no, Blue just gets exited, and a regualr half halt doesn't work. It is what the horse needs, not what a trainer "recomends". Blue just runs through a half halt, and to not get her and myself killed, I need to give a slight pully rein. And sorry, but Blue is one of the best trained horses around, so I really don't think you have any room to say she needs better training.
