That's not how it works, and as I said earlier, that creates a crooked horse. And while some crooked horses will manage to brace and contort themselves AND get the lead, that's not 'good' training or riding, and that crookedness will eventually catch up to the horse as training progresses...or doesn't progress as it were.
If the horse is straight, the rider sits as they should, times their aids as they should, the horse will never fail to get the lead. It's really just that simple.
