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.

Hat standards

Hat standards
Lady Suckley  and Plump Lady were cooling   down their  horses  during  the Myerscough  premier league  show, they were walking along side each other  deep in conversation totally oblivious  to   the other competitors  searching   for a bit of  vacant arena space  in order to warm up their horses.
Plump Lady was on Bluey   the cob  while Lady suckley  was towering above her on her latest acquisition  the Zonik   look alike  fire snorting black stallion.
As  in an afterthought  Lady Suckley told  Plump Lady  that she has been (Lady Suckley)  selected  to represent  Great Britten  in the new FEI   championship  in which  each member of a  team perform  one  single movement    to be challenged  by members of other teams performing the same movement in turns, she (Lady Suckley ) was selected  to perform the HALT AGAINST THE CLOCK test  .
plump Lady  respond was “WWWHAAAaaa   You  will have to get  a new riding hat”.
“WHY  that? Asked  Lady Suckley  “ my    hat is  fully compliance with  the FEI  standards  and   specifications”.
“Nothing to do with   FEI safety standards  or   specification“  Plump Lady replied    “  I  just  don’t think your head will fit into your current size HAT  any more”.
