Tim Llewellyn

I have known Tim for a very long time. Rumour has it that we used to feed the ducks together from our prams! Both our families were in the Building Trade and had become great friends over the years. We shared many common interests in the cars and horses and have had so much fun enjoying both Sports. The main reason I changed from Show Jumping to Eventing was because at that time I could Event one weekend and then go with Tim the following weekend to race the cars.  Tim was hugely supportive to me, when I was competing and has been very supportive to both Emily and Sophie, going to watch them competing when he can. Now also Tim and Oliver share a fantastic interest in racing the cars and spend many happy hours rebuilding them when they break!
