While the Hampton Classic Horse Show
, one of the largest outdoor horse shows in the United States, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Classic's Boutique Garden will be virtually hosted from Sunday, August 30, through Sunday, September 6.
"In addition to providing a chance to shop some of the amazing boutiques found at the Classic, this is also a great way to help support the many small businesses who are missing out on the chance to showcase their products at the Hampton Classic
, as well as at other horse shows throughout 2020," Shanette Cohen, Executive Director of the Hampton Classic, noted.
Starting Friday, August 28, a preview of all items on sale will be available on the Classic's website shopping page before the sale officially begins Sunday, August 30. The Boutique Garden will feature nearly 40 of the show's onsite shops and boutiques, all of which will offer a 10 percent off discount for those who use the code HC2020 at checkout.
"It's also a good way to support the Hampton Classic, a 501(c)3 non-profit," Cohen noted. "Each vendor will be making a 15 percent donation to the show for purchases made through the virtual boutique garden and this will play a role in helping the Classic survive 2020 and return in its traditional way in 2021!"
Additionally, to commemorate the Classic's Animal Welfare and Adoption Day, in partnership with Equus
Foundation, horses will be available for adoption through the Equus Foundation's new Next Chapters website platform on Monday, September 14. Several animal rescues, including dogs, cats and other pets, in need of a forever home will be spotlighted on the Classic's social media
platforms on Wednesday, September 16.
