If you can keep adjusting your leadership to be more dependable, flexible, understandable and intelligent, the horse is more willing to form a loyal partnership and put a greater effort into his performance. The biggest mistake people make in their relationship and communication with horses is to not understand that the development of leadership with horses should be spent in managing the connection, bond and trust through attentiveness. Being attentive, you can take care of the changing attitudes in the horse and to the changes in the environment and how to keep a horse willing before he gets out of hand. If you do not have respect and trust on a horse, you are not likely to be able to tell him what to do and in the same breath expect him to take care of you. This kind of horse is hard to find.
