth Cohen, Executive Director of the Hampton Classic. “For our 35th anniversary we are excited to offer the same high level of equestrian sport as well as fun family attractions in our Exhibition Tent, and excellent shopping in our Boutique Garden. In addition to keeping with these great traditions, we are also

excited to add some new events to our schedule, and invite everybody to join us for what is sure to be one of our biggest and best Hampton Classics yet!” A variety of activities hosted by the ASPCA will take place throughout the horse show including Adoption Day at the Classic on Monday, August 30, when three local animal shelters and four local rescue groups will feature animals available for adoption. Warriors Way, a former racehorse who is now a successful show horse, will also be making a special appearance on Adoption Day. Celebrity VIP hosts for the event will include international Grand Prix rider Georgina Bloomberg, the ASPCA’s Equine Welfare Ambassador, and Jill Rappaport, the “Today” show’s Animal Welfare Correspondent and best-selling author.
