The Hampton Classic is an internationally renowned annual equestrian event that takes place in Bridgehampton, NY. A premier destination for equestrian enthusiasts, as well as those who are looking to end their summer at one of the most anticipated events in the Hamptons, it's an annual tradition for many. Founded back in the early 1900s and originally called the Southampton Horse Show, the Hampton Classic has more than 75 years of history and tradition. Initially, it took place at the Topping Riding Club in Sagaponack, NY, but due to its growth in popularity, it was relocated to the larger Dune Alpin Farm in East Hampton and expanded to its current eight day format. It was also at this time that the Hampton Classic formally incorporated the Southampton Horse Show. In 1982, the show was moved again, this time to its present location on Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, NY. Over the years, the Hampton Classic has gained prestige and has become one of the largest and most prevalent equestrian events in the US.
Throughout its long history, the Hampton Classic has played host to plenty of celebrities, from Jackie Kennedy-Onassis to Billy Joel. But no matter the era, the Hampton Classic maintains that sense of sophistication and Air Charter Service (ACS) wants to help those who are attending the event to arrive in style. We offer a selection of chartering options from luxurious private jets to our quick quiet helicopters; ACS guarantees that each of our clients receives the full VIP experience.
