Young colt crowding me.

I have a 1yr, and some change,Friesian colt named Ced and when I walk him, he keeps on wanting to lean into me, and he is a big boy. I am new at training horses and what im doing now is just pushing him back with the palm of my hand and saying off firmly not loudly just firmly.

Should I try a elbow or something, he is not seeming to be getting the point.

I don't want to hurt him, but I sure don't want him to hurt me.

Haha when horses are in a herd and they get too close to another horse, that horse will not hesitate to kick or bite the horse that is getting in their "bubble" so I would not worry about hurting him!
Make him back out of your space; don't let him invade it - right now he's young and is testing his boundaries - you have to set firm boundaries so that he won't walk all over you when he gets older and bigger.

So bite him... ok

I'll try a elbow tomorrow on our daily attempt.

Oh if another horse is being walked as well he doesnt do it as much.

Elbows are great for keeping them off you. When I walk my 2 year olds I keep an elbow at the ready to "bite" them if they get too pushy.
