Fine Art visits the Hampton Classic, Opens to Sunny Skys

After being shut down by Hurricane Irene  last week  the  39Th Hampton Classic opened yesterday on a picture perfect long Island day. All tents were up with the grounds completely ready for a great event.  What usually takes a week to complete was done in a day after the tents were disassembled  last week in the midst's of storm preparation and reassembled. The grounds were ideal, the horses looked ready to go.

 We walked the grounds  we saw a boy with his great dogs, vendors were ready for the crowds,  and the ASPCA booth was ready to promote animal rescue plus care.

More than 70 corporate sponsors, stables representing 25 countries, 1,600 horses in this most spectacular hunter/jumper event compete, for the near $7000,000 prize money.  Over 50,000 spectators will enjoy this years Hampton Classic.  Media, music, fashion, and super stars form all over the world will be in attendance. Fine Art has brought you along. Please enjoy the pictures shot below on opening day.All photo © Jamie Forbes/
