Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"In this stunning work, Linda Kohanov explores a powerful and exciting brand of therapy: one where the patients are two-legged but the psychiatrists have hooves! Linda examines the fascinating interchanges and psychological growth that can occur when we honor horses as our teachers and healers. Her revelations are breathtaking and her writing is sterling. This landmark work is not just a celebration for horse lovers, but for all animal lovers everywhere. Read it and treasure it!"
— Amelia Kinkade, author of Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers

"Linda has the courage to go beyond the limits of our current beliefs in order to help all beings. These conceptual and experiential stretches are just what we need in these challenging times. Cherish her insights into the remarkable healing connections with our Kindred Spirits and allow them to transform you. Read, learn, and blossom!"
— Allen M. Schoen, MS, DVM, author of Kindred Spirits: How the Remarkable Bond between Humans and Animals Can Change the Way We Live

"Daring, deep, and right on target. Kohanov's work with horses and healing may be startling and challenging to many mainstream horsetrainers and psychotherapists, but it is a head-nodding, knee-slapping affirmation to those who have experienced — over and over again — the astounding potential of the human-animal relationship. Beautifully done!"
— Susan Chernak McElroy, author of Animals As Teachers and Healers

"Linda Kohanov has done every human a favor by helping us build a bridge of equality and respect between ourselves and another species. Interspecies dialogue — the opening she gives us — I hope we all can pass through. Certainly every highly sensitive person will be glad to know the highly sensitive horse. If you love horses and have inherited a vein of sensitivity, you must read her books."
— Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D., author of The Highly Sensitive Person

"Linda Kohanov shares compelling stories from the world of horse-and-human relationships — stories that can help each of us rediscover the intelligence of our hearts, and reconnect to our native ability to converse in the universal language of authentic emotions. Linda's empathy, dedication, and deep respect for animals — not as pets or trophies, but as friends and mentors — shines through every page."
— Karla McLaren, author of Emotional Genius: Discovering the Deepest Language of the Soul

"For those who have not discovered the synchronicities of the human-equine world, Riding between the Worlds provides a profound opening of that window — well worth the trip."
— C. Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D., founding president of the American Holistic Medical Association --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Or if you simply want to read a great book about horses, this is the one.
Pamela DeMuth
The way Linda Kohanov researched this subject was very apparent in the way she was able to present other people's work, such as Karla McLaren's theories on emotions.
"hollyfitz"
In writing this book she shares this and allows us to look for deeper connections in our own relationships whether it be horses or people.

Reading this book and the Tao of Equus got me back to riding again. I've always loved horses, but felt that I was too old, too out of shape, too inept. Reading these books and absorbing the wisdom made me get out of my chair and start lessons again. So here I am, over 50, trotting around a ring escorted by mostly 12 and 13 year olds,who are far better than me, loving every minute of it.
The way Linda Kohanov researched this subject was very apparent in the way she was able to present other people's work, such as
Karla McLaren's theories on emotions. She tied it all together for me. For anyone who wants to learn to be real, authentic, and loving..this is your book.

One of a few books everyone in the world needs to read!
Riding Between The Worlds offers true deep healing through the way of the horse.
People dream of a world of Peace, a world of Healing, a world of Love; Linda is one of the light workers that is creating and living in that world today. She guides, assists, and holds the sacred space for others to transform. The world we all long for in our hearts, whether or not we are consciously aware of it.
My heart opens to Linda, for the personal healing and feelings brought forth in me! (aaah to actually "feel" my feelings, what an experience!). My love of horses rekindled, I now see them for the magnificent beings of deep wisdom they are.
With my hands on my heart and tears of joy, I send my gratitude to Linda and all her four legged and two legged healers.

Once again, Linda has done an excellent job of discribing the nuances of the horse/human dynamic. Linda skillfully describes how our thoughts, fears and emotions influence our relationships with both horses and humans. Riding Between the Worlds is a must-read for anyone who wants to develop subtle communication skills with horses. I found this book to be more instructional than The Tao of Equus. In this book she not only breaks out key elements, but also provides helpful charts in the appendix, which are good resources and references.

This book is a must read. Elegantly written, a fascinating subject presented in a graceful, yet scientific manner. I could not put it down until finished. And I plan to read it again, just as soon as I read Linda Kohanov's other horse book, "The Tao of Equus". I am not a horsewoman, but I learned to love the unique healing gifts horses have in their relationships with us two-leggeds. My thanks to Linda Kohanov for expanding my awareness in this field. Her elegant prose is joy to experience.

Format: Hardcover
Like the Tao of Equus, this book will probably mostly appeal to Highly Sensitive People, but it is good information for the other 80% of the population. After reading some of the reviews for the Tao of Equus it is clear that some of that majority either aren't interested or are incapable of understanding the information presented in these two books. Nevertheless, it is a courageous act on the part of Linda Kohanov for the rest of us, that 15-20% who have been squashed, like the horses, for being extraordinarily sensitive and intuitive. If this sounds like "whining" to you then you probably won't get it even though the author presents the information in a thought-provoking and often emotionally-charged manner. You'll never convince those of us who cried and were moved the whole way that it's "fluff." It's healing for us, healing we've been waiting a long time for. Thank you, Linda, for speaking out, for empowering me and for being an advocate for the horse "field."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I saw the beautiful cover of this book, and the intriguing title, I couldn't wait to read it. It promised mysteries and a wild ride into the unknown. Actually, the riding is transformative. The author overcomes a destructive marriage to find her way back to life through her interactions with some very wonderful, talented, compassionate and truly honest animals. A lifetime of fascination with, and interaction with horses leads her into an astonishing field of work, using members of her herd as therapy animals, in the treatment of trauma victims and people with emotional problems.

There is so much to this book that resonates, for anyone who has ever ridden a horse, or wanted to, or just enjoys watching them. Some of the stories are just inspirational. There is a wonderful section in which her beloved mare, Rasa, prematurely foals, and a community of helpers keep the young horse warm with body heat and take turns milking his dam so he can nurse. What a fantastic story.

Some of the horses are stories themselves. There's Noche, the abused horse, who is tender and kind with abuse victims. There is Merlin, a disturbed stallion, who finds love. There is Rasa, a powerful empath and spiritual guide.

I kept waiting for the book to turn New Age-y, but it's not preachy at all. This is one woman's journey that touches and heals. I won't look at horses the same way again.

Linda uses her experiences with her own herd of horses to enlighten us to our own emotional process. What horses can teach us is a lot! Linda explores the highly attuned language of the horse and how they react to our subtle cues and emotions. She shows us that humans and horses can work together with the intention of healing and get remarkable results on emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Her case studies are amazing. This is mindblowing work and is relevent for all of us as we struggle to access our true feelings, reach our potential, and deepen our connection to all our relations.
