The Plaid Horse is excited to present the first in a series of #TBT Photo Galleries featuring various horse shows from the last year or so. Each collection is from one of our fabulous TPH Interns. We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

This week we revisit the Global Champions Tour in Miami which was held from April 2nd – 4th of this year. The show was held on Miami beach, just feet from the water. Dominique tells us hundreds of onlookers lined up by the rail watching in awe of the horses.
