Have any of you watched Buck Brannaman?? He is a very good example of natural horsemanship. Yea he has tools, but he can guide the horse without his hands and what looks like without his legs too. It's amazing that we get a chance to learn teh horses language instead of using all these tools which may confuse the horse more than if you just spoke his language.

No one guides a horse (adjusts their speed and direction) by speaking their language. Not noticing a rider's cues isn't the same as a rider not giving them.

Some cues are easier for some horses to understand than others. My mare slows more instinctively and willingly to pressure on the poll than a snaffle bit or a bitless bridle. Others do not like poll pressure. And when she is calm, she will cheerfully stop based on how you sit. But if she thinks she is racing another horse, she will cheerfully give her rider the middle finger salute. THAT is natural!

It was a figure of speech. He is giving cues, duh. But either way, you still don't need a bunch of tools to get the horse to listen.

For me the important word in natural horsemanship is Horsemanship. Good horsemanship has been around since horses were first ridden. Bad horsemanship has also been around just as long. Natural Horsemanship to me is using the least amount of effort, force, pressure, whatever word you like to get the most positive results out of your horse. To always be striving for almost unnoticible stimulus or cues to the horse to get a positive reaction.

I'm terrible at articulating this stuff on a computer screen. Not much better in real life. Sometimes my horses don't have a clue what I'm talkng about.

I've not looked through everything on this site to know if I agree or disagree with it all, but their definition seems to match what I would consider to be natural horsemanship - Natural Horse World Horsemanship

This I have to disagree with. I've seen a lot of Buggys and carts driven with out use of reigns. While I understand its not the norm, it is done.

That is actually a pretty good definition!
