Amy is a 15-year-old girl growing up in Hudson, Alberta with a serious love of horses. She discovers that a horse named Spartan is being abused at Mallen's farm and convinces her mother, Marion, to rescue him. A storm on the way home sends their truck and trailer off the road and onto a steep hill, crashing into a tree. When Amy wakes up, she's in the hospital and discovers that her mother died in the accident. Amy's sister Lou comes home from New York City to help. Refusing to put Spartan down, Grandpa Jack brings the horse back to Heartland hoping that Amy can help him. Before Amy can help Spartan, she has to come to terms with what happened to her mom.

When Amy and Lou empty their mother's room, they find a letter dated seven years previous, from their father. Ben Stillman is sent to live at Heartland by his aunt, Lisa, while she's in France. No one likes Ben, as he uses methods like whipping his horse, Red, to show him "who's boss", and he doesn't participate in ranch duties. Ty is especially angry, challenging Amy to prove that Heartland is different than the other stables (like Briar Ridge) that tolerate this treatment of horses. Amy gets knocked off her horse while trying to take Ben's horse across the river on a trail ride and sustains a minor head injury. Ty is offered a job at Briar Ridge even after Amy accidentally tells Ashley that Ty is on probation. When Amy hears that Ty might take the job, she snaps at him.

8 8 "Out of the Darkness" Dean Bennett Heather Conkie January 13, 2008 (2008-01-13) 108
Amy tries to help a champion stallion and his depressed trainer, who were injured in a stable fire. In the process, she confronts her own unresolved feelings about her mother's accident. She is also able to clear the name of the trainer, who had been blamed for the stable fire and consequently lost his job. Meanwhile, Jack grows increasingly attracted to Lisa. She asks Jack to come look at a horse with her, and he agrees, but insists on driving his truck to the sale. Jack declares that it's not a date but it turns into one, especially as they share a picnic lunch when Jack's truck breaks down. Jack and Lisa enjoy themselves, until Dan Hartfield shows up at the sale and introduces himself as Lisa's husband. Jack leaves her behind, feeling foolish, until Lisa shows up later at Heartland, and explains that Dan is actually her ex-husband.

After elderly Mrs. Bell has a heart attack, Amy takes in her Shetland pony Sugarfoot, to whom Lou grows surprisingly attached. Lou reminisces about learning to ride on Sugarfoot when she was young, and singing to him with Mrs. Bell. Ty's old girlfriend, Kerry Anne, from his past group home shows up looking for him, having taken a job in the kitchens at Briar Ridge. She manages to cause her fair share of trouble in the process, ripping off Soraya and stealing from Ashley, as well as creating friction with the Heartland family. Amy initially feels threatened by her, but Ty sends Kerry Anne on her way to BC, knowing that she is bad news.

When Amy invites Tim up to the ranch, Lou tries to impress their estranged father, not wanting to admit to him her fear of horses. This fear stems from having witnessed his accident at the Calgary Stampede years before. Tim also brings Amy a roping horse with a fear of cattle for her to heal. Jack escapes from the family reunion by going on a second date with Lisa. Ty practises his cattle roping skills, but discovers he still has a lot to learn about cows.

A sudden, yet deliberate, barn fire puts Jack in hospital and Heartland in financial straits, just as Lou was preparing to return to her old life in New York. As a result of his injuries, Jack suffers some amnesia surrounding the cause of the fire. As he heals, Jack remembers that Wes was the one who set it, and he is arrested as a result. Looking to expand neighbouring ranch Briar Ridge, Val makes an offer to buy some of Jack's land, but Tim isn't so keen on the idea. Jack remembers a promise he made his grandfather long ago, and decides not to sell any land. The community pulls together to help the Heartland family.

It's time for Amy to compete with Spartan in the Fall Finale, with Ty as her coach. But she has to compete against Ashley and her prize horse Apollo. Mr. Mallen, Spartan's abusive previous owner, arrives to take Spartan "home" after receiving a tip from Val. When Ashley confronts her mother about it, Val explains that Mr. Mallen has every right to take Spartan back. Jack lets Tim in the house during Amy's post-competition party. Lou is thinking about taking the job she was offered in New York, and Scott tells Lou he loves her, fearing he won't have another chance to do so. Lou and Scott finally kiss. Amy and Ty kiss for the first time while talking in the stables. As Ty leaves for Calgary to "help his dad" -- whom he hasn't seen in five years -- he can't bring himself to tell Amy, instead he leaves her a note in the loft.

14 1 "Ghost Horse" TW Peacocke Heather Conkie October 5, 2008 (2008-10-05) 201
Ty has been gone for four months, and things have changed at Heartland. There is a new ranch hand, a cowboy named Caleb O'Dell, who came with his roping horse, Shorty. At the start of the episode, Amy watches as two wild stallions fight for control of a herd, and takes the losing wild stallion back to Heartland to treat his injuries and tame him. Lou has plans to create a "corporate equine retreat" at Heartland, which Jack rejects as being a "dude ranch". She makes an effort to talk him around. At Amy's surprise sweet-sixteen party, Jack gets a call from someone and leaves the party. George Canyon, the country singer, makes a cameo as Mallory's dad Charlie and sings his hit song "Just Like You" at Amy's party. The episode ends with Jack and Ty getting out of the truck, to a less-than-warm welcome from Amy.
