It is not only you who is learning how to perform a half-halt – your horse is too.
Unless your horse is well schooled don’t expect a half-halt to work miracles on your first few attempts.
Ask for only a small difference at first and reward your horse for responding.
If you have problems achieving the half-halt, have a lesson on a more experienced horse who is used to half-halting as he will show you which aids work and what it should feel like. You will then be in a better position to ride the movement on your own horse.
