Bruce Springsteen Watches Daughter Ride For Royals

Filed under: Quick ShotsHorses

Springsteen at royal horse show

It's not exactly the most obvious place that you'd expect to find a legendary rock star.

But there was no mistaking Bruce Springsteen who was at the Royal Horse show in Windsor Thursday.

You may be shocked to hear that Springsteen wasn't at the show just to support his love of animals and the British monarchy.

The rocker came to see his 20-year-old is a nationally-ranked champion equestrian daughter Jessica compete.

Yesterday she took part in the showjumping and was watched by her proud parents.

It is unclear whether the family were introduced to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, who attends the event, Britain's largest outdoor equestrian event.

Queen Elizabeth watches horse show

Jolly good!

This week British monarchy kick off The Royal Windsor Horse Show is the largest outdoor equestrian Show in the UK, with over 3,000 horses and ponies taking part in more than 250 jumping, showing, and carriage driving classes.

Queen Elizabeth was seen enjoying the days festivities Wednesday.

A passionate rider since childhood, the Queen (now 85-years-old) was seen on horseback as recent as last Sunday riding with her grandchildren.

Despite repeated calls by safety campaigners over the years for her to wear a helmet, she is still stubbornly wears her famous knotted headscarf when riding.

Her clothes are still reassuringly formal – white jodhpurs, brown riding boots and a tweed hacking jacket with gloves.

She is just like us! (jk)

Horseback Riding Is Making A Come-Back In Central Park

Horseback Riding Is Making A Come-Back In Central Park

Yay!

Visitors there will once again be able to saddle up under a new city plan to bring back horseback riding to the park that was "designed to be seen by horseback."

Since the closure of Manhattan's last stable, Claremont Riding Academy, in 2007, it's been next to impossible to ride off into the sunset without riding the subway to another borough first.

The 4.2 miles of bucolic bridle paths winding through Central Park, around the reservoir and under bridges, are now mostly used by joggers and dog walkers, Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe told The Post.

After Claremont closed, the city did sign a deal with the Riverdale Equestrian Centre, to offer trail rides by appointment, but those were infrequent and only done on weekends. But now the city now wants a more permanent riding concession.

Each day, horses will be brought to the North Meadow Recreation Center, located in the center of the park near 97th Street, from one of the outer-borough stables.

Prices and hours will be determined by a bidding process and regulated by the city.

super prego Selma blair walks dog

Hope that dog has Selma's OBGYN on speed dial!

The 38-year-old Slema Blair (who is due to pop within the next month) was spotted visiting an equestrian shop in LA after walking her dog, Tuesday.

Clearly is excited to get back in the saddle with her beloved horse after she gives birth.

Just cause she's bout to burst doesn't mean the actresses is gonna ignore her pets - though we'd understand if she had her assistant do the walking.

Selma's not slacking on her professional life either, and has a series of films out this year.

She stars alongside Joshua Close and James D'Arcy in Replicas and alongside Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow and Donna Murphy in the Todd Solondz movie Dark Horse.

A romance with Richard Dreyfuss, called Different Kind Of Love, is also due out this year and she has also signed on for ensemble drama Four Saints, about nurses working illegally near the trenches in Flanders.

John Walsh Polo

Forget the game, can we pet the horse?

America's Most Wanted host John Walsh was spotted trotting along at the AMG Miami Beach Polo World Cup Friday.

Walsh later discribed the sport saying:

"It's a real equestrian discipline. I think you have to have the power and the passion. It is a high adrenaline sport. It is exciting and it is somewhat dangerous."

Walsh adds it is not sport just for the elite.

"Anybody can play polo — I think you just have to have the desire and the passion. It is exciting."

Audrina Patridge Dating HAWT Polo Player

Audrina Patridge plays polo with new man

Reality TV star Audrina Patridge has a new man!

It's not official yet, but apparently she's been spending a lot of time with a seksi Florida polo player named Nic Roldan she met while taping her new show for VH1.

The 28-year-old is a top American polo player who lives in Palm Beach, Florida, where he recently gave Patridge a polo lesson, but apparently she's been giving him tanning lessons on the beach too!

In a text message, he talked about the relationship, writing:

"We are just talking at the moment. Been going on for a couple of weeks :) She is really great."

He's not afraid to use smiley faces! Athletic, hot, AND sensitive! Ha!

A source close to the couple says that while their relationship is just "blossoming" right now, "they're having a lot of fun together."

He looks like a catch to us, Audrina! Good luck!
