View Full Version : Dropping the ball in Dressage...A good thing!

I have recently figured out how to and what is meant by Sally Swift in her Centered Riding book, by "dropping the ball in your belly." What a difference it makes in the sability I feel and muscles that felt too tense are immediatly comfortable.....but my ball seems to pop back up to the top as soon as I go into trot or some times just start focusing on something/anything else! Is there a trick to keeping it there or is it just another "muscle memory" issue that takes 10,000 reppetions before it becomes automatic??

Another muscle memory.
