What is Eponaquest?  

At the dawn of the 21st century, horses are breaking out of their roles as beasts of burden, yet they´re far from obsolete.  As horses are no longer required to work in our fields and carry us to war, they´re doing something arguably more important:  working on us. 

Founded in 1997 by author, lecturer and horse trainer Linda Kohanov, Epona Equestrian Services has received international attention for horse training and breeding innovations, as well as educational programs that employ horses in teaching people leadership, assertiveness, personal empowerment, relationship, intuition, and emotional fitness skills.

Amateur and professional equestrians, families, counselors, artists, educators, and business leaders travel from around the world to attend workshops and private sessions with the Eponaquest herd.  Since 2002, Kohanov and her staff have also trained over 150 Eponaquest Instructors who now offer Eponaquest-based programs on five continents.

Eponaquest Worldwide Mission Statement


Eponaquest Worldwide is a multi-disciplinary educational organization where humans, horses and other animals are supported in co-creating a new way of being, one that emphasizes authenticity, collaboration, and experimentation. The emphasis is on learning how to thrive rather than simply survive, expanding both human and animal consciousness/potential.

Eponaquest considers the constant interplay of body, mind, spirit, and emotion, developing intuition, flexibility, and inter-subjective relationship skills to balance Western indoctrination in logic, rigid methodology, competitiveness and objectivity. Ultimately bringing these opposites into an empowered balance. Conventional and unconventional theories on the nature of human and animal consciousness/behavior are investigated, challenged, and constantly updated through a process of experiential investigation.
