Jessica Springsteen has traveled the world for horse show jumping competitions. Last year, she competed at the Longines Global Champions Tour in Monaco.
“I’ve done a bunch of other global shows in Europe and they are always so beautiful and so well done, I’m excited it’s come to the states,” said Springsteen.
This year, celebrating its 10th anniversary, she’s back with the Global Champions Tour as it makes its debut on the sands of South Beach on a specially built stage behind the Setai Hotel.
“This is amazing. We’re right on the beach, you can’t ask for anything better.” she said.

“It is so unbelievable. I’m so excited to be here on South Beach. My horse has been watching the sea the whole morning,” Alicia said.
For Jessica, it’s three days of intense jumping competitions and of course fun.
“Will your parents come and watch you?” asked CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo.
“They do come to a lot of shows. They are in Palm Beach now so I think they’ll come up for a day,” said Jessica.MORE NEWS: COVID In Florida: 3,231 New Cases, 33 Additional Deaths Reported Sunday
