    on your feet, on the hoof

    What do "on the feet" and "on the hoof" mean in the following?

    With practice, this exercise will help you to be more creative, innovative and decisive 'on your feet.' .......... This is more like a decision-making process than a creative one, but it is extremely useful for making decisions 'on the hoof.'

    Do both mean "deciding on something quickly or independently"?

    Thank you.

    Do both mean "deciding on something quickly or independently"? Yes, but also, in addition to "deciding", responding quickly to a question or in a statement about an issue.

    Thank you.
