Anebel... how do you half halt. I was taught a half halt involves deepening your seat, sponging the rein. Then again, I had a cheap 20$ an hour hunter coach who had taught me to stick my bum out while posting.
So essentially, could those advanced moves be performed without the double bridle, even if it meant the rider having to move. (I realise that this would be of no use in a competition). Not that I plan on stressing out my horse with more advanced moves, I`m just trying to understand the concept really.
