What is a half halt?

...and how can you only half stop. That's what halt means, right?

A half halt is when you slow a horse until he almost stops then send him forward again. It's done to either rebalance a horse who's struggling to properly compensate for the rider, or to get a horse's attention if it's wandering (they do start to daydream sometimes).
