Not sure. I am just now starting to work my yearling off of my other mare. I am starting first by moving her around the pasture and starting next month I am going to try ponying for the first time.
Way to contradict yourself.That's right she is to far forward. She should be at the same place you want her at when you lead her on the ground.
I would never lead this way. The horse's head should be at YOUR shoulder when leading from the ground. Otherwise, the horse is leading you.Technically when leading a horse on the ground you should be at its shoulder, thus if you were to lead a horse from anouther horse and still be at the horses shoulder then the horse would very easily be able to bite the other on the neck.
