The Horse and Jockey


The Horse and Jockey!

This is a rare glimpse from America of the Horse and Jockey diving formation is a real blast from the past.

Once common in pools all over England, diving has fallen by the wayside as changing attitudes and our risk averse culture has reshaped the swimming experience. In its day (not so long ago), diving inspired young swimmers whilst entertaining the nervous.

When the divers reached the water, the jockey would lie back, diving feet first.
