Springsteen has blessed herself with two phenomenal equines, Don and Naomi. On December 10, in the famed Palexpo Arena, the show jumper was placed 6th in the CSI5* 1.60m Jump-off. The human-equine maneuvered in the challenging course, putting forth their technical abilities. But another stellar performance had the world in wonderment, especially an apparel giant.

Being a woman athlete in a male-dominated sport is in itself the biggest achievement. Since equestrianism deals with huge untameable animals, men competed primarily. But later, more women showed up. So, to accolade the strength and determination the females bring onboard, Tommy Hilfiger Equestrian shared an Instagram story. The official account of Tommy Hilfiger Equestrian captioned, “GIRL POWER, @jessicaspringsteen and Naomi in last night’s CS15* 1.55m @chigeneve.”

For the brand which accelerates gender equality and works towards women’s empowerment, this shout out made sense. In both the events with two of her favorites, the 31-year-old made heads turn. In fact, in the video, the rider-horse duo was seen jumping over every hurdle with great finesse. Undoubtedly, she has been the mainstay of the Grand Prix events.
