A Family Ranch…A Horse Whisperer…A Fight To Save A Dream…
Heartland is a place like no other; a horse ranch with a special mission of healing abused or neglected horses and finding them new homes.
After the sudden death of their mother – the girls’ lives change forever. Lou reluctantly returns home from her high-powered job in New York to take over the business of the ranch – this is not what she planned for her life; Amy realises she has inherited her mother’s special horse whispering gift and is determined to keep her mother’s dream alive by keeping Heartland as a horse rescue centre – no matter what Lou wants to do; and Jack – well, Jack just wants to keep the two girls from killing each other.
Thrown into this mix is Ty, the hunky new stable boy – doing time at heartland instead of jail; Melanie, the 12-year old kid next door who never goes home – she has a crush on Ty; Scott, the local vet who had a thing for Lou back in high school – maybe he still does; Lillian, the wealthy widow next door who has her eye on Jack – and maybe Heartland?; and most importantly Tim, the girls’ estranged father, who has returned to Hudson and wants to reconnect with his family but doesn’t know how.
