Tim Jones

A much loved and never forgotten part of the team, we sadly lost Tim in 2019 and still miss his smiley face every day. We have left his page here so he is always part of the team and never forgotten......

Local lad Tim, from just down the road in Jervaulx, joined us in May 2016 to help out around the yard and ride out.

Tim is an extremely competent work rider and he leads up loads of our horses at the races. He already had plenty of riding experience with his pony Mitch and he now spends most of his spare time riding our retired four time Flat winner Motafarred, or Moto for short, who nowadays is enjoying his life competing in British Eventing BE100 class which is basically a three day event compressed into one day. Zizi joined Tim in 2018 as a scopey but temperamental eventing mare, she soon changed her mind under Tims' influence and they went on to compete at the Badminton Horse Trails Grass Roots Championship in 2019.

2016 was Tim's first season pony racing and competing at Pony Club racedays and his ambition is to take out his licence and become a fully fledged jockey.

Tim enjoys going racing with work and also spending time with his mates. He’s a really nice, hard working lad who loves the friendly atmosphere in the yard, he’s eager to learn from the senior staff and it’s a pleasure to have him around.
