Jessica will ride her 12-year-old stallion Don Juan Van de Donkhoeve.

Sports Illustrated previously reported she didn’t make the Olympic team in 2012 when her horse suffered leg issues. She started riding at four years of age on her family’s New Jersey farm.

Equestrian champion Melanie Smith Taylor told The New York Post Jessica “has really come into her own this year.”