15 2 "Letting Go" TW Peacocke Leila Basen and David Preston October 12, 2008 (2008-10-12) 202
After his return, Ty promptly clashes with Caleb, as the latter has stepped into most of Ty's former duties. Caleb begins to emerge as a romantic rival to Ty for Amy, although Ashley is clearly interested in Caleb as well. Having given permission for Lou to establish her corporate equine retreat, Jack balks at tearing down old bunkhouses built by his grandfather, to make way for the new facilities. Lou gets a job as a waitress to prove she has no opportunity to use her skills if Jack won't let anything change at the ranch. Jack agrees to Lou renovating, rather than replacing, the old cabins for her corporate equine retreat. As a birthday present, Tim gives Amy a show jumping horse named Storm, and she is elated to receive such a gift.
16 3 "Gift Horse" Ron Murphy Leila Basen and David Preston October 19, 2008 (2008-10-19) 203
Amy tries to balance school, chores, and training for show jumping. Her father helps to coach her and Ty offers to help with chores and training Spartan, but Amy is struggling. Her grades in Earth Science slip while she tries to keep up with a show circuit that has competitions every weekend. (It should be noted that Earth Sciences is not actually a course offered in Alberta - parts of geological science are included in various other science courses in the province.[3] This is one of a limited number of regional errors in this show.) Amy is forced to choose between her love of healing troubled horses and living up to her father's show jumping expectations. With no way to balance it all, Amy makes the hard decision to quit show jumping and sell Storm. This allows her to focus on her grades, chores, and work with horses. Meanwhile, Lou is searching for dude ranch horses and she is at odds with Tim over which horses to buy. He knows someone with Quarter Horses to sell, but Jack explains that they are hard for beginners to handle effectively. Amy suggests looking at rescue horses, and Scott helps Lou choose gentle, reliable horses for the dude ranch.
17 4 "Dancing in the Dark" Ron Murphy Heather Conkie October 26, 2008 (2008-10-26) 204
Most of the family go away on the spring cattle drive, as Ray Phillips, the owner of Big River Ranch, had just passed away and a herd of cattle was part of his estate. Lou pushes them out the door as fast as possible, as she has planned a romantic weekend at the ranch with Scott. Their plans change because Scott happens to be on call, and the dude ranch's first customers arrive a week early: an odd middle-aged couple who are travel bloggers, and Lou goes out of her way to please them, thinking that their reviews could make or break her new venture. Lucky for Lou, they don't hold a grudge; she backed into their car after having lunch with Marnie at Maggie's, before they got to the ranch. While on the cattle drive, Amy and Ty talk for the first time about his absence and clear the air between them. Ty comes close to telling Amy how he feels, and they kiss. Lisa tells Jack that she loves him, and they kiss too. Tim buys Big River Ranch and the infamous longhorns, and finds himself attracted to Ray's daughter Callie. Ty and Caleb get in a fight and accidentally release a group of cattle, who are easily returned to their pen with everyone's help. Mallory is still trying to convince Jake to stop pursuing her, but ends up dancing with him. Lou and Scott realize that their relationship isn't working due to conflicting schedules. Scott suggests a break, while Lou suggests marriage, leaving them on an unclear footing for the near future.
18 5 "Corporate Cowgirls" Tim Southam Heather Conkie November 2, 2008 (2008-11-02) 205
Lou puts a brave face on lingering insecurities when former coworkers from the high-powered career she gave up in New York become customers at her corporate equine retreat. Caleb bails on leading the trail ride because it would have meant Amy and Ty could have a romantic evening alone at the ranch. Amy helps Lou instead and takes Copper, who is a better trail horse, despite Mallory's protests. When Amy is gone, Mallory does a bit of jumping on Spartan, then takes him on a ride. While checking a log on the trail to make sure it's safe to jump, Mallory doesn't notice Spartan leave. She finds him grazing at the side of the road relatively quickly, but doesn't notice the signs indicating recent pesticide application. Once they return to the ranch, it becomes evident something is wrong, which Ty correctly guesses to be pesticide poisoning. Ty looks into Marion's notebooks, and gets Mallory's help to mix charcoal and water. Caleb and his friend Kit, who Ty met accidentally while she was bathing in the pond early that morning, show up. Ty explains the situation, and they get Spartan to drink all the jugs of charcoal water together. Meanwhile, Lou's friends work out their problems with each other, themselves, and their love lives, on the overnight trip that Lou, Tim, Amy, and Jack took them on. Lou's friend Lauren kisses Tim, who pushes her away, and Lou becomes upset with her friend. Lou admits Scott said no to her proposal because he wasn't sure, and that she doesn't know how they stand now. At the end of the trip, Lou feels bad for the fight that happened among the girls the previous night and tries to apologize, but the girls say it was therapeutic, and they will be sure to spread the word in New York about the Heartland Equestrian Connection.
19 6 "Holding Fast" Tim Southam Susin Nielsen November 9, 2008 (2008-11-09) 206
Out for a ride along the river, Amy comes across an RCMP officer trying to save a young boy from drowning. She tries to help his horse, Venture, who has developed a fear of water. She discovers the connection to the trauma of Constable Rodriguez's brother drowning six years earlier, for which he still feels responsible, and ends up helping both the horse and the officer. Lou goes to a polo match for Nick Harwell's polo team, as he gave her a number of free tickets, and upsets Scott when Nick talks about hiring him and Lou praises his work. Scott and Lou talk about the state of their relationship, and they break up for real. Lisa tries to convince Jack to go to the polo match with her, but he refuses. She even goes to the trouble of getting him a new suit so he won't stand out, but he still refuses. But he shows up just as the match starts and apologizes to Lisa for being so stubborn. Ashley takes Caleb to the polo club with her and shares her new pursuit of barrel racing (which Kit is teaching her) with her mother's friends, much to Val's chagrin. Ty asks Amy out on a date, but she already has plans with Caleb. Mallory tries to get rid of Jake, using lame excuses to avoid seeing him and ignoring his phone calls. Jack facilitates an honest conversation between the two, frustrated with their beating around the bush and hoping to get some peace. They walk off together, with Mallory reiterating that she is not a "buckle bunny".
