Something new that I have never seen... DIVING HORSES!
Actually, that's a very old sport, Speedy.
Diving horses were all the rage back in the 1940s-1950s in Atlantic City, NJ.
Nobody does it nowadays because of the obvious health liabilities to people and animals.
yeah ive seen those videos, never seen them, they do look old!
they are some brave horses!... and my horse complains about colourful fillers :P
That reminds me of the movie "Wild Hearts Can't be Broken." Maybe I'll have to rent it this weekend...
Yeah I was going to mention that movie, MNT! I love it :) That's the only reason I knew that this existed though.... Anyone know how they teach the horses to do this? Seems EXTREMELY unnatural to me...

BaliDoll - I'm pretty sure back in the day they just pushed them off until they figured it out. :?
wouldn't water get in his nose and ears? Or are horses ears like ours? But still, wouldn't water get up his nose?

That seems quite dangerous!
Can't imagine why anyone would think training a horse to dive is something desirable. Oh well, different strokes, and all that.
the first video is up to date and the second is 50s? i think.
the first one is basically a little pony jumping into a pool from about 5 feet, but the second one is more extreme.
