Dr. Cregier is a consulting ethologist, expert witness, and advisor on equine behavior to attorneys, legislators, and government agencies. Clients have included the Farm Animal Welfare Council of Great Britain, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (U.K.), the British Broadcasting Corporation, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Equus magazine Gaithersburg, MD.

Her background in reference library work and historical studies fueled her co-editorship, with the late Ellen B. Wells, of “Notes and Queries,” in the Chronicle of the Horse, Middleburg, VA.

As publisher and editor of The Cruiser Courier, her work contributed substantially to creating interest in the American horsetamer, John Solomon Rarey, and in so-called horsewhispering.



The Animal (Air) Transportation Association awarded Dr. Cregier its Animal Welfare Award at its international conference in Washington, D.C. in 2003.

Dr. Cregier’s early work on applied farm animal ethology gained her recognition by the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She was awarded a fellowship in the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities.
