Flossy is well known to many on the British Dressage Forum as a teller of interesting stories and perhaps the odd joke or two. We have selected a few tales for your pleasure.

That special horse

Top competitor just finished his test ,like all top riders he was pointing with one finger at his horse acknowledging the horses contribution for his successes , at the same time he was muttering incoherently “This horse is a genius a miracle horse This horse is absolutely a genius he is a miracle”,
“What do you mean” asked Junior Trainer
“Well “said Top competitor “ I was first to go in the advance 120, to tell you the truce I am still under the effect of the night before, I have more alcohol in my veins then blood , I could not tell the time of day let alone ride a dressage test, I was slumped on good old Bartys back like a rag doll,my condition was some where between comatose to complete incapacitation , every move or turn caused the beer and wine to involuntary come up, I gave the poor horse no help what's so ever and you would not believe it he just went through the test as if he wrote it himself, it was much more accurate and precise then if I have been in charge, THIS HORSE IS SPECIAL ONE IN A MILLION” concluded Top Competitor.
Junior Trainer pondered for a moment and then said “not that special not a miracle by any stretch of the imagination YOUR WIFE WAS CALLING THE TEST FOR YOU AT THE TIME”
