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.

Kiss it better

Kiss it better
Junior trainer got hurt .it was one of those “male specific riding injury” , miss timing of the rising trot, JT was just returning from the rise as the horse was arching his back to propel in coming body upwards, it was not totally Juniors fault as he was following the new FEI guide lines and had all his equipment loose and free , from noseband to riders socks there was room for the FEI steward to put his fingers snugly every where he chose, obviously rising with that amount of un used freedom poses its own limitation and Junior Trainer collided with the Albion High Pommel saddle with some force.
The air was blue , the sparks bright and the amount of tears that streamed down JT cheeks could have solved the whole of England water shortage, and the horse was called every name under the sun apart of “good boy”
Junior trainer very gingerly dismounted the horse , both hands clutching his manhood he ambled back to the yard , Lady Lovinia rushed to wards him shouting “poor you poor you can I help, can I do anything” silence and then
Junior trainer smiled and said “well you can kiss it better like mummy used to do when I was young”
“go on be a sport “ he said
“ooh come on it would really help”
Lady Lovinia gave him one of her special aristocratic looks and said “you are more and more like but NOT YET top trainer”
