Instructional book about teaching and training horses. The book has approx 150 pages with many photographs.
In this book two great professionals, Benedikt Líndal, master trainer and Friðþjófur Helgason, photographer join hands. They have collaborated successfully before and produced the instructional films Starting horses and Training. Harmony is the final chapter in this trilogy, a beautiful book combining education, ideas and pure feeling. The publisher is Uppheimar in Akranes.
“The collaboration between two clever professionals, a horseman and a photographer, has now produced a particularly beautiful book. In Harmony we find numbers of great photographs, an abundance of knowledge, instructions and countless great ideas as well as stories from an outstanding trainer. The author has managed to produce an entertaining and exciting addition to his two instructional films previously published and to conclude and close the project with this beautiful book.”
Pétur Behrens, one of the founders of FT, honorary member of FT and one of the most respected trainers in the world of the Icelandic horse.
“I have known Benedikt Líndal for 25 years. Early on he decided to make the most of his time, to mature and grow, both as a person and a horseman. This he has achieved. The instructional films Starting horses and Training and now the book Harmony speak for themselves without further testimony: Good work that bear outstanding witness to the author. The tone of the text is similar to the photographs, not too studied, not too formal. The reader sees himself as participant in a discussion with a friend who gives good advice but without dictating to others. Bennis respect for the horse is the red thread through the three parts of this work.
All his life centers around the horse and horse related issues. But in the foreground is always the “Harmony” between man and horse.”
