Dr Marthe Kiley-Worthington is an internationally renowned expert in the scientific study of the function and evolution of animal behaviour patterns who has been researching the behaviour, welfare and education of her experimental herd of Arab and part-bred horses at her Drumghigha Stud for many years, and is in the forefront of the multi-disciplinary field of animal cognition and consciousness. Raised in Kenya, Marthe completed her B.Sc. in Scotland, did her first research on wild animals at Makere University, Uganda, a D.Phil. at Sussex on communication in large mammals, and ran a consultancy on the behavioural problems of equines and other animals for thirty years, which included working with zoos and circuses. In the last fifteen years animal psychology has become her main interest. This has led to the completion of a multi-disciplinary M.Phil. in 2000, and the award of the Brenda Ryman research fellowship at Girton College, Cambridge. She is currently setting up a research and education centre in France and is developing methods for training zebra, elephants and buffalo in Africa.
