Show jumping fans were joined by delighted holidaymakers on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean for the opening day of the LGCT and GCL in Miami Beach. It is one of the most unique venues for equestrian sport anywhere in the world with a breathtaking backdrop of rolling waves and white sands.

As the second GCL team competition of the season got underway there was passionate support for the home team Miami Glory and riders Georgina Bloomberg and Scott Brash. Spectators waved their special Miami Glory fans to cheer on the home city team.

Picking up on the Miami vibe, there was a cool social scene as hundreds of VIP guests enjoyed ringside views of top sporting action and a jaw-dropping view across the sand arena to the turquoise ocean. The interior of the chic VIP Hospitality Lounge was enhanced by stunning displays from Plant The Future reinforcing the tropical feel of the Florida destination.

Before the event kicked off VIPs enjoyed a glamorous cocktail party on the dramatic rooftop of 1Hotel overlooking the spectacular stretch of beach. Georgina Bloomberg, Jessica Springsteen and Tom Selleck’s daughter Hannah were among the elegant party guests.  With an action-packed weekend ahead, entry to the event is free for the public who can also enjoy the smart shopping village alongside the arena on the beach.
