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.
