You have better have a **** good saddle and pony horse to even think of doing that. An ill mannered horse that you are teaching to pony can cause a terrible wreck if he is tied to your saddle. I'm would never recommend that to someone who has never done it before.
Get in an arena, or pasture - some place with some restriction and try having a friend follow behind with a lunge whip to encourage your colt to move forward. Start slowly and take your time working up to a faster gait. Be sure the colt is snubbed up close to you since you don't want him to be able to get behind you, or worse, get to the other side and throw you off balance. Remember, sometimes things happen in the blink of an eye and you want to keep yourself safe.
