In 2015, Towell qualified for the FEI World Cup™ Finals in Las Vegas for the first time. The next year, Towell continued with consistent results throughout the year and qualified once again for the FEI World Cup™ Finals, this time in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Following the 2016 FEI World Cup Finals in Gothenburg, Towell added to his international success, stealing the show in the Shanghai leg of the Longines Global Champions Tour. Towell dominated a 15-rider jump-off to win the $377,500 CSI5* 1.55m class.
In 2017, Towell returned to Shanghai with Kenny, where they claimed another victory for the Paris Panthers Team on the Global Champions Tour.
Towell continued to accumulate wins internationally in 2017, where he claimed another thrilling victory in the $87,000 Big Ben Challenge at the CSI4*-W Royal Horse Show. At the same show, Towell shared the title of Leading International Rider with countryman Beezie Madden, a two-time Olympic gold medalist! At the Central Park Horse Show, Towell took the top spot in the $40,000 CSX FEI Speed Class and second place in the U.S. Open $216,000 CSI 3* Grand Prix, both aboard Lucifer V.
