Classic Beauty

BY Sarah Bray | August 13, 2018 | Feature Features National

After over two decades as a competitor at the Hampton Classic, this summer, Georgina Bloomberg soars to new heights as both rider and board member.

For award-winning equestrian, mother and animal activist Georgina Bloomberg, riding is a vocation. “I love being at the barn, but to me, it is very much my job,” she readily admits. “When I come into the stable, I want to work hard and get something accomplished. I know what my goal is and what I want to work on, so when I get there, I really focus.”

It’s this razor-sharp determination that has defined her from an early age. Bloomberg first attended the Hampton Classic Horse Show as a very young spectator, there to watch her older sister, Emma, compete. “I had just gotten my first pony and wasn’t old enough to compete yet, but I brought my pony out to the show to ride around and pretend like I was competing,” says the equestrian, who started riding lessons at age 4. “I loved it even back then, and knew that I couldn’t wait to come back when I was older and actually get to show.” More than 30 years later, Bloomberg no longer has to pretend, having made her way from the Pony Hunter Division to the pinnacle of the sport, the Grand Prix.
