Of course you can always go the way "if is not forbidden in the rules - do it" but as far as i know a tower shield are something like a mantlet or pavise (read also the description in the core rule book). Something you hide behind and take shelter against arrows and bolts. But nothing a man on a horse (or a normal fighter on the ground) should (or could) wear in the regual close combat.
And to compare a man on horse (with a war lance) with someone on the ground is always a little bit inba i think...
I promise, I would never use a char riding with a tower shield. And i would never let a player char face a enemy with such a combination.

3.000 ss are not so simply to get. At least if you do not have the "Wealthy" benefit, than it is fair easy.
And of course a heado of house/ landed knight char could get the money by other means i think.
