Jessica & Bruce Springsteen @ Paris Eiffel Jumping, Paris July 06-07 2014

 June 06 with Elliott Murphy & Gaspard

After attending the Grand Prix de Diane last month in Chantilly, we're back to see some  Horse racing this time just around the corner @ Champ de Mars next to the Eiffel Tower for some Jumping.
We went there on saturday just after seeing Argentina defeat Belgium for the World cup.
Bruce was already there on friday to see his daughter ride but we couldn't miss France- Germany quarter-finals.
On this saturday evening we're seating in the "riders lounge", lots of -people- in the "vip lounge" mainly French actors & actresses ( Guillaume Canet , who's riding, with his missus Marion Cotillard , Marina Hands, who's also a rider and a few others).
Bruce Springsteen is here with Patti supporting his daughter Jessica who's part of the American Team and is one of the best rider. Bruce's friend Elliott Murphy and longtime Paris resident is here as well with his wife and son Gaspard.
 Rachida Dati mayor of Paris' 7th district is also there...

JUNE 07:  Bruce, Patti & Jessica and Charlotte Casiraghi

Sunday afternoon we're back @ the Paris Eiffel Jumping, Jessica is riding and has done a pretty good run, being among the 7 finalists ( on more than 40 riders) unfortunately not winning and always supported by his parents.
The weather is awful the whole day with showers but we're once again in the "riders lounge" protected from the rain but still it's cold. Hard to believe it's july.
This time we went to say hello to Bruce and had a quick chat with him,
 Jessica didn't win but was in the final
