Life is hard on the Flemings' ranch in the Alberta foothills where abused or neglected horses find refuge with a kind, hard-working family. Debts abound and the bank is about to foreclose. Can they keep the ranch running?
The past year has brought unexpected change to the Heartland family. While Amy deals with a major upheaval in her life, Lou copes with the reality of being the mayor of Hudson, and Georgie revisits her dream of the Olympics.
Amy must face a difficult truth when her efforts to help a young girl form a connection with her new horse takes an unexpected turn. Meanwhile, Lou faces harsh criticism as mayor, and a cattle drive brings up difficult memories for Jack.
Jack is upset when Tim hires Ty and Caleb to watch over his cattle.
