Overview

The Tao of Equus: A Woman's Journey of Healing and Transformation through the Way of the Horse by Linda Kohanov

In The Tao of Equus, author Linda Kohanov intertwines the story of how she awakened to the spiritual presence of horses with compelling mythology, research, and personal anecdotes. The result is an extraordinary story of healing and communication that turns our conventional understanding of these amazing creatures upside down.
A horse trainer and equine-facilitated therapy practitioner, Kohanov first began exploring the horse human connection in the early 1990s. When her black mare, Rasa, became lame, Kohanov was plagued by a series of sinister dreams and premonitions. Finally, prompted by her dreams, she canceled a risky surgery to save Rasa's potential career in competitive riding. To relate to the injured horse outside conventional equestrian pursuits, Kohanov immersed herself in the day-to-day activities of the herd. In the process, she discovered that horses are intensely emotional, intuitive, intelligent beings. They are true reflections of our deepest souls. Over time, she discovered their extraordinary ability to awaken intuition in humans, while mirroring the authentic feelings people try to hide, makes these animals powerful therapeutic teachers.

Being a horsewoman, I was deeply moved and amazed by this book. It was beautifully written and inspirational. It made me appreciate and deepen my relationship with my horse that much more. Anyone with a love for these magnificant creatures should read this book!

Here's the thing. Linda Kohanov is an intensely spiritual, intelligent woman. Likewise,her book is intensely spiritual and intelligent. So much so that it's a little hard sometimes to find the meaning amidst the flowery prose and clever writing. If you can sort out WHAT she's trying to say through HOW she says it, it can be very enlightening. Although it took me forever to read (and re-read to get the meaning) it successfully altered my relationship with my horse... in a positive way.

The Tao of Equus is not for those with strict views and conventional ideas. If you're willing to open your mind to new, unconventional opinions, however...this book comes highly recomennded. Linda details innovative thoughts, and many inspirational discoveries in this incredable novel. She clearly knows what she is talking about. An excellent read.

I read this book and it gave me the most wonderfull explanation of my relationship with my quarter horse, Kim. I feel all women who love horses should read this book. I am giving it as a gift to a young lady who loves horses as well.

If you own/want a horse you have to read this book. Period. This book will teach you more than any of the pop culture horsetrainers (Lyons, Anderson, Gawani) ever will.
