Many people who love horses describe them as having a subtle, intuitive knowing -- what writer and equine pioneer Linda Kohanov calls black horse wisdom, "wisdom shrouded in mystery, wisdom that's felt more deeply than can ever be explained."
In this powerful follow-up to her groundbreaking work The Tao of Equus, Kohanov introduces new, provocative theories about the human-horse connection, theories supported by in-depth evidence from the round pen. "Horses," she maintains, "model an embodied spirituality, one that is both fully present in this world and deeply connected to the soul's divine origins." Kohanov explores how these animals support us on both levels, leading us to unexpected realizations about fear, intuition, awareness, empowerment, and above all, authenticity.
Riding between the Worlds not only continues Kohanov's amazing personal journey of transformation with her herd, it also relates numerous anecdotes of equine-facilitated healing, coupled with lucid explanations of the processes behind them. These stories demonstrate the undeniable connections that people and horses around the world are increasingly recognizing. They document the profound changes that emerge as taboos against treating animals as equals break down.
From intimate stories of cathartic breakthroughs in the saddle, to the moving tale of the birth of the newest member of Kohanov's herd, Riding between the Worlds presents a daring multidisciplinary exploration of the powerful spiritual, emotional, and psychological lessons horses embody. It delivers another tour de force from one of the equine world's most insightful writers, teachers, and trainers.
