It was more than amazing. The insights were incredible. Should be a "must have" reference for anyone doing any kind of intuitive work, life coaching, psychological counseling, horse training or training people to be around horses. Mar 12, Audrey rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book. The author talks about equine assisted psychotherapy.
I learned a great deal about the process of healing from a horse's vantage point. Horses, like all animals are pure source energy and they do an amazing job of helping us to remain authentic and truthful.

This is the next step in Linda's journey. This book was a great read for me, maybe not for everyone as it is very psychological but those who value horses should read.

We may not be as smart or powerful as we think we are when it comes to the big scheme of things. Jul 20, Bhadra Kleinman rated it it was amazing. Although I have never been particularly drawn to horses, I read this book on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm very, very glad I did! The inspirational accounts of personal growth and change, as a result of individuals interacting with horses, are what moves me most about the book.

It seems that horses have the capacity to sense when people are "incongruent," that is, for example, they're trying to smile and act happy, even though they're upset or troubled. People who are like that make hor Although I have never been particularly drawn to horses, I read this book on the recommendation of a friend, and I'm very, very glad I did!
People who are like that make horses very upset. According to Linda, once the person admits to themselves what they really feel, the horse calms down immediately, it's not necessary for the person to understand why they feel whatever they're feeling.
I recommend this book highly, not only to people who are interested in horses, but to everyone who is interested in expanding their understanding of themselves, or in spirituality in the broadest sense, or in expanding their understanding that humans are just one of the species around. I found the theorizing a little far out at first, but as I went along, it seemed to make more and more sense.
Riding Between the Worlds: Expanding Our Potential Through the Way of the Horse by Linda Kohanov
Jul 24, Jocelyn rated it it was amazing. I came across it by total chance, even though I have been deeply fascinated by Equus therapy for a while. Linda's voice reminded me of my own inner voice and I found myself in so many of the stories shared in this book. I cried along with several of them, finding deep parallels and therapy in the experiences of her participants.

Very intelligently written with lots of interesting insights.

Grabbed this because I enjoyed "Tao of Equus", but was unimpressed with this book. Jul 18, Maria Jansson rated it really liked it. Some revolutionary thoughts, when it comes to the wisdom horses volunteer to share with us. Very interesting reading, with many case studies about the healing potential of the horse-human bond. Some things I would have to digest further, to fully understand, others I can clearly relate too.
Horses are highly sensitive to energies, and the calmer, more quiet we humans are, the more we can tune in to their vibrations.
Something that is explained time after time in "Riding between the worlds". One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. 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. This book is a fantastic follow up to the Tao of Equus! That book was fascinating, and this kicks it up a notch! I was delighted to see that Ms. While reading the Tao of Equus, that book kept popping up in my mind --it is so relevant to the discussion!
It confirms my thought that pursuing a future in Equine Facilitated Therapy might be a good fit for me. I am very grateful to both authors for their groundbreaking work! See all 69 reviews.
