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.

The adult version

The Adult version   specifically   adjusted  for British Dressage  office staff ( wink wink)
I got a call from   the BBC  ,     OK      ONLY  the local station that broadcast   for Hereford   and Worcester   but it is a start.
The person on the other side of the line asked if I am interested in joining a live  debate.
My reply was   “let me  think it over for one second and I will come back  to you ,  YES  I am   (VERY)  interested”
To myself I thought ,  it is not the Carl and Charlotte  TV  road show,   but   it is a start.
“Who else is going to be on it ?”  I asked
“We are going to have  “   the person on the other side of the line  explained   “One  representative of the Catholic church,  two from  the Islamic  council of    GB , American  Reformed Jewish Rabi   and three people from Jehovah witness congregation    “
“I did not know that any of the above  had much to do with the sport of dressage “ was my instinctive responds.
The person on the other side of the line  replied quickly  “ Sorry  didn’t  I explain  this is not a debate about dressage   - what is dressage  any way ? -  this  is  a  serious   debate   on  the  moral  consequences  of sexual abstention  in  modern society “
My immediate  reaction was conveyed to the person on the other side of the line  “ WHY  ARE YOU INCLUDING ME  IN SUCH A DEBATE    I am an ordinary riding  instructor WHAT THE      F,,,  ,,,,    I    know about    ABSTENTATION     and  that sort  of things   I   am not qualified for  an opinion about that.”
“You are a member of British Dressage  aren’t   you Sir?”
“YESS I AM  “   I  replied  
“We think that you are fully QUALIFIED  for this debate “  said the person on the other side of the line.
