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 where he was back competing on teams by the summer of 2012.
