International showjumper Billy Twomey, based at Springfield Farm, Southwell, England is the latest rider to join the GAIN Equine Nutrition family.
Growing up in Co. Cork, Ireland, Twomey developed a flare for show jumping winning multiple pony titles before successfully moving into horses.
Twomey has had notable successes throughout his career, from representing Ireland at the London 2012 Olympics, competing on 36 Irish Nations Cup teams, recording back to back wins at Liverpool International horse show and also winning many of the world’s top Grand Prix’s naming just a few.
A poignant success came earlier this year when Twomey won the Bolesworth International grand prix with the 15 year old stallion ‘Chat Botte Ed’, owned in partnership with the late Sue Davis.
Twomey, who boasts a strong line of horses including Chat Bode ED, Ace of Hearts Z, Diego Del Caribe and Chef of Flanders Field Z commented on the new partnership, “I am thrilled to be joining the GAIN Equine Nutrition team as an ambassador and to be part of ‘TeamGAIN’ along with many other talented riders. Working with the team at GAIN Equine Nutrition for the past few months has given me great insight in to the quality of the feed that GAIN has to offer and there is an option for every horse in the yard, including the tricky ones.
“It is really important to me that my horses have the best possible diet to compete at the top level. Knowing that I have the nutritional support from the team at GAIN when I need it, gives me great confidence and is very reassuring. The horses love the feed and are thriving. Their coats are coming up shiny and the feed pots are always empty.”
Anne Priestman, National Sales Manager, GAIN Equine Nutrition said: “I am delighted to welcome Billy to the GAIN team and I am looking forward to following his success. I have been working with Billy for the past number of months to provide expert nutritional support to him and his team to ensure the horses are performing to the best of their ability as well as being healthy and looking great. I am confident that the horses will benefit from a consistently nutritious and balanced diet and very much look forward to working more closely with both Billy and his team in the future.”
Twomey joins an exemplary list of successful ‘Team GAIN’ riders across multiple disciplines, which includes Cian O’ Connor, Will Whitaker, Denis Lynch, Anthony Condon, Oliver Townend, Gemma Stevens and Guy Williams.
