Bridgehampton, NY — August 30, 2016 — Reminiscent of a classic high-end shoe store, Katharine Page was named the outstanding boutique among more than 80 boutiques at the 41st annual Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton, NY.
“It is evocative of an old-fashioned store,” said Page of the booth’s design. “It was so exciting for us to be invited here, so my husband wanted to create something timeless, classic and beautiful. He wanted to make the ladies smile when they came into the store. We have wanted to come here since we started the company.”
Page and her husband Mark launched the company three years ago. As a competitor in horse shows on the “A” circuit for the last 25 years, Page became inspired by equestrian bridles when designing her line of sandals and shoes.
“We refer to it as fancy stitch. Five years ago I couldn’t stop thinking about incorporating that into a line of sandals and shoes. When I started working on them my goal was to make them as comfortable as possible, so all of the shoes are lined with a little bit of padding, a material used in running shoes.”
Currently, Katharine Page is a small company by design to maintain a high level of quality. “We go to different equestrian events around the country, but to come to the Hampton Classic and win a blue ribbon is very special!”
The Hampton Classic Horse Show runs through Sunday, September 4 at its pristine Bridgehampton, NY, venue. For this year’s 41st annual edition, a fourth FEI class has been added to the schedule in addition to more than 200 classes of competition for horses and riders of all ages and abilities. A wide range of hunter, jumper and equitation classes are offered at all levels, from leadline all the way up to grand prix. Classes are also featured for riders with disabilities.
In addition to the six show rings, the Hampton Classic features a Boutique Garden with more than 80 vendors for an amazing shopping experience, a wide selection of dining options and a Farmer’s Market, all on its immaculate 60-acre show grounds.
