    How do you HALT!

    I'm having trouble getting Rain to halt square, he's only 3 so i'm not sure if he's ready for it *i don't know if a horse needs to me a certain age to halt square*
    Please help me out, he's very calm, and when I try to get him to halt he'll square up is frong legs, but he wont square up his back legs.

    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.

    I use a little leg and I start to do some half halts, I also start to slow down my hip movent to let him know he needs to slow down. I'm not sure if the hip thing is something I shoud be doing, oh I also use my reins just a little.
