After being pushed back a year from the coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 Olympic Summer Games are set to start Friday, July 23. Should all continue going according to plan, Bruce Springsteen's daughter Jessica will be competing in the games. Jessica is due to join the U.S. equestrian team alongside the country's other top three riders. Their particular event will take place later in the schedule, from August 3 to the penultimate day of August 7. Closing ceremonies occur on August 8.

She's joined by her 12-year-old horse named Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, who is a Belgian Warmblood stallion from Stone Hill Farm. According to UCR, the 300-acre estate operates out of Colts Neck, New Jersey and is run by her parents.

Don Juan van de Donkhoeve is ranked the number one horse in the same category. At 29 years of age, Jessica Springsteen will be heading to her very first Olympics shortly.

While Jessica competes, Bruce Springsteen will be continuing his Broadway residency, not out of disinterest, but because with continuing pandemic restrictions, no foreign spectators can go to the venue anyway.

"My parents love the sport as well," Jessica shared of Patti Scialfa and Springsteen. "They have been so supportive and passionate about it, too, which is a nice thing to share with them. There have been many ups and downs, and they have always pushed me whenever I have been feeling down. They always helped me get through it. I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for them."
