  • Career Highlights: Fellers began his riding career at 11 years old with a two-year-old Appaloosa he received for his birthday. Little did he know that the pair would become the winner of the West Coast U.S. Grand Prix circuit and Spruce Meadows in Canada. Fellers was a member of his first U.S. team in 1991 at the Pan American Games and has had success ever since. In 2004, he and his horse McGuinness were second in prize money in North America, and McGuinness finished 2005 as the U.S. Grand Prix horse of the year. Fellers will be riding Flexible, who he has been with since 2007, in London. The pair has taken numerous races throughout the past five years. Fellers and Flexible won the Los Angeles National Grand Prix CSI 2* in 2007 and the 2012 FEI World Cup, making them the first American pair to win the event in 25 years. The horse and rider have been throughout a lot in their careers, including when Flexible was one of the USEF’s horses of honor in 2008, both for his remarkable achievement in the ring and his ability to recover from numerous career-threatening injuries. Fellers met and married his wife, Shelley, in 1987 while operating a show-jumping stable in southern California. In 1989, the couple moved to Oregon to train privately for Harry and Mollie Chapman, owners of Flexible.
