I have heard so much about a "half halt" I have been going to riding schools for 5 years before I quit and got my own horse. They never taught me how to do a half halt. I have read up about it and it was so confusing my brain just couldnt take it all in. So I tried doing this on my horse (I have no idea if its right!)
Before I asked him to trot in a straight line I
-Pulled slightly on my reins
-squeezed with my lower leg and my upper leg
He didnt really do anything and I didnt know what to expect so I just nudged him after I gave those signals. Oh its so confusing!!!!
