Awareness. 
Always be aware of what state of mind your horse is in before asking him to do something for you. If he's in a reactive state then he won't learn much from you. Alway's make sure he is relaxed and focused on you before you begin. He must be in a thinking state to understand what you are asking of him.

Each day I'm feeling
I am asking my horse to yield his . I'm not rushing him. I'm allowing the horse to make the decision to yield. 
Building Trust.
for more trust.

This is how you build a relationship first and then leadership follows.

Communication.
Always keep your inside hand slightly above the outside hand so your seat will stay in the center. If you are having problems dropping your inside shoulder, this will fix the problem.

 

Stop Frustration.
Start your training knowing there will be resistance at the start because your horse won't understand what you are asking from him.

Apply the smallest amount of pressure. 

Always release quickly when your horse releases.
Always end on a positive note.

Study your horse from the inside out - - not from the outside in.
A common problem for the rider is they are always focused on getting the body in a certain position, without understanding their horse's state of mind when they get into the desired position. This is extremely important. Ask this question: is my horse in the thinking state or the reactive state? If he is in the thinking state then he's starting to trust you. And when he's trusting you this will mean he is mentally soft and physically soft, which takes away resistance in the area(s) you're working.
If your horse is giving you problems, this may mean he is not wanting to yield in a particular area indicating he's not soft and therefore, not fully trusting.
