Evil ... but interesting to look at. This newly $102 million revitalization  is scheduled  to be completed in summer 2015. The  return of the diving horse has been  announced during a presentation for a $6 million loan for the project’s $20 million first phase from the New Jersey  Casino Reinvestment Development Authority on Feb. 1.About 50,000 people have since signed one of several online petitions against the plan to bring back the diving horse... Craziness. I hope this never happens…

The owner of Atlantic City’s Steel Pier says he’s dropping a plan to bring back the legendary Diving Horse after animal rights activists lodged fierce criticism. The act, which ran on the pier from the 1920s to the 1970s, featured a horse and a rider plunging into a 12-foot-deep tank from a platform 40 feet in the air.

Hudson Horseplay: Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken

Feb. 3, 1989: Apprentice jockey Nate Hubbard hung on for second literally when his horse, Sweetwater Oak, stumbled near the finish line at Golden Gate Fields and flipped the rider out of his saddle. As he tumbled forward, Hubbard grabbed on to the fillys neck and hung in mid-air until the race was over. The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race. autumngreer
