Culworth Grounds, premium equine facility headed up by Sophie Buckley. The small rural estate is located in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside and provides the perfect base for horses to rest and recuperate. Bespoke and individually tailored programmes, coupled with the highest quality facilities ensures that each and every horse is cared for to the highest standards.
This talented equestrian team is headed up by Sophie Buckley, a keen horsewoman who has spent her life surrounded by and working with horses. Sophie trained in a number of different disciplines within the equestrian industry giving her an all-around knowledge of equestrian care and youngstock production. In her teens, Sophie trained with International Dressage instructor Gisele Holstein and renowned Irish show producer, Frances Cash. Pursuing her dream of working within the racing industry, Sophie developed a keen eye for horses with potential by travelling to bloodstock sales in the UK, US, Ireland and France with Shadwell Racing Manager, Angus Gold and Derrinstown’s Stud Manager, Hubie de Burgh. Sophie’s breeding and youngstock experience now means she is a regular at the Tattersalls sales in Newmarket where she sells her youngstock, that she has bred and produced.
Sophie and her husband bought Culworth Grounds in 2006 with the intent on developing the farm and its equestrian potential. Since then, under their direction, Culworth has grown to accommodate a number of equestrian disciplines, owners and professional riders and is now the base from which Sophie runs her showing and racing operation. It is constantly being upgraded and improved to offer the best facilities. These include a Martin Collins outdoor arena as well as an indoor arena which allows use 365 days a year regardless of weather conditions. The all weather and grass gallop are really nice surfaces for leading the yeadlings up and down in a straight line. The state of the art Monarch horse walker compliment the additional hacking that the farm has to offer.
It was a pleasure to produce this promotional film for Culworth Grounds, working with Sophie Buckley and her team at this beautiful location. It really was the perfect setting to fly our aerial drone, and getting out into the countryside with our off-road tracking vehicle and filming what we love!
