LONDON (AP) — Her ride's here.

Bruce Springsteen's daughter has bought a gold medal-winning horse from the London Olympics with hopes of competing for the United States in showjumping at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Peter Charles rode Murka's Vindicat W in a jump-off to clinch the Olympic team title for Britain last month. He says the 10-year-old gelding has been sold to Jessica Springsteen.

Charles says on his Facebook page, "I wish Jessica the best of luck with him and I am sure he will make her proud, too."

The fee paid for the horse known as "Vinnie" wasn't disclosed.

The 20-year-old rock star's daughter started riding at age 5 and missed the cut for the U.S. Olympic equestrian team for London.
