The diving horse show at the Atlantic City Steel Pier was shut down in the 1970's, but the event is set to return this summer. Riders mount horses and then dive from the tall pier into the water below. This dangerous and cruel event is terrifying for the horses and causes injury to both the animals and their riders. There is plenty of summer fun to be had at the pier without harming these horses. Please ask Atlantic City Steel Pier President Anthony Catanoso, the New Jersey Amusement Association (where he is a Director), and others in a position of influence to cancel plans to bring this event back after so many years.
