When you lead a horse, the horse needs to have respect for you and you also need to be confident when leading.
Absolutely yes to all that. If you are standing in front of the pony and trying to force him to walk on the he will dig his heels in! (Not saying that you're doing this, of course).
The ideal way to lead an experienced equine is to stand by his LEFT shoulder and when asked to walk on, he will follow your lead.
A youngster requires you to walk slightly in front of the shoulder.
