This step took her into customer service consultancy, however, in April 2014 she joined Towcester Equine Vets to fulfil a long-held ambition to combine her passion for horses with her love of nursing. Her experience with horses is rooted in the racing and hunting world, however now Jane and her husband own 4 polo ponies and have been members of Rugby Polo Club based at Onley since it started 15 years ago. Away from horses, Jane holds a pilot’s licence, shoots and loves working her gun dogs. Jane will predominantly be based at Onley Equine Vets.
