About
The 1/2-in, front-out and double Arabian dismounts get lumped together by the code of points, but they are distinctly different dismounts. The double Arabian features a half turn into two front saltos, while this one is a back salto with 1/2 turn into a front salto.

They sort of get lumped together in general reference and all called double Arabians, but most theoretical double Arabian bars dismounts you see will be closer to the Fontaine than to the kind of true double Arabian you’ll see on floor.
