    Judging by all of your posts on this forum, I really think you could benefit from some lessons and a trainer.

    Roy, could you provide some details please. Like HOW you try to lead it, how much experience you have, what kind of horse is it, what exactly it does when you try to lead, etc.

    Do you own a donkey or know someone who owns one? Tie your colt to him in the pasture for a day or two and he will lead like a charm! :)

    I am really beginning to suspect that OP is a troll.

    Can you get your horse to go backwards? If you can, make him/her back up a lot. Keep going backwards, maybe then he/she will go forwards?

    Maybe your horse is testing you? The more the horse wins, the harder it will be for you to win any battle. Be as stubborn as a donkey, and when your horse does what you ask, reinforce good behavior with praise.