20 7 "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" Steve DiMarco Leila Basen and David Preston November 16, 2008 (2008-11-16) 207
With the annual Hudson Heritage Rodeo looming, everyone at Heartland gets roped into the action and intrigue of broncs, bulls, beer, beauty queens, and belt buckles. Amy and Caleb compete in team roping and he also competes in bronc riding, earning him the all-around cowboy buckle at the rodeo. Soraya, Lou, Ashley, and Kit compete for the title Queen of the Rodeo. Kit wins, Soraya is runner-up, and Ashley is second runner-up. Ty competes in bull riding when someone who was entered doesn't show up, and Amy becomes upset, concerned for his safety, as bull riding seems to be perceived as the most dangerous event. Amy seems concerned over Ty and Kit's budding friendship. Ashley is noticeably upset at the party that follows the rodeo and is drinking quite heavily, and Amy learns from her that Apollo, Ashley's show jumping horse and the only horse that she had a bond with, has been sold. By the end of the night, Ashley is too intoxicated to take herself home, so Amy drives. She takes her eyes off the road and swerves, then Ashley yanks the wheel and they go off the road. Ty and Kit are headed home in his truck, and they help the girls. The next morning, Ty takes the blame for the accident, as Ashley was drunk and Amy has only a Class 7 license (learner's permit), as she hasn't taken the basic road test to earn her Class 5 Probationary license yet. Ashley goes home with her mother, who is angry over the $3700 in damages to Ashley's BMW.
21 8 "Summer's End" Don McBrearty Heather Conkie November 29, 2008 (2008-11-29) 208
It's the end of summer in Hudson, and the weather is sweltering. While most of the family are awake because of the heat, Brad Borden (Ty's father) comes to Heartland with six horses in a livestock trailer designed for cattle. One of the horses is down on the floor with a bad head wound, and Jack is forced to do the merciful thing, though Amy is desperate to prevent it. The other five horses are badly dehydrated and in rough shape, but able to wait until morning, when Scott can get to Heartland from Red Deer. Amy has a feeling that she knows one of the horses, and after cleaning his face, realizes that it is Ashley's former jumper, Apollo. When Amy calls Ashley, she is distraught thinking that her mother sold Apollo to a meat truck. In fairness, Val thought that the horse dealer she sold to was reputable. Ashley smashes the windows of Val's SUV with a golf club and runs away from home, despite Val's threats to cut her off financially. Ashley spends much of the episode working and living at the dude ranch, and considering dropping out of high school. Ty is upset with his father for leaving him alone in Calgary, resulting in the men Brad owed money to tracking Ty down and beating him up several times. Father and son spend some time talking and they make peace, even talking about taking a trip to the Grand Canyon together. Amy, Ty, Caleb, and Mallory care for the horses, and this heavy episode is lightened by Mallory's efforts to stay cool, standing in front of the open fridge and taking a cool bath with several bags of ice. There's even a lighthearted water fight while the four of them are washing down the horses one evening. Amy and Ty are getting closer to where they left things before Ty went to Calgary. When the rain finally comes and cools off the heat, they go outside and kiss, but Ty breaks it off, worrying he is like his dad and saying he doesn't want to hurt Amy. Once the horses are cared for, Lou deals with the logistics by making a deal with their owner (a horse dealer) to buy the five healthy horses for $2000. However, Brad takes the money and leaves abruptly in the middle of the night, after receiving a call from the men that are still expecting his to return their money. Constable Rodriguez comes to the rescue when it looks like the horses will have to go back to the dealer, and the family keep the horses to use on trail rides for the dude ranch.
22 9 "Showdown!" Sudz Sutherland Leila Basen and David Preston December 7, 2008 (2008-12-07) 209
Amy and Soraya return to school, and Amy makes a bunch of schedules so that Caleb and Ty will do most of the work, and she won't have to fall behind in her studies this year. However, there have been some mysterious cattle rustlers roaming about stealing many ranchers' cows and the ranchers are getting worried. Tim is one such rancher, and he hires both Caleb and Ty to watch his herd. This angers Amy, as she knows they won't have enough time to do most of the regular chores at the ranch as well. When she expresses this anger to Caleb, he kisses her and tells her that she thinks too much. The next day, Ty and Kit are having fun while working on schoolwork in the back of his truck, and they kiss. By this time, they had become close, and she had helped Ty apply to take online courses to complete his high-school diploma. Mallory discovered at the start of the episode that her parents had important news that could only be shared face-to-face. Her father has a gold record, and is going on tour to promote it. Since they can't be around to take care of her, Mallory is to be sent to Blessed Virgin Academy, an all-girls boarding school. There is a touching moment as she leaves the ranch. The tension continues to increase in this episode, as the ranchers become more and more concerned about their cattle. The police try to help track the rustlers, but they work swiftly, observing herds from a helicopter, then cutting fence lines and rounding up the cattle, driving them into a livestock trailer and escaping. Lou feels torn, as she has started seeing Mark Rodriguez, to whom her father is becoming increasingly hostile, feeling that the constable is inept at his job of preventing livestock theft. The episode reaches its climax when Ty and Caleb watch as the cattle rustlers turn up to steal Tim's herd of cattle. Amy rides off in search of the ranch hands when she finds no work completed in the barn, and comes across the same scene, but one of the rustlers causes Spartan to rear, dropping Amy to the ground. Ty and Caleb come to help her, and she manages to escape, but the rustler has a gun and they stop advancing towards the scene of the crime. Jack drives up with Tim in tow, tipped off by Ashley, and try to stop the rustlers, but they are outnumbered. Amy sees this, and comes running towards them, calling, "Dad!" The rustlers turn, guns in hand, and shoot towards her; Tim takes a bullet to protect Amy. The episode ends on a cliffhanger, with no indication of where the bullet got Tim or whether he will survive, and the cattle rustlers drive off with his entire herd (minus the two longhorns).
