Now to all of you Natural Horsemanship guru's. I know there is all of that fancy parelli stuff, but what is natural horsemanship to you? I believe that it is just a different way of going about training. There are no specific rules exactly. It's just training in a natural way, using the herd mentality, and the understanding of horses to train in a kinder way. By gaining respect, not by beating them into submission. So I think, I could say I use natural horsemanship to train my horses, but that doesn't mean I walk around with a carrot-stick and teach my horse to walk backwards when I pull on its tail.. (lol not trying to offend anyone on that last comment but I'm just using it as an example, I know that parelli is a lot more then that)
Sorry just a little rant type thing, any opinions on this?
