Situated in scenic Bridgehampton, New York, the show is just minutes away from local beaches and fashionable boutiques. The 65-acre showgrounds feature four grass rings and classes for all skill levels. At the Classic, the infamous lead line class is often just as competitive as the grand prix show jumping.

The Hampton Classic continually prides itself as an event that listens to all of its constituents, from riders and spectators to sponsors and advertisers. As a result, the show has grown exponentially and has earned its place as one of the most beloved horse shows in the United States. In 2009, the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) awarded the Hampton Classic the status of Heritage Competition, only the second show to ever receive the prestigious standing.
