Today you will try the flowchart with your horse.  You observed them a couple days ago, what do you notice today? It’s ok to take another day to observe and then tomorrow you can respond to what they are doing per the flowchart. Or try it today.

What do I do if they go down to graze?

Depending on your horse and their thoughts about you. If you have a horse that has quite a bit of obedience training and they think the human always wants something, you could match steps OR you could just stand still and allow them to graze, and if they get to the end of the lead rope just redirect them back to you.
