About
The double Arabian and the 1/2-in, front-out 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 the half-twisting back tuck followed by a front tuck—the Fontaine.

You will, however, see some of these true double Arabians where the 1/2 twist takes place before two front saltos, but they are quite rare. That’s primarily because this dismount is rated D, yet so much more difficult to land than the majority of more famous D dismounts.
