The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of this year’s Hampton Classic Horse Show, which would have been celebrating its 45th year in late August. The Hampton Classic Horse Show will return in 2021, from August 29 - September 5.

“It is difficult to express how disappointing this is for everyone,” said Shanette Cohen, Executive Director of the Hampton Classic, in a statement from the organisers. “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.”

“I want to thank Longines, NetJets, Land Rover, Mane ‘n Tail, and Hermès and all our sponsors for their continued support,” Cohen added. “Without the ongoing support of our sponsors, patrons and exhibitors, we would not be able to maintain the Classic as the world-class event that has come to mean so much to so many. On behalf of the Board, I offer all our supporters our deepest thanks and appreciation.”
