Sonora Webster Carver became one of the most famous horse divers in the world, diving 40 feet on horseback into a tank of water. Webster was blinded after one of her performances in 1931, but continued to dive horses for another 11 years. Learn how this inspiring woman persevered, undaunted by her blindness, in this video from Unladylike2020. Support materials include discussion questions, vocabulary, research extension tips, and an argument-based essay prompt.
