BRIDGEHAMPTON, N.Y. — On Monday, Aug. 26, from 12 noon to 1 p.m., the EQUUS Foundation will once again partner with the Hampton Classic Horse Show to present adoptable horses at the Hampton Classic's Animal Adoption Day.

This year, EQUUS Foundation Guardian Charities, Omega Horse Rescue from Pennsylvania, ReRun Thoroughbred Adoption from New York and Rising Starr Horse Rescue from Connecticut, will each present horses and ponies available for adoption. The state-of-the-art HEART Horse Ambulance will join the EQUUS Foundation in the ring and will be open for tours.

"As always, I am thrilled to be at the beautiful Hampton Classic Horse Show representing the work of the EQUUS Foundation and also The Rider's Closet, which I founded in 2006 and is now a program of the EQUUS Foundation," said Bloomberg. "I look forward to this day each year to help raise awareness and support for horses in transition that need new homes and new chapters. It's important to remember that many thousands of horses across the country are waiting for lifelines, and a chance to be loved and to be someone's champion and as people who care about horses, we need to step up and speak out for all horses."

Rider's Closet Mobile Donation Trunk on the Move

The Rider's Closet will have its mobile donation tack trunk at the Equine Adoption Event to accept donations of new and gently used equestrian apparel to award to riders in need around the country. The trunk will move to the Hampton Classic Patio on Aug. 27 and 28, and to the Mikelle Design booth in the Boutique Garden from Aug. 29 through Sept. 1.
