Mastering The Half-Pass - By Nikki Alvin-Smith
The half-pass should be a floating effortless movement for the horse. This is one of my favorite movements to ride, as this lateral movement truly is a dance. It is also one of the most beneficial movements for the horse as it helps to develop suppleness in the horse’s back particularly in his sacro-iliac area. It affirms whether the horse is evenly engaging both hind legs and whether he is lifted and free in his shoulders and truly moving forward to the bit with a soft correct contact. It also enhances his ability to shift his center of gravity and to flex and develop his musculature as on one side his muscles are contracted (concave side) and the other the muscles are elastic and stretching (convex side).
