This comes after the 29-year-old and her team won the silver medal in showjumping during the summer’s Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Jessica said: “I’ve dreamed of competing here in Aachen for so long and now winning the Mercedes-Benz Nations Cup, that’s unbelievable.

“I am so grateful. We have been looking forward to this evening all summer.”

Jessica was selected to partner 12-year-old Belgian stallion Don Juan van de Donkhoeve in the Tokyo Olympics.

That was the American’s first Games appearance after being named as an alternate for the London 2012 Olympics.

The equestrian star failed to earn a place on the team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.


Jessica previously stated that her parents are her “biggest fans” and that her dad doesn’t get as nervous as her mum, Patti Scialfa.

And it showed when Bruce congratulated the US equestrian team after their Olympic success.

The rock star said: “I want to congratulate the United States Olympic show jumping team — that’s McLain Ward, Laura Kraut and my lovely daughter, Jessica Springsteen — on their silver medal win at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

“A special shout-out to my great friend and one of the kings of show jumping, Nick Skelton [Jessica’s coach], for his guidance and inspiration.”
