There aren’t many Canadian shows that grab my attention, however last week while searching Netflix for a new TV Show to watch, I came across Heartland. I had seen it go by on previous searches but always passed it by. Well, I decided to check it out with my 5 year old daughter.
Heartland is a Canadian Television show filmed in High River, Alberta. The series is based on the Heartland books by Lauren Brooke.
The show follows sisters Amy (Amber Marshall) and Lou Fleming (Michelle Morgan), their grandfather Jack Bartlett (Shaun Johnston), and ranch hand, Ty Borden (Graham Wardle), through the ups and downs of life on a horse ranch. Amy and Lou’s mother, Marion, was killed in a car accident, Amy, with the help of her family, continues to keep her dream alive by healing abused and neglected horses on their ranch.
Marion became a Horse Whisperer when the girls father Tim left, she dedicated her life to her family and helping horses. Amy has been labelled the Miracle Girl, for her own ability to get to problem, just by listening to the horses, through movement and sounds.
For the past week we binged watched Heartland or as my daughter calls it Loveland Ranch, we are now caught up to the current season and anxiously awaiting the next episode this Sunday. My hubby watched some of the show with us and actually did enjoy it.
It has been awhile since I have been riding, I now have the urge to hop on a horse and go for a country ride. My daughter wants to move to the Heartland Ranch so she can visit the horses and the actors of the show.
If you have a love for animals, you should definitely check out this show. I have always loved horses but watching this show has brought me to another level of love for horses and those who work with them.
This is not a sponsored post, just my recommendations on a great Canadian TV Show, with some great Canadian talent.
