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.

Fair Justice

During the recent CDI I had a social chat with a well-known foreign European judge . The two of us had a shared interest in the same DD (Dressage Diva) , I have been her trainer for some time and he just started dating her . Yes some foreign Dressage judges do the opposite sex . Knowing the implications of being involved with a DD , I asked our judge with genuine concern “ How is your relationship with her highness going?” “There is no relationship with ANY body ,and it’s all YOUR FAULT!!” was his reply. “MY ? what have I to do with your relationship ?” I said in a surprised tone voice . He continued “ The other night while we were alone in her house and never mind what we were doing , she kept looking in the mirror, you FEEL all right darling I asked ???. To which she replied “ ACCORDING to my trainer (me) when it comes dressage judges and SCORING it is not what it FEEL LIKE but what it LOOK like and what I am seeing AINT going to score very high anywhere” “Aahhh it’s only fair for all the 5s I got from him over the years “
