Free Rein launched globally as a 10 x 30 minute live action drama series for Netflix in Spring 2017. A coming-of-age story about an American teenager, Zoe, and her summer of intrigue in the British countryside, Free Rein was shot on location in Cheshire and then Anglesey and was set on a beautiful island off the coast of Britain.
15-year-old Zoe’s life changed forever during her stay at Bright Field Stables when she met the mysterious horse ‘Raven’. Their deep friendship gave her the strength to face certain rites of passage head on whilst exploring new relationships. Zoe’s inspirational journey showed audiences that life is all about falling off – and learning to pick yourself up again. With a thrilling mystery, the complex relationship Zoe developed with Raven gave her the grit and determination to master her riding skills and ultimately discover a passion for horses and a strength to face the rest of life’s challenges.
Starring Jaylen Barron (Good Luck Charlie and Shameless) as Zoe, with Navia Robinson (Being Mary Jane and Raven’s Home) as her sister Rosie, alongside Celine Buckens (War Horse), Kerry Ingram (Game of Thrones) and Natalie Gumede (Coronation Street).
