Find out what a spirit horse is, why it is so rare and how it is helping one woman deal with her PTSD.
There is a very special kind of horse that ... at one point ... was almost extinct. And the Ojibwe people are now trying to bring them back. The numbers are still very low, just under one hundred and fifty. Two of them are being showcased at the International Plowing Match in Verner right now. Including a newborn foal. The CBC's Jan Lakes spoke with one of the women trying to bring back the hoses..also known as spirit ponies. Andria Dyer is also with the Canadian Cowgirls group who are performing daily at the Match.
