Entrevista a Viggo Mortensen para revista “Revista Hipica Catalana” por Pilar Massaguer.  

Interview to Viggo Mortensen for "Equestrian Catalonian" magazine by Pilar Massaguer.

 

1)  Pilar:  Es obvio que eres un buen jinete (pudimos verte en LOTR), pero, ¿donde aprendiste a montar a caballo? y fue a raíz de tu trabajo como actor o era una afición que tienes desde la niñez (u otra época de tu vida)

Revista Hípica CatalanaViggo:  Aprendi en Argentina, y tengo lindos recuerdos de caballos que conoci en la Provincia de Buenos Aires tanto como de los  pingos  que me ensenaron cosas en el Chaco hasta mas o menos los once anos. Aparte de la breve experiencia que tuve en la pelicula YOUNG GUNS II con el caballo“Flaxie”en 1990, no tuve la costumbre ni mucha oportunidad de montar a caballo otra vez hasta que rodamos LAS DOS TORRES y EL RETORNO del REY, y recien, mucho mas, en HIDALGO. Me siguen gustando los caballos, lo que hace mucho mas agradable un trabajo en cual se requiere que uno trabaje en practicamente todas las escenas a caballo o acompanado del caballo. Por cierto, debo mencionar que, en las escenas de HIDALGO que se rodaron en Marruecos trabajaron  con Rex Peterson el incomparable maestro espanol Ricardo Cruz y otros excelentes  jinetes de Espana . Ellos venian de trabajar para Minghella en (COLD MOUNTAIN), y despues de trabajar con nosotros se fueron a Nueva Zelanda para ayudar con el rodaje para (THE LAST SAMURAI). Nos llevamos muy bien, y fue un placer poder trabajar un poco con ellos.

Translation:

Pilar:  "It is obvious that you are an acomplished rider (we could see you in LOTR), but where did you learn to ride? And, was it due to your job as an actor or was it a hobby you had since your childhood (or another time in your life). "

Viggo:  "I learnt in Argentina and I have wonderful recollections of horses I met in the province of Buenos Aires and of the nags that taught me several things in the Chaco until I was eleven. Apart from the brief experience I had in the film, Young Guns II with the horse “Flaxie” in 1990, I didn’t have much opportunity of riding horses until we shoot “The Two Towers” and “The Return of The King” and recently and much more in “Hidalgo”. I still love horse, which makes very pleasant a job that required me to work on horse back or in company of a horse most of the time. By the way, I have to mention that the scenes of “Hidalgo” that were shot in Morocco, the knowledgeable Spaniard Ricardo Cruz and other excellent riders from Spain who worked with Rex Peterson. They came from working for Minghella in “Cold Mountain” and after working with us they went to New Zealand to help with the shooting of the “Last Samurai”. We went along fine and it was a pleasure to work with them. "

 

2)  Pilar:  ¿Que tipo de monta aprendiste, o mas bien que tipo de monta realizas?: a la inglesa, Western, u otro tipo.

Viggo:  Aprendi a lo gaucho, que basicamente es Western. En EL SENOR DE LOS ANILLOS tuve que utilizar el estilo ingles en varios momentos, y especialmente durante las primeras escenas que rode a caballo porque no se les habian ensenado a ir con rienda suelta o a responder al “neck reining” (no se como se llama en Castellano - con una mano). Eso hizo un poco complicado el trabajo de pelear con espada o lanza  y mantener control al principio. Pero, despues de un periodo de entrenamiento, ambos caballos, “Kenny” y “Uraeus”, se acostumbraron y me dejaron mas o menos manejarlos con una mano.

Translation:

Pilar:  "What type of riding did you learn, or better, what type of riding do you practice?: English (hunt seat), Western or another type. "

Viggo:  "I learned 'gaucho style' which is basically Western. In the 'Lord of the Rings' I had to ride English in some shots, specially in the first scenes on horseback because they (the horses) were not trained to work on a loose rein or to respond to 'neck reining'. That made the job of fighting with a sword or spear while keeping the control (on the horse) a bit difficult. But after a period of training, both horses 'Kenny' and 'Uraeus' got used to it and allowed me to ride them Pilar Massaguerwith one hand. "
