Stop the Reopening of the Cruel Diving Horse Show

Atlantic City wants to bring back “high-diving horse” acts to its Steel Pier. These acts haven’t been around since the 1970s — and for good reason, as they involve horses and riders leaping or falling from a 40 foot tower into a swimming pool.

But in a strange nod to nostalgia (the popular TV series “Boardwalk Empire” takes place on Atlantic City’s Steel Pier in the 1920s, when high-diving horses first became popular), Atlantic City wants to bring this antiquated act back into the present day. And the cruel show could be back as soon as Memorial Day weekend.

Animal lover Jennifer Mishler doesn’t think these diving horse acts are “retro” or “nostalgic” — she thinks they’re simply animal cruelty.

So Jennifer started a petition on Change.org to get Atlantic City to cancel its plans to bring back the high-diving horses. Click here to sign Jennifer’s petition calling on local officials to keep animal cruelty out of plans to revive tourism in Atlantic City.

Atlantic City also tried to bring back high-diving horses in 1993 — but a huge backlash caused those plans to be abandoned. Public outcry can do the same now, especially since construction on a horse-diving tower hasn’t begun yet. With so many other attractions proposed (beer gardens, games, and rides), public pressure will swiftly divert these funds into a tourist attraction that will be more fun, lucrative and animal cruelty-free.
