GHF Hamptons is located on North Main Street in Southampton at Clearview Farm which is currently owned by the White family. The Farm has been in the White/Bishop family since Bill's great grandfather, on his mother's side, James Bishop, established it in the 1860's. Bishop raised cows, horses, and vegetables. Inspired by a southern view of the beautiful blue Atlantic, he named his farm Clearview. The industry of the farm has changed over the years, but the name has remained the same.  

After World War II Bill White's father converted Clearview into a potato farm. When Bill married he and his wife, Lin did some farming of their own in upstate New York.  They returned to Clearview in the 1980's and decided to change the farm into an equestrian property for their three daughters, Morgan, Ashley and Brittan who loved horses.

The old potato barns were dark and subterranean-like ; unsuitable housing  for horses. With a knack for architectural design, White transformed the buildings into airy stables. During the reconstruction old foundations, windows, and doors from the original horse and dairy barns were discovered. These discoveries were restored and recycled into the new buildings. Clearview Farm came full circle – back to its original roots, recapturing its old world charm as it grew into a 32 stall haven dedicated to equestrian pursuits. Famous names in riding such as Conrad Holmfeld, Joe Fargis, and The Southampton Riding and Hunt Club have at times made it their home.

Today a lovely peace and stillness prevails under the ancient trees and down the dirt paths to the rolling fields and paddocks. There is palpable history here. Many come to the east end in search of just that.

In 2001 with the help and support of my husband Mark, I left a rewarding career in marketing and opened Gray Horse Farm at our home in Upper Brookville. Our blended family included, Becky, five, Marissa, thirteen, and Daniel, nine. All of us working together, we restored the 1920’s brick barn, refurbished and expanded the old riding ring. Not too soon after, we added another barn and 4 more paddocks. When our Shetland pony named Coco and our semi-retired horse named Fairfield were safely stowed in their new stalls, we were ready for and optimistic about what would turn out to be the best twelve years of our lives.

When the children and I began competing we needed to upgrade our horse inventory. Soon we began importing special jumpers and hunters from Europe. It was fun, and challenging, and not always perfect, but my dream came true: happy children, good horses, and a dedicated trainer. We were blessed.

In 2009, the unthinkable happened. Mark was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Soon after the dreadful discovery he bought me my most treasured horse and I named her Halo. My husband died the next summer. Halo became my angel. I ride her in the adult jumper division and she has taken me safely from the starting tone to the last jump time after time. Halo watches over me at every jump. She gives her heart in every class and never lets me down, a faithful partner. Truly heaven sent.

Facing a new chapter in life, I decided to open a full- service stable in the Hamptons. When I drove up the dirt drive onto the old Clearview Farm on North Main Street in Southampton I knew this was it! In April 2012, I moved into a barn that needed a facelift by a woman who loves hard work. It was like starting anew. I cleaned, repaired, renovated and redecorated. I mended fences and planted gardens; painted the Pony Palace, mowed the tall grass, settled in the horses, blessed the grooms, said a prayer, and opened for business in May 2012.
