I started reading, then gave up.
Call it what you want, natural, conventional, bareback, bit, bitless.
Training is training, you can do it with what gadgets here and there and what means you must, but the general consensus to train a good horse is the same, just with different results for different levels, disciplines and uses.
There is another thread in the natural horsemanship section. If it was meant to be "natural", we wouldn't be riding the horses.
