Felicity George BSc MPhil SEBC PTC
Felicity has ridden and worked with horses for many years, and for more than 20 years has taken a serious interest in horse behaviour, studying a wide range of traditional and ‘alternative’ approaches to dealing with behavioural issues. She also has a solid background in science and worked as a scientific researcher at Edinburgh University for several years before moving on to work for private companies, travelling internationally and working as a consultant for a wide range of businesses.
Felicity stopped doing this kind of work 14 years ago, and finds problem solving for horses and their owners much more interesting and satisfying than her previous career. She also runs courses on equine behaviour, and is author of a chapter of the book ‘Equine Behaviour in Mind: Applying Behavioural Science to the Way We Keep, Work and Care for Horses’.
She is chairperson of the Equine Behaviour Affiliation (EBA), and an EBA accredited behaviourist.
She is also a Certified Horse Behavior Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and a registered accredited animal behaviourist with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council.
Felicity’s approach to dealing with equine behaviour problems is constantly evolving as the science of animal behaviour moves forward, and has been informed by study of therapeutic approaches to behaviour problems in all species, including humans.
