5.0 out of 5 stars The Way of the Horse - Outstanding! 5 Jun 2009
Linda Kohanov (of Epona fame) has put together a masterpiece with the collaboration of Kim McElroy who provided such beautiful and poignant illustrations for the cards. If you are looking for a card deck which will help you to predict your future similar to tarot, then this is not for you. Instead, it provides us with a mirror which reflects our true nature seen through the way of the horse (hence the title). I believe it is useful for those who are looking to work through some serious issues in their lives right now, as well as those who perhaps just want an insight into what may be happening that they are not completely aware of. It makes a gorgeous gift too (I got 2 and sent one to my sister-in-law). The cards as well offer so much - Kim McElroy's work is simply stunning. Definitely a must-have whether you are fascinated by horses or not, this will really have you seeing things from an entirely different perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way of the Horse 9 Nov 2007
By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER
Way of The Horse is not a traditional set of tarot cards. The deck itself contains forty cards with stunningly beautiful illustrations of horses. These designs do not follow the normal themes and descriptions as seen in traditional tarot sets. Instead, the themes are related to archetypes in mythology and historical sources. Such archetypes cover a variety of issues within the general topics of experience, leadership, creativity, and transformation. These archetypes are then correlated to the mind set of a horse.

For anyone who has been around horses, you know that horses do not think at all like humans. They do not see good versus bad. Instead, they see each experience as an opportunity to learn about themselves and to grow in their creativity, authenticity, and leadership skills. Thus, in their horse-like worldview, Way of The Horse cards are used more for personal growth than fortunetelling.

Frankly, I think almost every child grew up wanting a pony. Many of us fell in love with horses at a very young age. Just seeing these beautiful illustrations is enough to want to pick up this set. Those that do so will not be at all disappointed. These cards are unique and very well suited to those wishing to work on themselves and grow as strong, creative, genuine beings.

5.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to love horses to love this deck 11 July 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What's included
Way of the Horse comes in an impressive, fold open box, very sturdily constructed. On the left side is a compartment out of which slides the companion book, which is a hardback, cloth-bound, stitched book of 255 pages, including index. The title is embossed on cover and spine. There is no paper book jacket, as you sometimes find with this sort of binding, but then the book does come in its own slipcase. The paper quality is just a tad on the pulpy side rather than slick. The edges of the pages are very slightly ragged, all in all it has a very old-school feel to it. The main problem I have with this arrangement is that the book fits VERY tightly into the slipcase, so that I've had to pry it out with the end of a ruler when I want to get it out of the box. I have solved this problem by using a length of ribbon looped under the book as it goes inside, the two loose ends left hanging out, so that I can grab those and pull the book out.

On the right side of the box is a compartment for the cards, which are encased in their own tuck box. A ribbon is included attached, in the usual way, so that you can use it to pull the tuck box out of the compartment. Too bad they didn't think to include this on the book side. The tuck box was similarly so tight that I couldn't get it open, so once I did get the cards out, I cut the flaps off both ends of the box so that the deck can slide in and out, like a matchbox. (I did the same to my Titania's Fortune cards).

The cards
The deck consist of 40 illustrations of horses. The cards have only the numbers on them. I wrote the titles on with a gold pen.
The cards measure 3.5 x 5 inches (roughly 9 x 12.5cm) and though all feature horses, they are in a variety of styles as far as format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant beyond belief 27 May 2008
I have been using these cards for insight and illumination on all sorts of things in my life from processing feelings to insight on a workshop I am planning. Studying the full set and selecting the card(s) I am drawn to in that moment while holding the 'issue' in my consciousness, has worked particularly well. Always the message is appropriate and insightful. I recommend these cards and book to anyone looking to deepen their insight, intuition and spirit.
