Flatwork Basics - How to halt from trot


Halts are an important part of daily training.

It is a tool to help them step under from behind and take more weight on their hind leg.

In this video the horse is unbalanced going into the second halt so leans over his front legs once halted and never quite stands still with equal weight on all four legs.

You can see the right fore slightly shaking.

When going into the halt, prepare your horse by balancing him (half halt), keep your leg on,sit tall, engage your core,  keep your weight in your stirrups.
