The Binet-Legendre metric is a canonical  Riemannian metric associated to a given metric  on a given manifold; it has a well controlled behavior under  isometries and   conformal  transformations  that   makes  it  an efficient  tool to solve problems in Finsler geometry by reducing them to their Riemannian counterpart.  In this talk I will survey some recent applications of the Binet-Legendre metrics to solve some specific Finslerian problems
