B&D Builders, a full-service custom builder specializing in the art of timber framing, is once again sponsoring the Hampton Classic, Aug. 25 – Sep. 1, in Bridgehampton, NY. This year’s Hampton Classic is expected to host more than 40,000 spectators taking in the worldclass competitions.

“Now in our twenty-first year in business, Ben and I are falling in love with our first love all over again — the horse barn,” said Daniel Glick, co-owner, and the “D” of B&D Builders. “We enjoy getting to know the horse owner and really learning about the horse and rider’s daily lives and habits,” continued Daniel. “Here’s where we start to peel back the personality of our customer and we can build a space unique to their needs and wants.” 

“Growing up tending to these beautiful animals has implanted something in us that will never go away,” said Ben Esh, coowner, and, yes, the “B” of B&D. “These animals will always be a part of our lives, and we know what horse love is all about. Our favorite part of the build is when we get into the custom details. That’s where horse and rider personalities really come to life.”

 Since 1977, the Hampton Classic has made annual financial contributions totaling more than two million dollars to its official community partner, Southampton Hospital. The Classic, a 501(c)(3) charity, also supports many other local non-profit organizations and equestrian related charities. The Classic also hosts its popular Animal Welfare and Adoption Day. B&D Builders applauds the efforts of the Hampton Classic — an event that embraces the local community and some very worthy causes. 

Equestrian Facilities and the Horse Barn in 2021 and Beyond 

The pandemic has architects and designers focusing on building healthy environments for occupants of homes and work spaces. Horses’ environments need that same attention — comfort in all seasons, efficiency in barn work spaces, and customization that makes your barn unique to your discipline, your needs, and your design aesthetic. B&D Builders believes that every building is an opportunity to create something special with its customers.
