Shondaland’s new hit Bridgerton takes place in the Regency era. In order to be true of this time period, many of the characters can be seen on horseback. Two of the main actors, Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, give fans an insider look into their riding lessons.
Bridgerton is an American period drama. Based on Julia Quinn’s novels, this series premiered on Netflix on December 25, 2020. It was an instant hit! Phoebe Dynevor plays Daphne Bridgerton, a young lady who makes her debut into society. Her love interest is Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings, played by Regé-Jean Page. The story has lust, betrayal and plenty of drama.
Throughout the eight episodes, it’s quite common to see horses. Not only do they pull carriages in many scenes, but the characters can frequently be seen galloping across the English countryside. In order to get ready for these scenes, Dynevor and Page took some riding lessons. Follow along on their trip to a riding stable…
It appears that Page has experienced some riding before in Texas. He comments how relaxed it was. He more than likely he rode Western, compared to these English lessons for Bridgerton.
It’s fun to see how actors get prepared for their riding scenes. If you haven’t already, make sure to check out this exciting series!
