Bruce Springsteen's daughter has bought a gold medal-winning horse from the London Olympics with hopes of her own glory days by competing for the United States in showjumping at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
And baby, this horse was born to run and jump.
Olympic gold medallist Peter Charles' horse Murka's Vindicat W has been sold to 20-year old Jessica
, the daughter of the rock star for an undisclosed price. Charles rode the horse in a jump-off to clinch the Olympic team title for Britain last month.
The 10-year old gelding, who also goes by the Jersey-sounding nickname "Vinnie," probably won't be sprung from cages out on highway 9 or graze anywhere near the swamps of Jersey though.
On his Facebook page, Charles posted, " I wish Jessica the best of luck with him and I'm sure he will make her proud."
Springsteen, an American international showjumper, started riding at age 5 and missed the cut for the U.S. equestrian team for London.
She represented the U.S. on the Young Rider Tour of Europe last summer.
It's no surprise that Jessica and her famous dad are part of the horsey set
. After all, the Boss did get his start at The Stone Pony
in Asbury Park.
