Informal Interactions with Jayne Stowell

What are your passions beyond work life? How do you balance work and personal life?

I have four key pillars in my life, I call them my ‘four Hs’: my horses, my hounds, my husband and my home. My home, in the Grantham community in the county of Lincolnshire has enabled me to have seven horses and seven dogs. One comment about my husband, I am really fortunate to have him in my life. He’s my best friend, someone who has always absolutely believed in me and believes that I can do anything I put my mind to. When you have someone who believes so much in you, it gives you a lot of strength and self-belief. Riding my horses and going to events with my competitive horses is my idea of relaxation. Several of my horses are home-bred horses, and they have completely transformed me. I have seven dogs, all again that I’ve bred at home. With my big four-legged family, it is easy to step away from work and balance social as well as professional life. My husband works from home, so he helps look after that four-legged family of ours.
