The half halt is a communication aid between you and your horse. It is your way of bringing your horses attention back to you, in order for you to then give directions about what you want him to do. Unfortunately what often ends up happening many riders is that they are so busy babbling to their horse - via the seat, legs, reins and fingers - that when they ride a half halt, their horse has completely tuned out. He is no longer part of the conversation at all. Simply put, the half halt is all about bringing your horses attention back to you, so you can then convey something to the horse.
