I glance down if I can't feel it. If I am at a show, I do it sneakily so the judge doesnt see.
I look to see if the inside leg is "leading" the way. If your horse feels all wonky going around the corner, then you are probably on the wrong lead.
For a flat class...fix the lead as soon as possible....with either a flying change, or a simple change. For a hunter class over fences, most people change the lead in the corner after the jump if they did not get it over the fence.
