As per rule 36.6.c in PCV Book of Bylaws:

• The leader must:
o Be a competent handler
o Wear correctly fitting, covered footwear
o Never wrap the Lead rope around their hand nor entwine their fingers in the clip or ring
o Keep the pony at a safe distance from other horses and people.
o Be careful when changing direction or pace not to unbalance the rider.
o Recommend the leader: Always lead from the pony’s shoulder where contact with Pony and Rider are optimum
o Hold the lead rope 5 to 10cms below the clip, giving the pony headroom whilst remaining in control.
36.6.d The horse must be bridled and led with a properly fitted halter (worn under the bridle) with a lead rope attached to the Head Collar or a lead line connected to both bit Cheekpieces.
