Jessica Springsteen, the daughter of rock star Bruce Springsteen, has been selected for the Tokyo Olympics show jumping team, the U.S. equestrian team announced Monday.

Springsteen and her 12-year-old stallion, Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, will be part of a four-member squad that also includes McLain Ward, Kent Farrington and Laura Kraut.

The 29-year-old Springsteen was an alternate at the 2012 London Summer Games but failed in her bid to make the 2016 Rio Games.

3. That's probably the least "working man sport" I can think of.

But good on her!

4. I think it's like horse racing.

The basic idea is not to fall off the horse.

6. Not to fall off a very expensive horse.

“Saddle up Don Juan van de Donkhoeve, Jeeves, I should very much like to ride today.”
