A Girl and Five Brave Horses is a memoir by Sonora Webster Carver published in 1961. It inspired the Disney film Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken (1991) which is based on, but does not exactly follow, the book. At the age of 20, Sonora Webster Carver joined William Frank Carver's Wild West Show which featured diving horses and performed at Atlantic City's Steel Pier. Although Carver was blinded in a diving accident seven years later, she continued to dive afterward. She wrote "A Girl and Five Brave Horses" documenting her life and her memories of diving horses.
