    Please enlighten us as to just how you define each because I think everyone else here is just shaking their head. I know I am.

    That could be the subject of an entire thread; What ARE traditional ways of training? (as opposed to Natural Horsemanship ways)

    Great minds work together???

    I was just trying to think of what to say in a thread that would encourage each person's definition of 'traditional' versus 'Natural.

    I'll have to think on this some more.

    Given the OP is in Jordan, perhaps she is thinking of traditional Jordanian methods?

    I'll be honest with y'all - when I think of "traditional methods", I tend to think of beating the hell out of the horse. I realize dressage riders, jumpers, good stockmen, etc have used better methods for a great many years, but 'jumping on and dominating them' used to be a lot more common, from what I can remember of being around horses in the 70s...

    Whatever the riding style, sounds like its time to step up your game and become a better rider! Consider it an experience that will change the way to ride forever.

    A lot of what I considered "traditional methods" are things the NH movement has "borrowed," twisted, and commercialized.
