Interested in equine behaviour? I’m now accepting applications for a Society of Equine Behaviour Consultants (SEBC) accredited training course, based at Stirling University Business Centre, starting in October 2018, running until September 2019.
Ideal for those want to fit in with work, with weekend attendance once a month at the course and ‘homework’ in between.
Suitable for anyone who is involved with horses – from interested horse owners to those already working with horses - for example some past students have been riding instructors, grooms or vets.
Learning more about equine behaviour benefits us and our horses in so many ways. It helps us to help horses more, train them better, and keeps everyone safer and happier.
Some students will choose to go on to sit the professional SEBC exam, others may do the course just for interest or to enhance their current work with horses.
Comments from past students are probably more useful than anything I can say, so here are a few:
"I've been involved in every single aspect of horses for almost 20 years, worked with horses in 3 different counties. English, western, competitive and leisure and I thought I had the understanding I needed to progress my equestrian professional development. Coming on this course has realised how much I have been missing! Joining those missing dots has helped clarify and resolve training issues, and identify tensions that I hadn't previously seen. Overall it's been invaluable."

"This is one of those courses which has the ability to change your life; and the lives of the horses around you.
Each module is like a jigsaw puzzle which creates a full picture for each topic. Add each module together and what you have at the end is a truly insightful picture…knowledge, wisdom, empathy and a totally new way of being with your horse.
Felicity is definitely a teacher ‘who can’. She has made the course unique and challenges your ethics and beliefs in such a way that is refreshing and empowering. Felicity is a constant source of advice, support and encouragement!
Then you go home and put theory into practice….the rewards are massive because you get true and honest feedback from the most important participant. Your horse(s)!
So sign up today….you won’t regret it!"
"Felicity George is one of those rare teachers that make you want to gallop out of the classroom and straight into your horses paddock to put theory into practice. I liken her to Julia Roberts’ character in the film Mona Lisa Smile: someone who wants to make a difference, someone who isn’t afraid to be vulnerable, someone with heart, but most importantly someone who wants to help people be the best that they can be. Now more than ever, I want to use the skills that I have acquired on this equine behaviour course to help horses live a more comfortable and peaceful life. This is a course that every horse owner should enrol on."

"This course has taught me so much about how horses interact with each other and why, including with ourselves. They try so hard to communicate with us but on many occasions we don't understand. I feel I am now in a better position to listen to them when they are trying to tell us they are in pain or a nervous. Understanding these signs and knowing how to deal with them is the key to happy, healthy horses and humans."