23 10 "True Enough" Sudz Sutherland Heather Conkie January 4, 2009 (2009-01-04) 210
The episode prolongs the cliffhanger as long as possible, not referring to what happened to Tim, showing an influx of food from friends of the family (which usually corresponds with a funeral) and a conversation between Lou and Jack about Amy, saying that it's good she went on a ride. She is even seen riding past the cemetery where her mom was buried in the first episode. Tim turns out to have been injured in his right shoulder, and he is wearing a sling. Tim becomes a source of tension in the household, constantly ringing a bell and expecting to be served. Amy is feeling guilty for being the cause of his bullet wound (although indirectly), and she heals while caring for another horse. Amy's teacher, Ruth Adams, is trying to sell her father's old chestnut, Boxer. Amy and Ty try to help him settle in while they work on rehoming him, by bringing Hank Adams to visit his horse. While he is there, Ruth shows up, very upset that her father was brought to the ranch, revealing that Hank has Alzheimer's. Despite being fuzzy about who his daughter is, Hank clearly remembers Boxer and even Jack. Jack eventually remembers that Hank was the lead guitarist for his wife, Lyndy, when she was a singer professionally. Jack had brought out an old record of hers to listen to, and they listen to it while talking with the Adams. Hank spontaneously picks up a guitar and starts playing the song in time with the record. In the end, Amy offers to keep Boxer so that Hank can visit him while he is able, and Ruth accepts this offer. While Tim is wearing out his welcome with Jack, Callie Phillips shows up and starts taking care of Tim. It seems they have been seeing each other since the cattle drive earlier in the season, and she stays at Big River whenever she is in town. This is quite a shock to the girls, who had no idea that Tim had a girlfriend. Amy is the least comfortable with it, and is fairly rude to Callie while she stays with them overnight. In the meantime, Lou is still seeing Mark, and enjoying it, even making him a mixed CD of police-related songs (whether by theme or artists' name). However, they were supposed to take a trip to the Banff Springs Hotel and have lunch there, but Mark says he is busy going to a provincial review meeting in Edmonton. This turns out to be a lie when Lou sees him kissing a blonde in Hudson, in his truck. He tries to explain that he didn't think they were exclusive, but Lou dumps him without a second thought. Ty is on a date with Kit, and Caleb tells Amy that Ty gave her up too easily. Caleb then shares a kiss with an enthusiastic Amy. Callie and Tim get in a fight, but get back together, and she takes him back to Big River, and finally out of Jack's hair.
24 11 "Starstruck!" Dean Bennett Leila Basen and David Preston January 11, 2009 (2009-01-11) 211
Hollywood starlet and gossip-rag fodder Mindy Fanshaw arrives at Heartland under the pretext of honing her riding skills, which turn out to be non-existent. Mallory is found hiding in one of the dude ranch cabins, having been aided in her 'escape' from the boarding school by Jake. Mallory collects items Mindy has used around Heartland, planning to sell them on eBay so she can repay Jake for the money he spent helping her. Mindy digs into the Ty/Amy/Caleb 'triangle', lying to all three about what the others had said and attempts to pit the three against each other. She attacks Amy in particular for being unable to choose between Ty and Caleb or express how she feels about either guy. When Mindy ropes Caleb into taking her on a trail ride, she insists on riding an ailing Pegasus, ignoring Amy's warning that the horse should not be used. This results in a calculated photo-op for Mindy with paparazzi tipped off by her agent. The photographers get too close and spook Pegasus, dropping Mindy off his back, but causing stone bruises and a chipped bone for Pegasus. Lou eventually kicks Mindy out for behaving as a spoiled rich girl and disrupting the peace at Heartland, and she drives off into the sunset. She does leave Amy a parting gift, in the form of a very flashy, one of a kind belt, which was for sale at Maggie's for $995. Amy promptly gives this to Soraya, with whom she was fighting over Amy's not sharing that Mindy was taking riding lessons at Heartland.
25 12 "Divorce Horse" Dean Bennett Heather Conkie January 18, 2009 (2009-01-18) 212
Mackenzie Hutton returns to Heartland with a fiancé, Ian, who she met after dumping her real estate agent boyfriend in New York. Mackenzie has changed quite a bit from her last visit to Heartland. She has given up the pretense of allergies to gluten, dairy, sugar, food that is not certified organic, and caffeine. She is also much more relaxed and happy with her easygoing husband-to-be in the picture. She has also taken a page from Lou's book and quit her job to be her own boss, running a little art gallery in the Village. When Mackenzie arrives at Heartland, she is talking about a small wedding (under 50 guests) held outside near the dude ranch, with a BBQ cookout reception. Lisa (with the best of intentions) meddles with Lou's plans for Mackenzie, since she knows the Huttons and their high-society lifestyle. Lisa and Mackenzie's mom convince her that she would be happier with a sit-down reception dinner and a tent and roses and peonies for table settings, rather than what she and Ian had been hoping for. Lisa also meddles in Lou's personal life, giving her email to a friend, who passed it on to another friend's single son. Peter, the young man, emails Lou, but she has to decide if she wants to respond. In the meantime, Amy has been treating another horse for Lisa, an Andalusian beauty named Diva. Lisa claims the horse is cursed, calling her "Diva girl, the divorce horse", as everyone who has owned the horse has become divorced. She is moody and temperamental, and Lisa asks Amy to figure her out, since Diva has been returned three times after being rehomed. With Ty and Caleb's help, Amy determines that Diva just needs to be a horse, and hates to be kept in a stall. Unfortunately, this means that Lisa cannot sell her as a show horse. She ultimately decides to give Diva to Mackenzie, who had taken a real shine to her, and would be able to keep her at her inlaws' ranch in Montana. While Mackenzie and Ian had been fighting during the episode over whether to even get married after their plans were hijacked, they resolve their differences and remember how much they love one another. The episode ends with Mackenzie and Ian saying their vows in the company of the Heartland family, at sunset in front of the dude ranch cabins and overlooking the pond.
