(Yahoo!) - Bruce Springsteen must be one proud dad! His 22-year-old daughter, Jessica, was just named the equestrian ambassador for Gucci's line of riding clothes. The luxury brand's creative director, Frida Giannini, issued a statement saying, "Jessica is a great horsewoman, with a very exciting and positive riding style." She added, "Jessica brings the elegant, dynamic spirit of Gucci alive, and I have ensured that the design of this new wardrobe provides her with pieces that manage to be both technically correct and stylish."
And Jessica is equally excited about the opportunity, saying, "I have been riding since I was four years old, and grew up around horses. I love the freedom you feel on horseback, and enjoy the discipline of competition. Riding in the collection that Frida has created for me is an honor and great fun — it combines the best of sport and style."
The Boss's daughter got her first pony, named Muffin, when she was just years old. Today she is a student at Duke University and is a nationally ranked equestrian. In fact, Jessica was an alternate rider for the United States at the 2012 Summer Olympics.
