The Tao of Equus: A profound book

The Tao of Equus by Linda Kohanov — it is just awesome in the truest sense of the word. I’ll do a proper review when I’ve finished but I wanted to share how totally awed I am by what I’m reading at the moment.

Based on scientific research as well as Linda’s own experience, and discussing biological, psychological and sociological perspectives, this book goes further than any horse book I have ever seen in explaining the bond between people — especially women — and horses, and how these beautiful, noble creatures can lead us to emotional healing if we open ourselves to what they can tell us. The reverse is true also, in that if we just tune in to our horses they can show us how to assist them to heal from past abuse and issues also. And the trained therapeutical instructor can even assist with physical issues too.

I’m pretty gobsmacked at what I’ve been reading: it’s hitting me hard in the gut with every page I turn. I am just grateful I found this incredible book.
