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.


Lockdown I am very much looking forward for the government to impose a total “lockdown” over the country . Just think of them millions of people being stuck in the confinement of 4 walls , nothing to do but count the number of grains in a 20kg bag of oats – 20452 if you care to know . Knowing that you are not high on anybody’s list when it comes to food and care , there is a queue for everything and you are the last one in it . The total loneliness and isolation of the long distance runner while staying in one’s own bed . THE compulsory “SAFE distance” from other members of the family e.g.; spouse . So what’s new about all this? we “Dressage Husbands” have been experiencing this for years .
