After you have been out with the horse a little while, you can lead him about as you please.
IMPORTANT: Don't let any second person come up to you when you first take him out. A stranger taking hold of the halter would frighten him, and make him run. There should not even be any one standing near him to attract his attention, or scare him. If you are alone, and manage him right, it will not require any more force to lead or hold him than it would to manage a broke horse.
HOW TO LEAD A COLT BY THE SIDE OF A BROKEN HORSE.
If you should want to lead your colt by the side of another horse, as is often the case, I would advise you to take your horse into the stable. Attach a second strap to the colt's halter, and lead your horse up alongside of him. Then get on the broke horse and take one strap around his breast. Under his martingale, (if he has any on,) holding it in your left hand.
This will prevent the colt from getting back too far. Besides, you will have more power to hold him, with the strap pulling against the horse's breast. The other strap you take up in your right hand to prevent him from running ahead. Then turn him about a few times in the stable, and if the door is wide enough, ride out with him in that position.
If not, take the broke horse out first, and stand his breast up against the door, then lead the colt to the same spot, and take the straps as before directed. One on each side of his neck. Then let someone start the colt out. And as he comes out, turn your horse to the left, and you will have them all right.
