On April 16, 2019, South Jersey Beer Scene published Tun Tavern Launching Diving Horse Line of Craft Beer Paying Homage to the Steel Pier Icon.
For nearly half a century Atlantic City’s Steel Pier was home to one of the most amazing attractions in the world, the Steel Pier Diving Horse. Up to 4 times a day an energetic, well-trained, water-loving horse would dive from as high as 60 feet from an elevated platform into a large pool for a throng of spectators. Usually an attractive young woman in a bathing suit would ride on the back of the fearless steed as it jettisoned through the air and into the water. The horses trained for several months and only the most valiant were selected for the big show.
