The British Horse Society Isle of Wight has organised the following events at Allendale Equestrian Centre, Newport Road, Godshill, Isle of Wight, PO38 3LY:
Dates and Events
- 1 July 2017 - 'What Your Vet Would Like You to Know!' with Tim Hawkesworth of Vectis Equine Vets

Tim Hawkesworth BSc (Hons) BVetMed MRCVS, graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in London in 2015. Having always wanted to specialise in horses, as part of his training, he undertook placements at the Newmarket Equine Hospital, Bell Equine Hospital and The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth. Whilst growing up on the island, Tim also worked at both Allendale Equestrian Centre and Brickfields Equestrian Centre. Tim's hobbies include walking, music and paleontology and he also holds a BSc in IT and computing. His spare time is mostly taken up looking after his two horses, Beano and Benny.
Tim is very happy to return to the island to work, so he can spend more time with his girlfriend and their bearded collies and Burmese cats.
BHSAI and Accredited Professional Coach Lynn Mills has many years' experience and has had the privilege of seeing several of her pupils gain success in the competitive field, some later pursuing a career with horses.
