ShowNet Vision to Provide Exhibitors Real Time Scoring & Results!
Bridgehampton, NY—July 07, 2014—Exhibitors entering the Hampton Classic Horse Show, which returns to Bridgehampton, NY, August 24 – August 31, can save time by filing their entries online through Equestrian Connect. Equestrian Connect offers its online service free for all Hampton Classic Entries, which will be accepted until 6:00 p.m. on Friday, July 18.
The Hampton Classic returns for its 39th year of world-class equestrian competition, shopping and entertainment. Masses of spectators, socialites and celebrities – and anyone looking for a top summer destination – return year after year to the eastern end of Long Island to see and be seen at New York’s iconic end-of-summer event.
“Submitting entries online makes the process much easier for our exhibitors,” said Shanette Cohen, the Hampton Classic executive director. “Filing entries through Equestrian Connect helps to make the process smooth, and it gives the horse show staff entries that are complete and legible.”
Another exciting opportunity for exhibitors is that ShowNet Vision will once again provide complimentary real time scoring and results for all rings throughout the week. Additionally, ShowNet will webcast the Grand Prix Ring free of charge, thanks to Hampton Classic Broadcast Sponsor and Official Timekeeper, LONGINES. The footage will be available on the Hampton Classic website. In addition, the Grand Prix will stream on iEquine and the HRTV Network. Video footage from other rings will be available on a pay-per-view basis.
“Providing exhibitors and spectators accessibility to scoring and results in real time is always appreciated. And, the wall-to-wall complimentary coverage of our Grand Prix ring was extremely well received last year,” said Cohen. “We believe it is a huge asset to riders and viewers, and we are pleased to provide these services again for this year’s Classic.”
The Hampton Classic features 6 show rings, a Boutique Garden with more than 70 vendors, and a wide selection of dining options, all on its 60-acre show grounds. The Classic's world-class equestrian competition attracts many of the nation's top professional and amateur riders, and its Hamptons charm and schedule of family attractions make it the perfect destination for anybody looking to add some style to their summer.
The Hampton Classic features more than 100 classes of competition for horses and riders of all ages. A wide range of jumper, hunter, equitation, short stirrup and lead line classes are part of the Classic’s schedule, as well as competitions for riders with disabilities and the highlight of competition, the $250,000 Grand Prix and FEI World Cup™ Qualifier presented by Land Rover. The prize list is available online at www.hamptonclassic.com.
