On the forehand, not square and the rider's position is not correct.
One good thing I can say is that the horse seems to be stretching into the contact, but sacrificing everything else.
http://mb-dressage.com/graphics/halt.jpg This is a better halt for the lower levels, the rider is sitting correctly, the horses hind legs are square and engaged and he is standing with equal weight on all four legs. The only thing I would correct is the placement of the front legs, they should be slightly more forward.

I meant the front legs. There are pretty even.

Yes, they are, but in dressage the halt is not judged for just being even in the front legs. You asked for a dressage person's critique and I gave you one.

Maybe this one is a poor example.
What about this one.

Oh no I'm not mad I was just excited that I got her front legs so square.

I agree with what Anabel said about the halt in that photo 100%. The only nice thing about that halt is the way the horse is stretching into contact.

You didn't specify that you wanted only front legs, you asked for a critque of a halt. Keep in mind- you posted a picture asking for critiques and you may get comments that you don't like.

I'm not mad I guess I should've specified but I'd thought it would be obvious that I meant the fronts.

All of those pictures the horse is not square or engaged behind and the rider could be slouching less. The second one has a better uphill balance and the third is back to being downhill.
