About
The 1/2-in, front-out and double Arabian dismounts get lumped together both by the code of points and by ease of description. It’s just way easier to call them all double Arabians (two saltos, 1/2 twist, front landing, we’re all fine with it), though the majority of “double Arabian” bars dismounts will actually be closer to this, the half-twisting back tuck followed by a front tuck—the Fontaine—though you will also see true double Arabians.
