Hi Bill
An OMS steel 45 may be a bit big for a pony tamer. 
I'd try hanging it on your front side like a stage
bottle. There are a few good web-pages on stage bottle
rigging, so have a look witha good search engine.  If
you're carrying a bottle that's that big, have you
ever considered using doubled up 80's?  That would
solve the air usage problem, and the second 80 is
nearly the same weight as a steel 45.
Good luck
