What is Natural Horsemanship?

From Wikipedia:

"Natural Horsemanship is the philosophy of working with horses by appealing to their instincts and herd mentality. It involves communication techniques derived from wild horse observation in order to build a partnership that closely resembles the relationships that exist between horses."

In other words, it is a method of working with the horse in two-way communication, in a partnership, rather than a master / slave relationship.