26 13 "Seismic Shifts" TW Peacocke Susin Nielsen February 8, 2009 (2009-02-08) 213
Bedford Oil comes to Hudson and begins to conduct oil exploration on Jack's property, using seismic testing and exploratory oil wells. Mallory tells Lou that there is little to be done, as the oil companies can do as they please. Feeling shocked by the injustice of it, Lou mobilizes the community against Bedford. She holds a town hall meeting where she invites local community members, their MLA, and a representative from Bedford Oil, who shows up and turns out to be PW (Peter Walter) Morris, the company owner. Tim shares a contrasting perspective with Lou privately, saying that he would be glad to have a well installed on his property, for the royalties he would be paid. Mallory is reading Wuthering Heights and becomes convinced that Amy and Ty are Catherine and Heathcliff, meant to be together but thwarted by circumstance. Amy is working on desensitizing a horse named Acorn to noise and struggles to make progress with the oil company blasting at the edge of Jack's land. Ashley and Caleb become roommates, as Ashley leaves Briar Ridge again after fighting with her mother. Mallory discovers that the two fishermen staying at the dude ranch are actually working for the oil company, when she is cleaning their cabin and discovers their fishing gear left behind. Lou kicks them out, though they protest that they had paid for several days more. Lou continues to hold a grudge against Lisa and avoid her company, though she continues to instant message with the man that Lisa gave Lou's email to. By the end of the episode, Lisa apologizes to Lou and they have an honest conversation, making up in the process. Lou meets PW in town twice, spilling coffee on his shirt both times. He seems somewhat interested in her, but she shuts him down. Lou agrees to meet "Internet guy" as Mallory has dubbed him, who turns out to be none other than PW. Neither one of them were able to make the connection, though, as both used their first names - Peter and Samantha. Lou lets practical considerations (the fact that Peter is "an oil guy") get in the way of having a relationship (or even a date) with Peter. Nonetheless, they wind up kissing on the street in front of Maggie's. Lou starts to leave, returns to kiss him again, and then says that their attraction cannot go anywhere, ending the episode on a small cliffhanger.
27 14 "Do or Die" TW Peacocke Mark Haroun February 15, 2009 (2009-02-15) 214
Ty's former probation officer, Clint, brings two troubled kids to the ranch, hoping that they can learn something from Ty and the ranch where he sorted out his problems. The two kids, Tara and Badger, seem to be at the far end of the spectrum relative to Ty, starting off their stay by burning an Adirondack chair at the dude ranch and putting peanut butter in the muffin Clint was eating -- knowing he was allergic to peanuts. Tara is a goth, and Badger is a boy who never talks. They clash with most of the family, and especially Mallory. Tara teases her by calling her a cheerleader, Hilary Duff, and similar names that reflect her perception of Mallory as a peppy "nice girl". Ty and Badger fight from the beginning, when he refuses to put out his cigarette and later lets all of the horses in the barn out. Tara follows Ty around a bit, making reference to them being alike, thinking she knows his experiences. Mallory eventually makes peace with Tara by sharing her own story about her parents leaving her at Heartland to go on the road. Tara responds dismissively, but Mallory says she should realize that other people have problems too. After this, Tara comes around. Mallory even persuades her to take a riding lesson, making a deal with Tara that Mallory will try out the goth look and attitude in exchange. Amy takes them back to the dude ranch so that she can watch them and there will be enough room for everyone, then sits outside with Ty by the fire as Mallory and Tara have a pillow fight. Ty confides that he didn't want the other foster kids at Heartland because he doesn't want to be a poster boy for the rehabilitation program. Ty reveals that his mother remarried a man who was horrible to them both. He made a vow to pay him back for the pain he inflicted, and when he did, the neighbours called the cops. At this point, Ty met Clint, who was supposed to deal with the hopeless cases. Amy is happy that Ty finally shared his story, and tells him that she's happy Clint brought him to Heartland.
28 15 "Dark Horse" Dean Bennett Leila Basen and David Preston March 1, 2009 (2009-03-01) 215
When a county by-law threatens to separate elderly Mrs. Bell from her beloved pony Sugarfoot, Lou revives the Hudson Charity Derby to raise money for a legal defense fund. This reawakens an old rivalry between Tim and Jack, who were the reason the derby became defunct many years previously. Both dispute who won, because Tim won by going off-course during the race. Both sign up for this derby to settle their score. Kit drops off her horse Money (short for You're so Money), whom she thought was a chuckwagon horse, to Heartland for rehoming. Scott looks at the horse and determines that he has a tattoo, meaning he was a racehorse. Ty looks up Money's records and discovers that he was a success when racing. Amy helps get Tim's palomino horse in shape for the race, as Tim is still having difficulty riding due to his shoulder. Ty helps Jack train on their "secret weapon" because Jack's horse, Paint, is too old to race in the derby. Tim and Jack are doing well in the race, until Tim falls off his horse and Jack stops to help him. Scott wins the race and Tim and Jack tie for second (although Tim's horse was ahead by a little bit, if you watch closely). Amy and Ty are recruited to be spotters at the halfway point, which doesn't work out, as the walkie talkies that Amy and Lou communicate on are unable to connect properly over such a distance. Ty and Amy start play-fighting and almost kiss. Ashley's mom offers to sponsor Caleb so he can join the professional rodeo circuit and leave Hudson. This episode features some comic relief between Jack and Tim - Tim offers Jack hay, and Jack thinks it will be free. They haggle over price, and Jack plans to take the hay. They disagree later, and he comes back to return the hay. In all, the hay is lifted onto and taken off of the bed of Jack's truck no less than four times.
