12-year-old twins set to take on top equestrians at the Hampton Classic

Posted: Updated:

A set of identical twin sisters from Long Island are about to have their dreams come true as they get set to compete at the Hampton Classic horse show.

Evangeline and Annabelle Wasser, 12, have been training for this moment and are excited to compete against some of the top equestrians in the world.

"It's not about winning or losing," says Annabelle. "It's nice to get a ribbon or something, but it is better to have a successful day."

The sisters both have a winning attitude.

"If we both don't win, it's OK because we did great with ourselves and the with horses, and tried our best," says Evangeline.

The Hampton Classic is a Grand Prix event and one of the largest horse shows in the U.S. The week-long event get underway in Bridgehampton Sunday.
