It takes some work, but you should be able to have complete slack in the leadrope with your horse moving with you, wherever you go.
    ^^ This-unless I know it is a really spooky crazy or green horse, who doesn't yet know the "rules". Then I pay more attention to my position and control them more with a slightly shorter lead. I still demand they stay their distance-with a simple twirl of the end of the lead. It only has to "accidentally" hit them in the nose once, and they understand. I also use the same twirl of the lead to move other horses in the pasture away when they crowd me or the horse I am leading.
