Daughter Bruce Springsteen goes to Tokyo with a Belgian horse

At the Tokyo Olympics, Jessica Springsteen, the daughter of American rock singer Bruce Springsteen, will make her first appearance with the American equestrian team. She does it with a Belgian horse.

The American Equestrian Federation has confirmed that Jessica Springsteen will compete in the Olympics (July 23 – August 8). This is the first time the 29-year-old daughter of The Boss and Patti Sialpa has competed in the sport since losing a place on the US team in 2012 and 2016.

His participation also has a Belgian connection: in Springsteen Tokyo will be competing with Don Juan van de Donkov, a 12-year-old Belgian sports horse. That is not surprising. Springsteen has been leading his equestrian career in our country for many years, especially from the Musem-Wolverhampton, including Belgian horses.

Another ride with the Belgian horse has been selected within the US team: Kent Farrington – silver medalist at the Games in Rio de Janeiro four years ago – with the Belgian Kesel. There are still many countries that believe in the Belgian top horse while chasing a medal in Tokyo on August 6th and 7th. Overview of all Belgian horses at the Olympics:
