Spirit Horse Center in the News
Look for Spirit Horse Center in the news! We’ll be on Lakes Splash at 6:30 and 11 p.m. Jan. 25-29 (local cable access in the Brainerd area). We were featured on KAXE-FM’s All Things Equine show Jan. 19 (89.9 FM in the Brainerd area). We’re also honored to have been mentioned in a great story that ran in the Brainerd Dispatch about 7-year-old Danielle Kocur of Brainerd who has been battling chronic myelogenous leukemia for two years. The Brighter Days Foundation paid for riding lessons at Spirit Horse Center for Danielle, who loves horses. You can read the entire story by clicking here. Keep fighting Danielle!
