Bruce Springsteen‘s 29-year-old daugther Jessica will compete in the 2021 Olympic games on the United States equestrian team. This will be Jessica Springsteen’s first time entering the arena at the Olympic games; she was selected as an alternate rider in 2012 and then left off the 2016 team as a result of leg issues with her horse.
In Tokyo she will compete with Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, a 12-year-old Belgian Warmblood stallion horse. The animal is owned by Stone Hill Farm, the 300-acre estate in Colts Neck, N.J., operated by Bruce Springsteen and her wife.
Jessica began taking riding lessons as a child, is now currently ranked the No. 3 show jumper rider in the United States and her horse is ranked No. 1.
In her official Instagram, Bruce Springsteen’s daugther Jessica Springsteen said:
“Been dreaming of this since I can remember! Endless gratitude for my team, friends and family for helping me make this a reality. We are Tokyo bound!! Honored to be a part of this team with @laurakraut @teamkpf and @mclainward.official. There’s no horse in the world I’d rather be on this journey with, thank you Don! You’re my horse of a lifetime🤗Let’s go USA!🇺🇸🎉”
