You can’t keep a great horse show down, especially in the Hamptons. Now that Hurricane Irene has passed, “The Hampton Classic Horse Show is spending Monday and Tuesday rebuilding 18 stabling tents with 1600 stalls plus 40 boutique and VIP tents in anticipation of the rescheduled start of the horse show on Wednesday,” the official Hampton Classic website reported.
“We’re now open to horses ahead of schedule! Barns should call the stable master about an hour before arrival (631) 901-1450 x3031 to make sure shavings are delivered to your stalls. Power, phones, and internet fully restored!”
Now a five-day event, the 36th annual Hampton Classic Horse Show will run through Sunday, September 4, and will culminate with the $250,000 FTI Grand Prix.
“I’m blown away by how resilient and resourceful our Hampton Classic staff and crew are,” said Shanette Barth Cohen, Executive Director of the Hampton Classic. “Everyone is jumping in and doing whatever is needed to make sure that we open on Wednesday. When people arrive on Wednesday, I am positive that there will be no signs whatsoever that we even had a hurricane.”