29 16 "The Ties That Bind" Dean Bennett Penny Gummerson March 8, 2009 (2009-03-08) 216
The episode opens with Amy and Spartan out on a ride as dusk is falling. For no clear reason, Spartan is acting a bit uneasy. This part of the episode is filmed as if through the eyes of someone watching Amy and her horse, always with trees between the scene and the audience. When they return to the barn, Amy also seems uneasy, and decides not to let Ty turn Spartan out with the other horses overnight. That night, Amy tosses and turns, seeing the night her mom died in her dreams, while Wes breaks into the barn and escapes with Spartan. When Amy wakes up in the middle of the night and goes to check on him, she discovers that Spartan is gone. The family speaks to the police to track Spartan, but Ty and Amy also spend the next couple weeks checking horse auctions to see if Spartan turns up. They visit the Highwood Auction, and Ty buys a two-year-old bay gelding named Harley. Amy is angry that he spent the money he'd been saving for a motorcycle on a horse, but he says that he's almost a motorcycle, due to the name. Amy starts to storm out, but Ty stops her when he sees Spartan turn up. Spartan is there and Wes buys him "legally". Amy tries to prove that Spartan is her horse, but she doesn't possess a bill of sale, and current registration papers don't prove it without one. Wes is unable to leave with Spartan right away because Ty slashed his tires to ensure he couldn't leave before they talked to the brand inspector. Ty chases down Wes later, hoping to buy Spartan back, but Wes refuses to sell him for any price. Amy later plans to return and steal Spartan from the auction house, and Ty tries to talk her out of it, saying it's a felony. (This is actually untrue in Alberta, as indictable offences are applied in Canada. This is one of a limited number of regional errors in this show.) In the end, Ty reluctantly agrees to help her that evening. Ty gets caught and taken to jail, where Jack bails him out, but he may still be convicted. Jack and Tim track down Wes and force him to sign a bill of sale, returning Spartan and preventing similar problems for Amy in the future. Jack also talks to Constable Rodriguez, who promises to destroy the file on Ty's theft attempt. Ty instead has to do 200 hours of community service, and Amy is grounded until further notice. Mallory's horse, Copper, is scared of her because of her "goth" look, so she returns to her normal style by the end of the episode. Lou is apprehensive of revealing to her family that she is dating an oil guy, and goes to extreme measures to avoid them seeing her with Peter. Caleb gets his rodeo card, and Val offers him a sponsorship to go on the road and stay away from Ashley. Caleb debates whether to take it, and talks to both Ty and Kit about it. In the end, he decides to go, and does so at the end of the episode.
30 17 "Full Circle" Don McBrearty Penny Gummerson March 15, 2009 (2009-03-15) 217
Spartan refuses to jump for Amy and she is suffering from the trauma of having him stolen, so Amy takes him to Marion's Aboriginal Canadian friend Victor Whitetail who helps people connect with their horses. He helps Amy process her feelings and heal, using traditional Aboriginal methods. Victor was more than friends with Marion after Tim left. Peter books the entire dude ranch in order to spend time with Lou, who continues to keep him a secret from her family. Peter is forced to tell Lou he has an ex-wife when he has to take care of their dog, Max. Lou promises to let him meet her family, now that she knows more about his. Ty breaks Harley while Amy stays at Victor's, but gets into a fight with Kit when she tries to show him her methods. Later, Ty breaks up with Kit, realizing he has feelings for Amy; when she returns, he tells her he can't continue being only friends. Ashley mopes around because Caleb hasn't spoken to her since leaving for the rodeo circuit.
31 18 "Step By Step" Don McBrearty Heather Conkie March 22, 2009 (2009-03-22) 218
Ty tells Jack and Amy that this winter is very hard on the mustangs in the mountains, and Amy wants to go feed them. Jack says it will make them dependent on people. At dinner, Mallory reveals that Ty has earned his high school diploma and later tells Amy that he's at a crossroads, and asks if Amy has any plans. She replies that she's working on it. Her method is revealed when we see Amy talking about sneaking up to the fishing cabin with Ty to feed the horses, which will also give them a great opportunity to talk. Jack comes into the barn to tell them that it's now necessary to feed the horses, and the three of them can go up that weekend. However, Lou has weekend plans and Mallory and Jake have nowhere to stay, so Jack winds up looking after them. This leaves Amy and Ty free to follow through with their plans, in the open. When they arrive, Amy and Ty spread out the hay for the horses, and Ty collapses after thinking he sees Ghost. (This is the second time that Ghost shows up when Ty is in danger.) Ty develops a high fever, but no one else can reach the fishing cabin because the highway is closed. Lou was heading to a spa with Peter along one of the mountain highways, but they were forced to turn back due to the closures. Lou made an attempt to tell Jack about Peter, but Mallory and Jake spilled something in the other room, and Jack took them to Maggie's. When they return, Lou introduces Peter to Jack, who is incredibly unhappy that Lou is dating an oil guy, even calling him the enemy. However, after Amy contacts Jack via the cabin's shortwave radio, Peter organizes snowplows to clear the highway in the morning, and Jack grudgingly accepts him. Amy cares for Ty overnight, and his fever eventually breaks. It turns out that Ghost really was there, not a hallucination of Ty's brought on by illness. Upon seeing Ghost outside, the pair go out to greet him, and Amy begins to talk about what Ty said. She agrees they can't just be friends, admitting that she loves him. Ty finally tells Amy his feelings for her. Meanwhile, Val gets her test results back, and they are negative. Val tells Ashley that she sponsored Caleb, which causes Ashley to become upset with her mom and Caleb. When he returns to his trailer, Ashley kicks him out. Later, Val is driving along, and pulls over to answer her phone and discover that she needs further tests. Jack gives Tim a loan, since Tim was thinking of selling land to Val to be able to afford to continue after losing his herd of cattle, which would turn Val into Jack's neighbour on both sides. Once they return to Heartland, Amy and Ty get cozy on the couch. He makes Amy say she loves him again, and they kiss.

