FlyingB I think it was said, "Don't confuse 'natural horsemanship' with good communication." I have to say, I thoroughly agree.
Horsemanship, is horsemanship. It is not natural to the horse, nor to the rider. It is something they both have to work at. All horsemanship is the same- it is listening to your horse, working with your horse (not against him), building a relationship with your horse, and being knowledgable about what you are doing. Some people claim they are horsemen, but they are merely riders. There is a huge difference. But if you take a look at all good horsemen, they all have one thing in common- they have good communication with all their horses.
There are different methods of horsemanship, and I guess Natural Horsemanship is just one of them. I probably use some of the methods as well- but I don't follow one paticular way of doing things. I watch people, take things from them, and develop my own way of working with horses.
Sorry, nobody get mad. Just my two cents.
