Free x Rein

Free x Rein meets the needs of the modern equestrian.

Lifelong equestrians, Andrea and Dana didn’t want to give up their passion when they graduated college and moved to the city, but they struggled to find chic, equestrian options that could carry them from work straight to the barn. After hearing women lament about having to wear spanx under their riding pants, they knew there must be an alternative, so they created Free x Rein as the solution. Combining the best in high-tech and sustainable fabrics with classic equestrian silhouettes and design, Free x Rein is a line of clothes that is as wearable as it is sophisticated for all aspects of the day.
