The Fell is a versatile, working breed, used both in riding and driving. Originating on the border between England and Scotland, quite probably pre-dating Roman Times. 

They are primarily a working breed with activity, stamina, hardiness and intelligence that enables them to live and thrive in tough conditions out on the Fells.

Early on Fells were used as a packhorse, carrying lead, copper, and iron ore. They were also used in agriculture and transport of goods.

With their sturdy bodies, strong legs, equable disposition and being good fast walkers, they would travel up to 240 miles a week. They were favoured by the Vikings as packhorses as well as for ploughing, riding and pulling sledges.

Todays Fells are just as versatile, being shown in all different disciplines from Combined driving to Western Trail and everything in between.
