Horse Podcast: Olivia Towers

About the Podcast

I began following Olivia Towers via her YouTube vlog, and I was happy to learn she also hosted a podcast. I immediately subscribed. She’s a UK dressage rider who is passionate about mindset, competing, fitness, and–of course–dressage!

Her podcast has the same friend-to-friend vibe as her vlog, and her personality and transparency keep listeners coming back for more. If you need riding advice, inspiration, or a mindset reset, look no further.
