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 Wife

"Senior Trainer" was at his element. He was coaching his wife towards the BD halt only championship (Rising optionable). As usual the technical comments were intermingled with the customary, supposed to be funny, somewhat sarcastic comments, some personal some more personal. After 40 years of riding and living together the Mrs heard it all before and was oblivious to any comment however personal it was, apart from the technical. As with all experts the comments were for the benefit the of spectators as much as for the coached student . After Senior Trainer's well repeated analogy about the Mrs posture in the saddle ( "the one about a monkey up a stick") she mumbled to everybody to hear " I WISHED YOU FOUND A NEW JOKE, I heard this one a million times before" To which Senior Trainer reply was " WOMAN !!!! do you know ????? how difficult it is to find a new joke , It will be much easier to find a NEW WIFE!!!
