Lead rein classes are not being led in the traditional sense. The child will be riding, mum is there on the end of the lead rein incase anything goes wrong but normaly the lead rein is held in the handlers left hand with a loop in it. The leadrein is also only attached to the noseband not to the bit
It is traditional to lead with the rein in the left hand so that your right hand is free to put on the childs leg if it starts to wobble.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
