What my Trainers tell me.

Well my jumping trainer tells me to do a half halt type a thing but without using your reins. And with out holding his head up, making him do it. My other trainer says to get a head set behind the vertical and push him forward. Does this make since? I just wanted to ask you guys your opinion. Thanks again.

Your jumping trainer is on the right track encouraging a half halt through your seat and not worrying about this 'head set' rubbish.
If you are being told to ride your horse in a behind the vertical 'head set', disregard that piece of instruction.
