Passionate about inspiring people to develop a positive mind-set, self-belief and confidence, through my coaching and social media platforms.
Olivia Towers Dressage story
Alongside striving to become a successful dressage rider, I stumbled upon another passion. Around 2016 I decided to turn things around after battling with self-doubt and negativity all my life. In successfully doing so, I knew I wanted to help others overcome similar issues. Through social media, Vlogs, live videos, quotes and much more I portray the real life ups and downs of not just the equine world but life in general. My goal is to inspire and motivate people to invest in themselves and in doing so thrive, not just as riders but as people.
Passionate About Inspiring Others
Before I could even walk I was riding, but I would say my passion for Dressage started around the age of 13. From a very young age, I knew what I wanted to do with my life and even though the path hasn’t always been a straightforward one, the vision has never changed.
Aged 16, I left school to work on a professional yard. The knowledge and experience I gained there was priceless, spurring me on to learn more and more. I was privileged to represent Team GB in Juniors and Young Riders, an experience I will never forget.
With the support of my incredible parents, I started working on our yard based in Ledbury around the age of 18. I was lucky enough to train with Charlotte Dujardin for almost 3 years before I met my current trainer David Pincus. David has had and continues to have, a huge impact on my knowledge and understanding of training horses.
Teaching has always been a big part of my job, but I have decided to push it the extra bit more. I am now striving to help people see their full potential, really focusing in on a positive mind-set. I myself used to be a very negative person and, after hitting a low point in 2016, I decided to go and find the self-belief I was lacking. I can hands down say the changes in my whole life, not just my riding, have been dramatic and this is why I have set it as one of my life goals to help people find their self-belief.
Teaching & Training
I have been teaching for six years across different ages, levels, and disciplines up to PSG. I am a certified UKCC level 2 Coach and hold the BHS First Aid qualification. I have also completed my Safeguarding and Protecting Children Course.
I look to help build your confidence and understanding to achieve the horse’s full potential and your goals as a rider.
Lessons are held in our 20×60 indoor school at our yard based in Ledbury, but I also travel to teach.
Prices are available on my website.
I run training clinics from home and different locations around the country. To find a location near you please join the ‘OTD on tour’ group on Facebook. I also run weekend camps from home once a month which includes training on your own horse, overnight stabling and one to one sessions off your horse which give you the great opportunity to talk over any questions in more depth.
We offer stabling for our training programmes when required. Prices are available on my website.
