Top showjumper Tim Stockdale dies

Top British showjumper Tim Stockdale has died following a short illness.

The 54-year-old was diagnosed with stomach cancer in October and passed away peacefully at Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton today (Wednesday, 14 November).

He was surrounded by his wife, Laura, and sons, Joseph and Mark.

Tim made his international debut in 1988 and had ridden for Britain at more than 50 Nations Cups and on three senior championship teams.

His first senior championship appearance came at the 2002 World Equestrian Games aboard Fresh Direct Parcival.

He went on to compete at the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the grey mare Fresh Direct Corlato, where the combination finished best of the Brits in 16th. The following year, the pair jumped in front of a home crowd at the 2009 Windsor Europeans.

Tim’s career features many major wins, including the 2002 grand prix at Horse of the Year Show on Fresh Direct Parcival and 2007 Royal Windsor grand prix with Fresh Direct Corlato — as well as victories and numerous placings in other classes at both shows.

He fulfilled a life-long dream by winning the prestigious King George V Gold Cup at Hickstead riding Fresh Direct Kalico Bay in 2010 (pictured, top), which he regarded as the pinnacle of his career.

He made a remarkable comeback after fracturing three vertebrae in his neck in a fall 2011, recovering to compete again at the top level.

Tim was still competing and winning on the international circuit in September this year, prior to his diagnosis.
