The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of this year’s Hampton Classic Horse Show. The Hampton Classic would have been celebrating its 45th year in late August at its world-class show grounds in Bridgehampton, New York. The Hampton Classic will return Aug. 29-Sept. 5, 2021.
“It is difficult to express how disappointing this is for everyone,” said Shanette Cohen, Executive Director of the Hampton Classic. “However, given the current situation and the uncertainty that lies ahead, our board reached the conclusion that there really is no other option.”
“Naturally, the safety and well-being of our exhibitors, and everyone involved with the Classic, takes first priority, and the board is unanimous in its belief that the wisest course of action is to put all our efforts and resources into ensuring that the Classic is able to return next year at the same high standard that everyone expects.”
