    Half Halts

    Hi guys!
    Once again, I feel stupid asking this but...I'm going to ask anyways I know what a half halt is and why it is used, but how do you perform one? I have done them before, but I haven't done one in a while so it just left my mind.

    Thanks!

    You close both fingers on the reins and pull back slightly with your wrists. Remember, you have to stay loose and relaxed so you aren't jabbing your horse in the mouth, and he has room to go. ;P

    I might not have explained that correctly. It would be easier if I could show you, but yeah.. Lol.

    When I first learned half halts my trainer gave me the analogy of squeezing a sponge...basically just squeezing the reins for about a half a second...:)
