How are you asking for the halt? What has seemed to work for me is to keep light contact with the reins, and use seat/legs to drive him into the halt. This will help keep him balanced when he stops, and he will be able to stop square more naturally. 3 is not too early to pratice this, just know it will improve with time, experience, and practice.
