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.

A new recruit

A top trainer recruited a new team member. this time he got it right , the new girl had all the credentials for the job, left to his own first impression and intuition she would have got the job even with out the impressive CV and all the qualifications she gained over the years, she looked very good in the new style Cavallo one size to tight breeches. It was only the wife voice in the background, reminding him that “ we need another person for regular yard duties of grooming sweeping and horse exercising”, that made him consider the CV and inquire about her passed experiences.
This 18 years old girl had 14 years of equine industry experience, 12 of it as a professional, she had a degree in equine science , sport science , applied non common sense science and many more practical work experiences with several top trainers, including 3 hours in the yard of one Carl Hester from Gloucestershire on a day visit from collage.
He took her around the yard , introduced her to the other members of the team two and four legged, went over the daily routine and time table and then handed her a yard broom and said “you can start over there by the first stable”, she gave him a strange look and said “ I am a collage graduate” the head girl that was privy to this induction interrupted and said “I did not know that ,give the broom to me I will teach her how to use it”
