I know! Read some comments saying anyone can sit on a horse and be lead around.

As I said, haven't seen the video but it sounds like he has amazing position and being 'lead' on a green pony?! Takes more than just sitting.

I just see it and 'Awhhhhhhhhh' and get broody!

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.

Will check it when I go home!

I showed my dad.. told him he didn't love me enough to let me do this when I was young. I had a very unamused look in response!
