I say think of pushing a baby out, rather than think of having a hard dump (!!) because even though it's the same or a very similar sensation (not that I've had a baby, but as a female the notion is inbuilt!), focussing on the 'exit hole' tends to make you tense your lower back and push backwards which will brace your pelvis when you actually want it to still move. Pushing a baby out gets you thinking forwards and down, while engaging the corr rather than lower back.
As someone who owns a horse who just luuuuuurves to take off and dump on his front legs at any given opportunity, I am full of half halt, steady, engage, push a baby out, etc techniques :P
