Gred­ley and Wyse to tie the knot

Horse & Hound - - Show Jumping Life -

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to showjumper-turned-pointto-point jockey Tim Gred­ley, who popped the ques­tion to his girl­friend, Sky Sports pre­sen­ter Rachel Wyse (left) — and, for­tu­nately, she said yes. Tim,

32, met Rachel, who used to be a showjumper, over a decade ago, but they have only been dat­ing for the past 18 months. Tim con­fesses to be­ing “not the most ro­man­tic” per­son, but ex­celled him­self with a beau­ti­fully ex­e­cuted pro­posal.

“I’d in­vited about 40 of our friends to Lon­don in the evening. I was rid­ing in a point-to-point in the af­ter­noon and half­way round I thought, ‘I’d bet­ter not fall off ’,” Tim told H&H. “Luck­ily, I fin­ished se­cond.

Then, that evening, we walked over Bat­tersea Bridge, which is beau­ti­ful with all the lights, and I got down on one knee, propos­ing as ro­man­ti­cally but as quickly as pos­si­ble. And she said yes.”

Ac­cord­ing to Tim, his new fi­ancée was then busy tex­ting her friends with the news, com­pletely un­aware that they were wait­ing to sur­prise her at the bar to which they were head­ing.

“They’d come all the way from York, from Ire­land, ev­ery­one made a real ef­fort,” says Tim. “I think she was quite im­pressed.”
