Horse Is Good


Viggo Mortensen

Horses as partners, as teachers, as fellow travelers asking no favors and returning respect for respect. The horse is good. These images by Viggo Mortensen are from Morocco, South Dakota, Montana, California, Iceland, New Zealand, Denmark, Brazil, Argentina, and perhaps from the view out your window. As Joseph Campbell put it, “Once having traversed the threshold, the hero moves in a dream landscape of curiously fluid, ambiguous forms, where he must survive a succession of trials.” The horse as hero.
