Spectacular Miami Beach hosts the LGCT and GCL this week
The ground-breaking venue of Miami Beach will see a tantalising line up of the stars of jumping as top sport plays out over three days on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The venue on America’s East Coast is one of the most spectacular in the sport and sets a dazzling stage for the second leg of the 2018 circuit from 5 – 7 April.
With the world’s best riding just metres from the Atlantic ocean, the second leg of the Championship promises an edge-of-the-seat weekend of top sport. The game-changing venue of LGCT Miami Beach has become one of the most spectacular jumping destinations in the world, with fans flocking to the sands to see their heroes up close, and hundred of thousands more tuning in on the website live streaming. From all over the world, riders and horses have flown into the high profile US destination, with the American stop on the 16-leg Championship undoubtably one of the most highly sought-after.
Australia’s Edwina Tops-Alexander who won this event in 2016 will be riding again this year on a mission to regain the title and Australian Jumping will be following her every step of the way!
