CALGARY — The horsey set attending this week’s Spruce Meadows national show-jumping tournament in Calgary shouldn’t be too surprised if they see “The Boss” hooting and hollering in the stands.
Bruce Springsteen and his wife Patti Scialfa are attending the event to cheer on their daughter, Jessica Springsteen, 18, who is one of the competitors.
“My daughter’s about to ride, I’m just here as a parent,” explains Springsteen, who is mostly trying to keep a low profile while in the city, though he and Scialfa were spotted at a local restaurant celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary.
She’s not the only famous child to compete this year.
Georgina Bloomberg, daughter of New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, has returned for another summer of competition at the equestrian centre.
