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 Truth

During the Myerscough Premier league , I was seated between two BD list one judges, watching the Mrs P GP test . The test clearly did not go according to plan , the Mrs P plan . The only way to describe the joint performance of horse and rider is that Brexit is a much tidier and harmonious affair from what we have witnessed in the arena during the GP test . “SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TELL HER NOW!! ?” one of the judges asked me . “As her husband or her trainer ?” I inquired . “HUSBAND of course “ she replied . To which I replied “As her Husband it will be anything but the TRUTH”. The second judge joined the conversation “ and as her trainer ?” “Obviously ! nothing but the truth “ was my instinctive response. The first judge continued “and if she was a paying student ?” To which my very instinctive reply was “Any thing ! anything !! BUT the truth “.
