1 Coming Home
When Amy discovers that a horse named Spartan is being abused, she convinces her mother to rescue the horse and bring him back to Heartland. On the way home a raging storm sends their truck and horse trailer careening off the side of the road, killing her mother. Grandpa Jack helps Amy find the strength to stop blaming herself and begin the process of healing Spartan, and healing her own heart.
2 After the Storm
An unknowing Ashley rides Swallow and is violently thrown off when the horse is spooked by a truck. Mrs. Roach swears she'll never bring her business back to Heartland. And when Spartan refuses to enter his trailer, Amy begins to have serious doubts about her ability to carry on her mother's work. But things start to look up when famous horseman Nick Harwell shows up at Heartland seeking Amy's help with Star, his prize-winning horse.
3 Breaking Free
Amy is totally against holding an open house at Heartland, since she's managed to drum up some high profile clients on her own. Clients like Lisa Stillman, a well-known horse breeder who entrusts Amy with Promise, a valuable horse who refuses to be saddled. But there's no way Lou can cancel, especially since she's secretly invited their father, Tim, to see Amy for the first time in ten years.
4 Taking Chances
Horse breeder Lisa Stillman is so impressed with Amy's work, she sends her nephew, Ben, to live at Heartland. Amy and Mallory can't believe the way he treats his horse, Red. After Red runs away from Heartland, the girls go searching for him. They find the horse near the edge of a river, but when Amy tries to lead Red across, his fear of water sends him into a panic, knocking Amy unconscious.
5 The Best Laid Plans
Lou charges ahead with the video to advertise Heartland, despite the fact nobody is supportive of the idea. After Lou's "big city" director drops out and shooting begins, it's clear the real director is Lou. But her take-charge attitude drives everyone over the edge. The last straw is when Lou insists they shoot Amy gentling a wild pony. The camera spooks the horse and Lou is nearly trampled to death.
6 One Trick Pony
When Lou's boyfriend arrives at Heartland the question on everyone's mind is, how long is he staying? Carl has been offered a lucrative position at a firm in Chicago and he's come to Heartland to convince Lou to go with him.

Meanwhile, Amy and Mallory have discovered Scott is secretly in love with Lou and it turns out all is not right with Lou's job offer.

Lou calls in an eccentric old neighbour who uses traditional remedies to heal horses to help with the delivery.
8 Out of the Darkness
A famous race horse is sent to Heartland to see if it can be rehabilitated. Gallant Prince has been terribly burned and injured in a highly-publicized stable fire. Its physical scars have healed, but the mental ones remain. Lou makes the mistake of talking to a reporter and soon all eyes are on Amy and her "gift."
9 Ghost from the Past
The Fleming's eccentric neighbour, Mrs. Bell, passes away and Amy brings her traumatized Shetland pony, Sugarfoot, to Heartland. Lou used to ride Sugarfoot when she was a child and to everyone's surprise, the pony seems to remember her. When Amy's attempts to heal Sugarfoot fail, it's Lou who succeeds in bonding with the heart-broken pony.
10 Born to Run
Jack gets a troubling glimpse into Ty's violent past. When Jack takes him to help with a mustang roundup, Ty loses his temper and punches a wrangler for mistreating a horse.

I've never imagined these days that I would come across a show that reflects old traditional way of teaching morals in a modernized way of living in the 21st century. It reflects disciplinary acts that are more sensible and can easily understood by children these days and it does not sugar coat the idea that troubles and tough paths in life does happen, something we can all relate to. The show does not give over-the-board-try-too-hard way of portraying reality in a tv show buy it gives just enough to mean it but also inspires the idea behind it. As of Amy's and Ty's relationship, I can relate most definitely to the story personally and watching it can better help me accept the facts of life and be grown about certain things even if we do not like it. To the producers and actors, you have no idea how much of an impact the story line and the movie is playing alongside in reality for many. Thought it was just another show for money when I first watched it as my sister recommended it. I was not very kindled about the idea and felt blah after the first episode on netflix, and thought "okay whatever, keep going", but when I did a couple more, I was hooked and I watched all the available seasons on netflix and I'm so attached that it becomes a happy hour, or maybe 4hrs every day; Something to look forward to at the end of my day. If you ought to be kind enough to do your fans a favor, with all do respect, continue this show and it's something we'd love to share our nieces and nephews also as they grow up. By the way, I'd be visiting a ranch soon, just to get a reality of it. Not because of just the movie but because I love the country life as it can so much relate to an island upbringing. Born and raised in Samoa and we don't typically have much depth intakes in things like this but I thank you for being an eye opener that heartland can not only be modernized but also very traditional! Heartland has a way to one's soul! Please keep it coming! #ILoveHeartland! 😘

I have watched this show form season 1 to 12 over and over again, can't wait for season 13 l kind of think this is going to be the last. I think most of the cast will be moving on to something else. it is only what you would expect. one thing I would like to see is ty and Amy to build a home on the property that Jack gave them.
