TIM, YOU’RE THE BEST

Horse & Hound - - Letters -

Sir — I, like so many peo­ple, am strug­gling to come to terms with the loss of Tim Stock­dale.

John, my late hus­band, and I first met Tim in the early 1990s when he’d come to Church Farm Stud to teach and help with the work­ing hun­ters. The teach­ing was easy to un­der­stand as well as be­ing fun, and we were for­tu­nate that in 1992, Tim rode Bawn

Boy for us in the work­ing hunter cham­pi­onship at Wem­b­ley.

They qual­i­fied for the evening per­for­mance. How­ever, the fun be­gan when we had to source top hat and tails from other gen­er­ous riders. He looked fan­tas­tic. We legged him up and sent him off into the main arena, Tim look­ing left and right, mak­ing sure he wasn’t the cause of leg pulling from his showjump­ing mates.

This is just one of the great mem­o­ries of one of the nicest peo­ple I have ever met. God bless you Tim, you’re the best. You will be so, so missed. Sue Rawd­ing New­mar­ket, Cambs
