In today's #FlashbackFriday we celebrate the legendary show jumping horse Shutterfly, who competed in a total of seven FEI World Cup Finals (2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011). Ridden by Germany’s Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, Shutterfly won three World Cup Finals (2005, 2008, and 2009) of which two came in Las Vegas (2005 and 2009). Their three victories together are historic, as Meredith remains the only woman rider to have won three FEI World Cup Jumping titles!
