Wellington, Fla.—Jan. 3
What do you have if you don’t have a half-halt? The answer, as all of today’s participants on Day 1 at the Robert Dover Horsemastership Week learned, is nothing.
From the young riders’ first lecture of the day—Dover himself explaining the history and concept behind dressage—to their individual lessons with either Dover, new USEF Youth Coach George Williams or USEF Assistant Youth Coach Charlotte Bredahl-Baker, all discovered or rediscovered the value of the half-halt for all movements.
