Hampton Classic 

Wednesday, August 30, 2023

Depart 8:30 AM – Return 6:30 PM (approximately)


Join our LI tour guide, as we head out to Bridgehampton and enjoy one of the most famous events on Long Island, "The Hampton Classic” and see the Olympic jumper and rider winners from the International livery stables.

All events are staged every year, on a transformed outdoor field in beautiful Bridgehampton.  Multiple horse jumping rings are spaced around the acres, with outdoor bleachers.  Each event is timed with judges announcing on loudspeaker, for all to hear. 

All seating is open, (bring sun/rain apparel). There are many food vendors scattered around the walkways for you to enjoy.  Don’t miss the incredible vendors as you stroll the "Boutique Gardens".

On the way home, we will stop at a local LI farm and if time permits, we will take a drive into Southampton village, and enjoy a bus eye view of beautiful homes along the water. This is sure to be a full day of fun!  Fee: $69 per person.
