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.

Selling a horse

Many years ago I worked for Kurt Blochinger, who specialised in selling dressage horses to the wannabe top riders.  The team consisted of Kurt, me and Ursula.  Now Ursula could be described in a single word, ‘HONEY’.  Most men in her company would keep their hands in their pockets on the pretence of fumbling for the keys and once she opened her mouth only a volcano would have been more eruptive.  She could ride too.  If it was a male client, or the husband of a client, then a sale was always concluded and they left with a horse and a wet dream.  All was well until a client rang within a few hours of purchasing a horse and asked to speak to Ursula.
"What about the f**k you promised?"
To which Ursula replied, "YOU GOT THAT WHEN YOU BOUGHT THE HORSE!"
