Of all the video projects Âme Social has had so far, Hoofbeats is definitely one we’re going to remember for a very long time. Our video competition winner, and a fantastic team to work with, we’re excited to share their story with you! Let’s get into the saddle and relive this fast paced project!

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Hoofbeats is a fantastic charity based on the outskirts of Plymouth built to offer rehabilitation and homes to horses from all backgrounds. Founded by Sharon Vieria, this charity welcomes horses through their gates, to retrain and regrow their strength and confidence again!

Hoofbeats have gone from strength to strength over the last few years. After recently taking to the world of social media, they decided to enter Âme Social’s video competition. They wanted to give their social media pages a boost and raise money for a new tractor. As soon as we read their entry we fell in love with their story, the people behind the company and the brilliant work they were doing. From that point on we had our heart set on working with them!


The Brief

We needed to make a video that showed Hoofbeats in their natural routine to show how the horses lived, trained and the hard work that has gone into rehabilitating them. Hoofbeats main focus was to have a video that would showcase who they are as a charity and to give them footage to help raise money for a new tractor!


The Day

It was a bright and breezy early start to the day as we had an awful lot of filming to get in! The Âme team and Sharon wanted to make sure that we could film as many of the hard working volunteers as possible. Throughout the day, we learned a lot about the horses and the type of work that Hoofbeats do. We even got a bacon sarnie, served at the on site cafe – you really should check it out if you are after a classic fry up!

The best part of the day was definitely when we got some incredible footage of the horses running through the fields. It was actually very entertaining getting them to start running in the first place! Driving alongside in the jeep whilst filming was a memory that will stay with us forever!
