Yet another horse riding competition has come to a close with yet another crowd of Hamptonites showing up to do everything but watch the game. Unlike polo, bleachers surrounded the field for the 34th annual Hampton Classic Horse Show for spectators actually interested in watching the game, but on the other side the Grand Prix field? The tents. The place for the horse show-goers more concerned with cocktails, photo ops, and who's wearing the biggest hat than catching the competition. Guests included... Kelly Ripa with hubby Mark Consuelos, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, L.A. Reid, Richard Johnson, Peggy Siegal, Bruce "The Boss" Springsteen, and many, many more.