32 1 "Miracle" Steve DiMarco Heather Conkie October 4, 2009 (2009-10-04) 301
When a coach bus and a horse trailer collide on Highway 95, they block the route for Amy's school bus to get to her high school. Ignoring a command to stay on the bus, Amy goes to help Caesar, a grey gelding with Olympic prospects, stuck in a barbed wire fence. Amy calms him down while his trainer, Stuart Forrest, cuts the barbed wire to free him. When Amy turns around, a crowd has gathered to watch, with several individuals filming her. One of these recordings is presented on the news, causing Heartland to become famous overnight. Amy struggles to keep up with the pressure while trying to heal Caesar, who is spooked by loud noises, cars, and horse trailers after the accident. Amy earns the nickname "Miracle Girl", which she likes even less than the comments of "horse whispering" when people talked about Marion's and her gift previously. Ty applied for a vet program, and accepted an offer from Scott to apprentice/intern with him in the meantime. Ty begins to question his decision after his first job with Scott was to help at the scene of the accident, which included the euthanasia of a few severely injured horses. Caleb punches Ty for hurting Kit, saying that he had warned him not to. Jack lets Caleb stay in the loft with Ty, as Caleb is living in his truck, unable to get his trailer back from Ashley. She starts working at Maggie's to afford to live on her own. Amy and Ty make plans to get Ashley and Caleb back together, so Ty doesn't have to listen to his snoring. Lisa comes back from France and asks Jack if he misses her when she is away. Jack explains that he misses her, but there's a lot going on at the ranch to occupy his time. Tim buys a new herd of cows with some of the money that Jack lent him. Jack gets upset, but Lisa tells him that he can't tell Tim how to use the loan. Jack asks Val about her deal with Tim, and she says there isn't one. He also asks her how she's feeling, and she says that her doctor says she is in remission, but "this blood thing's a tricky customer". This seems to imply that Val had one of the blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma) which was treated successfully in the time between seasons. Val hasn't told Ashley, not wanting to worry her, and she thanks Jack for taking her to her appointments, saying he is a true friend.
33 2 "Little Secrets" Steve DiMarco Leila Basen and David Preston October 11, 2009 (2009-10-11) 302
Amy finds herself caught in a family crisis when she tries to help a 10-year-old girl, Taylor Kennedy, and her horse Trooper recover from what appears to be a freak accident. Taylor was in a full-body cast after Trooper started galloping apparently out of the blue, and she fell off. Trooper also lunges at Taylor when they first arrive, and Amy notes that she has only seen this with abused horses. Ty thinks it is unlikely that a young girl would abuse her horse, but Mallory cautions that they shouldn't underestimate Taylor. After Amy has been working with Trooper and Taylor together for a while, getting her to spend time with her horse and then grooming him together, she assesses that the horse is fine, and that perhaps the problem lies with Taylor. Amy also finds out that the Kennedys are getting divorced, and that Taylor will go to any lengths to get them to stay together. Taylor also almost hurts Trooper one night while he's in Heartland's care, advancing on him with a large branch in hand, while Mallory looks on. She also gets on and hits him with a riding crop to make him gallop like he did during the accident. Amy stops them before they reach a cliff, but then Taylor starts running. Amy catches her and reveals that she's pieced together the mystery. When they return to the ranch, Amy takes Kate Kennedy aside and tells her that her daughter needs some professional help (Amy says she can help Trooper, but she can't help Taylor). Amy offers to take care of Trooper while Taylor's problems are sorted out, however long that takes. In the meantime, Heartland continues to be very busy thanks to Amy's reputation as the "Miracle Girl", meaning that Jack is making extra pens behind the barn to deal with more horses, and Lou and Tim are thinking about expansion plans for the dude ranch. Amy is also treating Roxy, a horse that is barn sour (meaning she is reluctant to leave her stall). Ashley and Caleb continue to be at odds, and Amy brings Soraya into her and Ty's plans to get them back together. The two girls talk to Ashley, but she has figured out what they are up to (and why), and asks them to stay out of it. Lou continues to try to keep Amy's schedule manageable, but Tim continues to interfere, promising service to people that Lou says will have to wait.
