Rich Fellers' riding career began at the age of 11, when he was given a two-year-old Appaloosa for his birthday. The pair quickly grew close with the help of Fellers’ mother and local riding instructors. The short, stocky horse had a talent for jumping, and the pair eventually became winners from the West Coast U.S. Grand Prix circuit to Spruce Meadows in Canada. Fast forward to today: Fellers is among the most decorated riders competing on the West Coast circuit. He currently stands among the top all-time money winners at Spruce Meadows.
Over the years, Fellers has represented the U.S. on multiple occasions. In 1991, he helped the U.S. team earn the Bronze medal at the Pan American Games in Havana, Cuba. In 2007, Fellers attended his first Rolex/FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final in Las Vegas. The following year, he and longtime partner, Flexible, scored an impressive second-place finish in the Final in Gothenburg, Sweden. Fellers and Flexible competed in the Final every year through 2013, highlighted by claiming top honors in the2012 Final in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, the first American pair to win in 25 years . Also in 2012, Fellers competed in his first Olympic Games in London, finishing eighth individually. In 2015, Fellers and Flexible competed in the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final once again in Las Vegas, finishing seventh.
Fellers met and married his wife, Shelley, in 1987, while operating a show jumping stable in Southern California. In 1989, the couple moved north to Oregon to train privately for Harry and Mollie Chapman. The private job and quiet Oregon lifestyle allowed the Fellers’ to start a family. Their son Christopher was born in 1991 and daughter, Savannah, in 1994.
