Mrs Reg is Max’s mother. Mrs. Reg’s husband inherited Pine Hollow when his father died. She helped her husband run the Stables until he passed away.
A former hippie, Mrs. Reg is liberal and open-minded. When a human or animal is sick, she still prefers to seek out homeopathic remedies and naturopathic treatments rather than rely on traditional Western medicine.
The Saddle Club girls aren’t about to talk to adults about their problems but they trust Mrs. Reg. She’s not your regular adult and the girls always feel better after speaking with her. They know she’ll always be there for them and never let them down.
What they don’t know about Elizabeth Regnery is that years ago she was considered a top grade rider. It was only when her son Max showed even greater potential that she put aside her own ambitions to support him.
Briony Behets is a British-born actress who found fame acting in Australian film & television productions during the 1970s.
Her father's work as a civil engineer took him around the world and as a result much of Behets' childhood was spent in Germany, Africa and Sierra Leone before returning to England. At age 17 she was accepted into the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, studying there for two years. After completing the course she travelled to the United States as part of a student exchange project. At age 19 she travelled to Australia to take a regular role in comedy series Birds in the Bush (1972), and decided to stay in the country when production ceased on the series after 13 episodes.
Behets subsequently enjoyed several high-profile television roles in Australia. She starred in Australian classics such as Number 96, The Box, Prisoner, Neighbours and E Street.
She has also acted in television guest starring roles in Australian and US drama series, including Homicide, Matlock Police, Bluey, and Chopper Squad in the 1970s and A Country Practice, The Flying Doctors and Murder She Wrote in the 1980s. Film roles included the co-lead with Judy Morris in The Tresspassers (1976) for which she was nominated for a Best Actress Award, Raw Deal (1977), Outside Looking In (1977), Long Weekend (1978), and Cassandra (1986).
In 1990 she was cast as the lead in the Granada Television soap Families. Into the 2000s she continued acting in Australian television series and miniseries.
Briony was semi-retired when asked to return to Australia from the US to appear in The Saddle Club.
Mrs Reg was a joy to play and this whole shoot might have been one of the nicest acting experiences ever; kids, horses, a great location and a great cast and crew. ‘Mrs Reg’ as she is affectionately known interacts as a mother, teacher and friend to the Saddle Club girls. She is passionate about her business and the treatment of all the animals. She becomes a role model for the kids who is always full of advice and warnings. There is very little that she doesn't know when it comes to horses and children.
The Saddle Club™ series stars three heroines, Stevie, Carole and Lisa, who form The Saddle Club™ at the Pine Hollow Stables. Each character has a distinctly different personality but all share an equal love of horses and a strong loyalty to each other.
