For any adventure to run properly someone must become the leader who must take charge, and is held accountable for all the decisions. In everyday life we make decisions that direct us towards our destiny. Our decisions may send us down a road that benefits us or causes us grief. So, it is important that we make the proper decisions. Many people base their decisions on their opinion, belief, or what directly benefits them. When a decision is made it affects others, or it requires the proper reactions of others to succeed. When dealing with horses your decisions affect and require your horse's response. It is vital to understand how your horse will react or be affected by your decision choices. When a decision outcome does not work properly, many people blame their horse or label it as bad luck. So, if you are feeling life is dealing you a bad hand with your horse, you may need to review how or what you base your decision making on. Decisions can be anything involving you and your horse: How long your horse can be ridden without injury. What feeding program will best aid your goals. When you should apply pressure and when to release pressure. How hard or soft of a cue pressure you should apply. What is the proper counter action if your horse rears. When to or not to correct your horse. Should you apply or release bit or leg pressure. Where to tie your horse.
