Natural Horsemanship??

I don't really know very much about natural horsemanship other that it's riding without tack.... correct? But I do think it looks amazing when you see a horse and rider so in touch so I was wondering if someone could tell me more about natural horsemanship and what it's all about.

Natural horsemanship isnt just riding without tack, I don't have quite enough time to explain it is depth but heres a quick answer.... Horsemanship I also groundwork, where the human 'speaks the horses langauge' instead of expecting the horse to speak the humans langauge. All hrose herds have a pecking order, The top horse in the pecking order gets to eat/drink first, and all those things. But they also are repsonsible for the herd, they keep watch for any trouble and if it comes to it they will fight off any threat to the herd. The human is supposed to be the top of the pecking order, If there is a clear pecking order btween the human and horse almost (or no) force is needed, and human and horse work in harmony.

That's all I can think of right now ;) I will post more when I have more time

Sorry for all my questions, I find this very interesting although I can't see myself totally committing to it any time soon! :) You say it's not all about the tack... does that mean you could say you practice natural horsemanship even if you use tack? Thanks!

NH is a state of mind. It has nothing to do with tack or anything. It is how you interact with your horse. How your horse interacts with you. It is teaching them with out cowboying up on them.

There is no one way to do NH. It has been around as long as horses have been around. It is just now there are certain people who have commercialized it.

NH is working with the horse's nature, not against it, understanding how he thinks and what makes them tick, and never ever blaming them. NH is less something you do and more something you are. Are we willing to forget all these rules and limitations the horse world has and get back to our senses and just feel and listen. NH is a lifestyle, as it goes beyond your horsemanship. NH is a lot of things :)

Thanks! Although I can't take credit for the photo, a friend took it. Well... he WAS my pony :'( I move a lot so we had to sell him. That was MY baby.

Thanks Spirithorse.... that was a good way of explaining it.
