Bruce Springsteen's daughter buys Olympic horse in hopes to compete in 2016 Games

The daughter of rock icon Bruce Springsteen has her sights set on competing for the United States in showjumping at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. She took a major step in qualifying by purchasing a gold medal-winning horse from the London Olympics this week.

The amount paid for 10-year-old gelding known as "Vinnie" wasn't disclosed, but it's safe to assume it didn't come cheap. Luckily the Springsteen family has plenty money of cash to burn considering the infinite amount of income his musical career has produced.

Jessica Springsteen missed the cut for the U.S. Olympic equestrian team for London this past year. But she's hoping a new ride and four more years to train will push her through next time around.
