OUT HERE: Greatest of Ease

Trapeze lessons at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton have become something of a tradition (dating, if you want to go all the way back, to the 1970s when small students at Hayground’s hippie-dippie precursor, the Hampton Day School, flew through the air in phys-ed class). This year, the trapeze season wraps up in mid-September.

Show and Tell: An Inside Look at Competitive Riding

It's time for the Hampton Classic once again, where Ava Lynch, an up-and-coming teen equestrian from Wainscott, will saddle up with passion in her heart and ribbons in her sights. She gave EAST magazine a close-up look into the world of competitive riding. There’s a myth, Ava says, that competitive riding “is easy, that anyone can do it, or that it isn’t a sport. That’s just not true.”

ON THE COVER: Kym Fulmer, "Look at That"

Kym Fulmer intentionally blurs the line between hands-on and digital manipulation, which is how she went about creating this month’s magazine cover. “I like to do work that is figurative and recognizable but also stylish and fun,” she says when asked to describe her style. “Whimsical is overused — but maybe a little childlike?
