Equestrian Life is an online community for horse people.
We bring together horse people across all disciplines, breeds and sports.
We invite you to connect with others who love horses as much as you do.
A half-halt is defined as a momentary rebalancing step. Think of a plant growing from your lower legs up through your seat, tighten your abdominal muscles, take back the reins, then give the reins, release your abdominal muscles but hold your seat and core until the horse’s hind legs take more weight. This changes the horse’s balance to weight their hind legs.
