El Fell habita en Inglaterra, en los montes Peninos del oeste y en las montañas de Cumbria en el norte. [...] Son fuertes y enérgicos y, debido a que su tierra de origen es muy montañosa, poseen unos cascos firmes. En la actualidad son populares para el turismo ecuestre, la silla y los enganches, algunos ejemplares se utilizan también para la caza.
