I usually walk on the left side and walk confidently and the horse will follow
no you walk on the left of the horse pushing forward a little on the lead. you only stand in front to make the horse back up.
Yes and no. You should be leading from the left side, slightly in front of the horse. The horse's front feet should track next to you and its head should be at or near your right shoulder.

The safest position to lead a horse from is probably to one side, in line with or slightly ahead of the horse's head. This keeps you out of harms way should the horse be startled by something and bolt ahead, while still being in a position to actually lead the horse. By nature, a horse will follow behind whichever horse it considers to be the leader - in this case, you.
for howrse: false you should stand to the side. Obviously false; that's really dangerous. if the horse spooked or was a bit strong, it would knock you down. Always lead them on the horse's left side. If you are showing your horse in-hand, swap sides when turning so the judge can get a clear view. If you are turning left, get onto the left side. If you are turning right, go to the right side… Read More

It is rarely a good idea to lead a horse by walking in front of him (sometimes it is necessary if you are walking through a very narrow passageway). Ideally, you should walk by his left (near side) shoulder. That is a much safer position to be in, and it allows you to communicate better with your horse.
Your horse needs to see you before you come to close or else it might jump and be frightened and that could be bad. So walk towards the front of your horse but when it is far away and then you need to turn your body towards its side and then it can still see you because of where its eyes are placed. If you walk towards the front of your horse and it wants… Read More
no, you should stand to the left or right of it's head so it doesn't feel like somethings going on.
You should call a trainer or more experienced friend to help you. But generally the best way is to carry a dressage whip in your left hand, while you are leading the horse with your right hand. When the horse starts to push to the front simply bring the handle of the whip up to chest level and let the horse bump into it. He will learn that he is not supposed to go past… Read More
