Meet the Staff

The staff at the Fortune Centre of Riding Therapy


The staff at the FCRT are committed to working alongside horses to provide people with education and therapy. Horses know no bounds in their effect on people. The impact of learning around horses has scope for learning in a variety of areas. The FCRT staff have a variety of experience and qualifications.

The multi-disciplinary staff work together across twenty four hours seven days a week to provide a holistic service to match the opportunities of EFET. The ratio of staff to residential FETH Course students is determined by both the needs of the individual student and in relation to requirements of student funding authorities. Other services provided by the FCRT are staffed as appropriate and some of the work is only made possible by the consistent and generous time given by local volunteers.

The staff team is led by the Director of the FCRT and operates in a structure governed by a board of Trustees. The FCRT is also supported by a Patron, President, Vice Presidents, Honorary Promoters and volunteer members of various committees.
