Set against the glorious backdrop of the foothills of Alberta, HEARTLAND continues to tell stories about characters that Canadians from across the country have grown to love and welcome into their homes.

Meanwhile, Amy attempts to find a way to get Spartan to face his extreme fear of the jumping pen - his life depends on it. Lou and Peter’s romantic weekend at the Dude Ranch is interrupted by a surprise visitor… Peter’s ex-wife, Eden. Meanwhile, Mallory goes against Tim’s advice and turns to the internet to find romance for Jack.
