Meet Bruce Springsteen’s Daughter, Champion Horseback Rider
Jessica Springsteen, champion equestrian (and daughter of rock legend Bruce) splits her time between her family’s farm in Colts Neck Township, N.J., and Wellington, Fla., where she competes in show-jumping events.
“There’s a certain freedom you feel on horseback,” she says. “Whenever I ride, I’m completely in the zone.”
