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.

New boots

A Dressage  husband  thought  that  the relationship between  his    DD   and himself  needed some cementing , if he  to get into where very few Dressage Husbands  ever get into,   some concrete  steps  must be taken  to   smooth the pass   to the goal.
So far his intentions  were  miss understood  and totally rejected, the only respond he got from DD was “You don’t UNDERSTANND   how stressed I am,  now that  British Dressage changed the competition   structure  even Carl and Charlotte  WILL  ride  in the   HALT ONLY   championship.
Dressage  husband was not a Dressage  husband  for nothing  ,  he was fully qualified and experienced in this  roll, years of experience  taught  him that the only way to calm  a Dressage Diva’s nerves  prior to a major  championship  is  something new, sparkly  and very expensive.  
After days of searching the internet he found the most suitable item , It  was  the most lovely  Dressage boots,  made of the finest Italian leather  , blingly    edged  and sparkly heeled  with gold plated spurs to match.
As  DD was about to leave  the house  for her weekly training  session with Marco de Graber  (the well-known German dressage trainer )  Dressage  Husband gently  said  “Daaarrrlinnng  when you return  I have a surprise  for you , it will make you the happiest woman  in the world.
There was a moment of silence and  she said
                                                                                                                                                                                      “   THANKS      I will MISS  you!!”
