Meet some of the people who make the Hampton Classic Horse Show special, from the staff, to the sponsors to the competitors, to the spectators.
One of the newest sponsors is Longines, which is well known in the horse world. Mr. Juan-Carlos Capelli, VP, commented, “Longines is very proud to be the Official Watch and the Official Timekeeper of the Hampton Classic Horse Show. This new partnership underlines Longines’ passion and support for equestrian sports which dates back to 1878 when it produced a chronograph engraved with a jockey and his mount. Since 1926, the brand provides its skilled timekeeping services to equestrian sports and is today the partner of the most prestigious events in show jumping, racing and endurance. Elegance, tradition and performance – these are the values which unite Longines and equestrian sports.”
Other sponsors include FTI, Land Rover, Cablevision, Champagne Louis Roederer and numerous others. The horse world and especially the Hampton Classic is made possible because of sponsors like these.
