Excerpt: The Power of the Herd, by Linda Kohanov | 30 August 2015 4:18 pm
Author and horsewoman Linda Kohanov is known for explaining "the way of the horse," an experiential wisdom known to riders for centuries but little studied or adapted to off-horse use.
In The Power of the Herd, first reviewed by in hardcover in 2013 and now available in paperback, Kohanov has taken these equine insights into the workplaces and relationships, exploring the benefits of "nonpredatory power" in developing assertiveness, fostering creativity, dealing with conflict, and heightening mind-body awareness.

"There's a serious lack of educational programs that assist military personnel and their families in making the smoothest possible transition from the battlefield to life back home," says Linda Kohanov, founder/director of the Epona International Study Center, which teaches emotional fitness, relationship, nonverbal communication and leadership skills, in part through working with horses. "Many of these servicemen and women have the endurance, intelligence, and discipline to become tremendous assets to this country, but their lack of training in emotional fitness and social intelligence skills becomes a significant hindrance to long term success. Children also suffer from the resulting instability in family life, making the psychological wounds of war a multi-generational phenomenon."
Recognizing that funding sources tend to favor people with severe clinical depression and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Linda and her colleagues have created the Merlin's Spirit Memorial Fund for returning military personnel, veterans and their families. Named for Linda's stallion Midnight Merlin and his son Spirit, the program teaches people advanced personal and professional relationship skills, empowerment, and resilience in the face of traumatic events.
When Linda met Merlin in 1999, he was a stunning black stallion with tremendous untapped potential, but early training made him so dangerous and unpredictable that he had to be kept in an isolated corral. "Some techniques used in training show horses are the same techniques that were traditionally used for war horses," she reveals. "In the wrong hands, these practices become abusive, creating volatile, rage-filled horses. In rehabilitating Merlin, I realized that he had many of the symptoms that veterans with PTSD report, a frightening combination of power, energy and hyper-vigilance leading to explosive outbursts of anger followed by an almost unbearable combination of vulnerability, confusion and shame for his actions. He threatened my life several times, but something in his eyes kept me from giving up on him. Merlin and Spirit
In teaching the frustrated stallion how to respectfully integrate into a herd, Linda tapped what she calls a "fierce sensitivity" in herself and her mares. She learned to set strong yet compassionate boundaries with Merlin while helping him break the cycle of rage and shame that kept him isolated from humans as well as other horses. And she began teaching these same skills to people through activities with gentler, specially trained horses, chronicling her experiences in three best-selling books.
"People were asking for ideas on how they could contribute in his memory," Linda says.
