Hampton Classic Horse Show 2018 August 26 – September 2 As one of the largest outdoor horse shows in the United States, and a premier destination for horse people, the Classic is a much-anticipated stop on the summer tour.

In 2009, the Hampton Classic became only the second horse show ever to receive the status of Heritage Competition by the United States Equestrian Federation.  This prestigious status is reserved for competitions that have been in existence for at least 25 years and have provided for their communities as well as the horse community as a whole in an unprecedented fashion.

At the Classic, you will see some of the top jumper riders from around the world, coming to compete for some of the richest prize money offered in this country.

There is also no shortage of stiff competition in the Hunter Divisions. In the four classic grass rings you will find all skill levels competing, from smallest of ponies to the most seasoned professional riders.  The final weekend’s Hunter Classics bring out the best of the best.

Opening Sunday, on the beautiful grass of the Grand Prix Ring, you will find probably the tensest competition all week, the infamous Hampton Classic Leadline.  Dozens upon dozens of ponies parade their riders, judged by Olympic Gold medalist Joe Fargis, while their proud parents and grandparents watch nervously from the V.I.P. tents.

The Hampton Classic Horse Show is always a grand way to end the summer. Held in high regard by the horse community, famous for its Hamptons Celebrity sightings, and second to none in high end shopping boutiques, it earns its nickname The Classic.

The roots of the show go to the early 1900s in Southampton to a show that was discontinued during World War I. It was revived in the 1920s and then discontinued again in World War II. It was revived a third time in 1959 as the “Southampton Horse Show”, which was discontinued in the mid-1960s.

The current show started in 1971 by the Topping Riding Club inSagaponack, New York, as a one-day show. In 1976 it became a five-day rated show held initially at Dune Alpin Farm in East Hampton. In 1978, its name was formally changed to the Hampton Classic, and in 1982 it moved to its present location on Snake Hollow Road, Bridgehampton.

In 2006 its web site indicated it has 1,300 horses exhibited and over $500,000 in prize money.
