My lovely mother, Libby, has always fully supported my dreams and helps me strive to achieve them. She has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the care of the horses especially with feeding and any veterinary issues. Mum is also a very good rider and trainer and is well known on the vlogs for her blunt but brilliant comments through my training sessions and tests. This is where her nickname 'The Sass Queen' was born. We have had our ups and downs learning to work together but now I am older we have a great relationship both on the yard and off it.
Abi SouthAbi joined us in 2014 to help on weekends and is a valuable member of Team Towers now filling in at busy times. Abi is extremely dedicated and driven in everything she does. Abi is also a very talented and patient rider, especially dealing with nervous or tricky horses that others have turned their back on. She competes in BSJA with her string of horses and also jumps our horses. It is great to hear her feedback and opinions.
