Horses played a major role in the life at Hampton under third master John Ridgely. Rather than continuing his father Charles Carnan Ridgely’s focus on horseracing, John was especially interested in swift carriage horses. He also purchased expensive carriages such as this to transport his family in style. Note the Ridgely crest painted on the door.
