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.

Wining Tactics
While I was watching the Grand Prix test at the Hickstead CDI ,I had an urgent call of nature to respond to.
The public loos were on the other side of the show ground and there was a mile long queue in front of them.
The judges ONLY designated loos were only a skip away behind the arena . As I often toyed with the idea of taking up judging it was a good introduction for the perks available ONLY to this special group of people.
Just as I reached the little green cubical the door opened abruptly from the inside and facing me red faced was one of the Swedish competitors with both HER hands trying to pull up breeches and panties from ankle level . I could not avoid noticing a healthy per of thighs and muttered to myself “IT IS A LUCKY MAN THAT CAN GET BETWEEN THESE TWO”
The nervous girl proceeded to explain that the cubicle is so tight and narrow that there is no room in side for the shuffle and wriggle required for getting back into a per of breeches two sizes smaller than the wearer body portions.
Gentlemanly (as I am) I assured the breeches less Swedish competitor that there is no need to feel nervous or embarrassed as I am here to watch the Grand Prix dressage and nothing else .
She looked me straight in the eyes and said “ thanks I THOUGHT YOU WERE A DRESSAGE JUDGE”
