By canter ahead I did not mean 'run by' the horse with issues. I don't think anyone should ever run by anyone else.
I've had horses misbehave, but honestly, horses should be trained and tested out before you take them to a major public event. If you can't control your horse enough to at least do a one rein stop and get off, or steer them out of the way of other riders, you should not be on that horse. If your horse is prone to bolting, bucking or rearing, you should try working through the issues beforehand.
I rode a green Ottb on one ride that pranced, crow hopped and cantered side ways at one point. I was able to keep him away from other horses. He was a handful, but no one got rammed, run over, kicked or held up by him, because regardless of his other faults, he could stop, go and turn when asked.
