Jessica, the daughter of Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, has won many championships, both in the junior ranks and now as a professional adult jumper. Most recently she was named as a substitute to the Short List for the 2016 U.S. Olympic Show Jumping Team. She helped the U.S. win in the FEI Nations Cup in Dublin in 2014, and she won the American Gold Cup Grand Prix and was named Leading Rider at the Washington International Horse show that same year.
In 2015, Jessica won first place in CSI5* speed classes in Chantilly and Vienna. At this year’s WEF, Jessica had exciting wins again in the Suncast 1.50m Championship and the 1.45 Classic, and had top placings in the Suncast 1.50m Championship Final and the Rolex CSI5* Grand Prix.
In April 2016, Jessica earned the Hermès Talented Young Rider Award after a successful season at the Winter Equestrian Festival. She will compete this summer in the prestigious Global Champions League as a member of the Shanghai Swans.
Jessica currently trains with Olympian Edwina Tops‐Alexander. She is a graduate of Duke University with a degree in psychology. Animal welfare is a cause Jessica cares deeply about and she serves as an ASPCA Equine Welfare Ambassador.
