'Free Rein' follows Zoe, an American teenager from LA and her little sister Rosie, who move to a rural island off the UK coast for the summer with their British mother. Zoe gets attached to a horse. The series revolves around her relationship with the horse, her aspirations to gain a spot on the UK's under 18 equestrian team with a healthy dose of drama between her friends and her.  


In one of her interviews, Jaylen Barron, who plays the protagonist Zoe on the show, shared the following snippet on what we can expect in season 3, "You’ll definitely see way more relationships change, Gaby [Charlotte Jordan] and Zoe’s relationship changes. You’ll have to watch for, 'Is it for the good, or is it for the not?' Pony Squad's still going strong. Zoe and Pin's [Freddy Carter] relationship, I can guarantee you that it is solid and great, and they're such a healthy couple. They're not toxic at all. Honestly, there's a lot of Pony Squad. There’s a lot of adventures we go on."


The series casts Jaylen Barron as Zoe Phillips, who hails from the USA and accompanies her mother to Britain during her summer break. She grows fond of a mysterious horse named Raven. The series has an ensemble of several new actors playing various key roles such as actor Freddy Carter who plays the role of Peter "Pin" Hawthorne, a stable boy, who Zoe eventually gets into a relationship with.


The role of her sister Rose is played by Navia Robinson, who also stars in Raven Symone's spinoff series — Raven's Home. Actress Manpreet Bambra plays the role of Zoe's best friend Jade. Kerry Danielle Ingram, known for her role of Shireen Baratheon on 'Game of Thrones', plays Zoe's other best friend Rebecca "Becky" Sidebottom. Mia played by actress Celine Buckens is initially shown as Zoe's rival, who eventually becomes her friend.
