Later this year, Bruce Springsteen’s daughter will compete in the Olympics for the first time, and she has a good chance of winning a medal.

Jessica Springsteen, the youngest member of the US show-jumping team, is the daughter of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa.

The 29-year-old is ranked in the top 15 in the world and, along with Kent Farrington and Laura Kraut, is a strong contender for a medal in the team event.

She’s also aiming for a top 30 finish in the individual class to qualify for the final on Wednesday.

Springsteen’s parents are expected to tune in from their home in California to watch the four-day equestrian competition.

She said:

“This is not only my first Olympics, but also my first championships.

“I am so excited to represent my country at this level.

“It is something I have always dreamt of, and I am just really looking forward to the experience.

“Just to be selected on this team that I have looked up to throughout my career has been a huge honour for me.”

The postponement of the Games last year, according to Springsteen, allowed her and her 12-year-old stallion Don Juan van de Donkhoeve to strengthen their bond.

“Me and Don have been able to build on our partnership over this last year,” she said.

“And when it came time to the selection events, I felt really confident how far we had come.

“When I got Don he was jumping up to three-star level, so I kind of brought him up to this level – it was about fine-tuning everything, getting used to jumping these bigger tracks.

“I think your natural reaction when you are jumping big is you want to ride a little bit stronger.

“But with him, he doesn’t need that. He just rides off my feeling and I can trust his scope and quality.”
