By Linda Benedik

Linda Benedik is an equestrian author, clinician, trainer, and riding instructor based in Maryland. She is the founder of “Harmony With Horses,” a unique program that blends mind-body practices with classical horsemanship.

A life-long equestrian artist and student of the horse, Linda began her riding career in Maryland hunt country. Introduced to dressage in the early 1970s, it quickly became her passion. After a series of apprenticeships with traditional trainers as a young rider, Linda attended Lake Erie College in Ohio, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Equestrian Studies in 1981.

An innovative equestrian educator, Linda continues to study and teach academically. Dedicated to facilitating the whole-body learning process inherent to riding, and for the safety and enjoyment of rider and horse, she promotes a solid foundation in the Basic Seat. Students benefit from Linda’s specialized teaching style, which is intuitively tailored to the individual and integrates her experiences in music, art, yoga, dance, visualization, meditation, and other types of bodywork.

The American Quarter Horse Journal Says:

 “Classical yoga in beautiful surroundings…anyone with a tension problem or ‘show nerves’ might benefit from this.”

Horse & Rider Magazine Says:

“This unique perspective and understanding sets them apart from other yoga videos you may already have—or it’s a great introduction to yoga if you’re just beginning to practice.”
