Carl Hester: To help your half halts be­come more for­ward...

Imag­ine that those half halts open the un­der­side of your horse’s neck to make it more in the shape of a U in­stead of a V. Carl Hester is a five-time Olympian and a true horse­man. In ad­di­tion to his own po­si­tion on the 2016 Bri­tish Olympic team aboard Nip Tuck, he was also the trainer of all the other Bri­tish rid­ers who clinched the team sil­ver medal in Rio. Hester has Olympic, World and Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship gold, sil­ver and bronze medals to his credit. Most re­cently, he won the in­di­vid­ual bronze medal at the 2017 World Cup Fi­nal in Omaha, Ne­braska. In 2013, Queen El­iz­a­beth awarded Hester an MBE: a mem­ber of the Most Ex­cel­lent Or­der of the Bri­tish Em­pire.
