Today my family and I went to see the World’s best riders compete in this exciting equestrian series! Set on the sands of Miami Beach under the Florida Sun, this was truly a global sporting spectacle. We were able to have free access to a fantastic selection of shopping in the Prestige Village and be up close to the incredible jumps as the horses and riders take to course.
