The Half Halt—Demystified! Part 2: Putting Your Horse on the Bit
In Part 1, the rider learned why and how to ride a half halt; now Jane Savoie goes further and discusses exactly when
to use the half-halt aid. One of the biggest whens
is when to put the horse on the bit, and she demonstrates the many benefits gained: your horse will become more obedient, more graceful, and more athletic. Finally, Jane explains how a rider can superimpose a half halt over the aids given for different dressage movements. Her fresh and innovative approach to teaching this often misunderstood aid will help all riders, many of whom may have struggled for years.
