Tim is one of Britain’s best-known and most popular showjumpers. After starting with Mike Saywell in Nottinghamshire, Tim rode as second jockey to Graham Fletcher. He set up on his own in 1990, in a rented yard with just six horses. His success has led to him representing Great Britain on over fifty occasions in Nations Cup Teams, European and World Championships and the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Late 2011 saw Tim sustain a fractured neck as the result of a fall, an injury which he fought back from with determination to be short listed for London in 2012. Since then Tim has competed on more British Teams all over Europe and in the USA and Canada. 2016 saw success in winning the Nations Cup in Gijon, Spain and in that year Tim was short listed again but for Rio this time.
