Bruce Springsteen’s Daughter Jessica Left Off 2024 Equestrian Olympic Team

Bruce Springsteen‘s daughter, Jessica Springsteen, will not represent the United States in the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris. Over the weekend, U.S. Equestrian announced the list of athletes representing Team USA, but Jessica was not included.

The athletes to get the call to rep the U.S. are Kent Farrington, Laura Krant, and McLain Ward, with Karl Cool serving as an alternate. Farrington is ranked 6th in the world and will mark his third Olympics. Meanwhile, Kraut is ranked 35th, and Ward is ranked 15th. (Ward was part of gold medal-winning teams in 2004 and 2008, while Farrington helped the U.S. get silver in 2016.)

At the 2021 Games, Jessica helped earn a silver medal for the U.S. during her debut at the competition alongside Kraut and Ward. At the time, she was ranked 27th in the world. Today, Springsteen is ranked 127th.

“We are very lucky to have three of the most experienced athletes in the sport riding horses that are in top form heading into the Games,” read a statement from Chef d’Equipe Robert Ridland. “Additionally, we have a strong alternate athlete horse combination in Karl and Caracole who have shown great recent form.”

“Now that selection is complete, we are 100% laser-focused on Paris.” Ridland added.

Before competing at the 2021 Games, Jessica told People that it would be the “biggest honor” to represent her country and spoke about her relationship with her stallion.

“Sometimes you get a horse, and it can take you a long time to get to know each other, but with him, we came together quickly, and we’ve been able to build on that ever since,” she said at the time. “We definitely have a lot of trust.”