34 3 "Man's Best Friend" Dean Bennett Heather Conkie October 18, 2009 (2009-10-18) 303
Jack's truck breaks down more and more often, causing Lisa and him to miss a wedding they were supposed to go to. Lisa and the rest of the family try to convince him to upgrade. They persuade him to visit the Chevy dealership, and he comes home with a new grey Silverado, after trading in his old truck for $1000. However, he continues to complain about the truck, its seat settings, its lack of comfort, etc. He becomes upset, and takes the truck up to the fishing cabin. The family can't understand why Jack is so attached to his old truck, but the audience learns through a flashback sequence that Jack's late wife, Amy and Lou's grandmother, Lyndy bought him the 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne 10[4] as an anniversary gift early in their marriage. In the meantime, Amy is trying to help a horse named Duke, whose stable-mate died recently, by trying to get him to bond with Pegasus. Mallory and Jake stop by, looking for Kramer, Jake's black-and-white paint cow pony, who has a habit of escaping from pens by jumping the fences. When they find him, they ask Amy to solve his problem. Amy recognizes that the horse actually jumps fences without provocation, simply because he loves to jump. Amy's solution is for Mallory to take Kramer around a jumping course regularly, to keep his extra energy in check and make him behave for Jake's family. Kramer also helps Amy with Duke, because the two horses become fast friends. She is then able to get Duke to socialize with the other horses and to get over his grief. The end-of-school dance is also coming up fast, and Amy and Ty are supposed to go together. Amy was going to use one of Lou's old dresses, but Lisa gives her a beautiful turquoise gown from Paris. Ty is worried because he doesn't know how to dance, so he takes lessons from Lou (and Peter, who's back from a business trip to Dubai). Amy and Ty head out to their dance, but Ty's truck breaks down. Instead, they wind up dancing in the bed of the truck, and Ty presents Amy with a promise ring. Ashley asks a rich boy from a private school to go with her as a date to the dance to make Caleb jealous. Caleb hitches his trailer to his truck, and tries to pull it away, but he and Ashley wind up laughing about it before she drives off with the other boy. Jack's problems with the new truck are solved when he finds a used truck, much like his old one, but in much better shape. Old Goldie (the old truck) is brought back to the farm as a "lawn ornament" and sits beside another old, dead truck.
35 4 "The Haunting of Hanley Barn" Dean Bennett Mark Haroun October 25, 2009 (2009-10-25) 304
Something is scaring the horses at night in the Hanley Barn and Amy is called in to investigate. At first, Amy thinks it might be the feed, but Mr. Hanley rejects this suggestion as he'd already talked about it with the vet. Amy agrees to come back that night to investigate further, and Ty comes with her at Jack's request. Meanwhile, Badger returns to Heartland, having run away from his foster home to see his birth parents, but they had moved without leaving him any contact information. He talks to Ty about it, saying that he needs somewhere to stay overnight. Ty lets him stay temporarily, and Mallory finds Badger sketching by the lake. Both seem interested in each other, as Badger almost tells Mallory she looks more grown-up than before, and Mallory asks about Tara, who Badger seemed to be dating when they first showed up in Season 2. Clint stops by looking for Badger, and Ty pretends he hasn't seen him, to give Badger some time to cool off before having to return to his foster home. Mallory steals food for Badger, and the story returns to Amy. She and Ty are at Maggie's, and Ty asks why everyone thinks the barn is haunted. Soraya, Amy, Ashley, and Mallory recount the tale: A young man was working at the Hanley place, and fell in love with the farmer's daughter. One night, the barn erupted into flame and all the horses, as well as the young man, died in the fire. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Hanley's parents bought the farm from the previous owners and they built a new barn on top of the original's location. Now it is believed that The Drifter, the young man, haunts the barn, and he is portrayed as wearing a black cloak, with a hook for a hand, and no face under his hood. Just then, Caleb bangs in, wearing a heavy black cloak because the weather's turning. Amy and Ty go to the Hanley place, and spend several hours just playing cards. While they are there, Caleb, Soraya, and Ashley show up to scare them (in which they succeed). Noises come from upstairs, which Amy had noticed earlier in the day. Amy and Ty investigate, despite Mr. Hanley's previous warning that the loft is strictly off-limits. They discover Mallory and Badger upstairs, and tell them to go home. At this point, Mr. Hanley appears and explains that the loft has dry rot, which is why he told Amy not to go upstairs. In the end, Amy discovers that Mr. Hanley's neighbour, Brett, has been spiking the horses' feed with a glycogen loader, meant to give horses energy, which is the reason they are so worked up in the morning. He wants to force Mr. Hanley into foreclosure, so he can buy the land. Once that problem's solved, Ty decides to help Badger by coaching him through how to apologize to Clint, which Badger does. Ty also tells Badger to come back to Heartland if he runs away again, so that he'll be safe. Later, Mallory flips through Badger's sketchpad while he's not around and sees a drawing of her. She asks him about it, and they wind up kissing. Lou is planning on visiting Peter in Denver, Colorado, for a single day while he has a layover on his way back to Dubai. Jack disapproves, and says it's an awful long distance to travel for a single day together. Lou can't understand why he's so easy on Amy and hard on her, but Jack eventually reveals it's because Amy reminds him so much of Marion, and Lou reminds him of himself. He also says that he worries about when she'll leave again, possibly for New York, or worse (in his eyes), Toronto. Mrs. Bell comes over to use the kitchen to make strawberry jam with Lou's help. While she's there, Mrs. Bell reminisces, and tells Mallory, about Thomas Ritter (aka The Drifter), her first boyfriend. She gave him a jar of jam, and he returned the empty jar with a butterfly in it. Towards the end of the episode, Mrs. Bell brings a butterfly in a jar to the grave at the Hanley farm where he was buried, and releases it in his memory.
36 5 "Glory Days" Don McBrearty Leila Basen and David Preston November 1, 2009 (2009-11-01) 305
In the hopes of impressing Ashley, Caleb takes lessons in bulldogging from former rodeo champion Tim, who considers getting back into competition, and refuses to acknowledge that he may no longer have what it takes. Amy helps them with this. Tim pays Jack back for his loan in cows, and Jack relives his glory days as well, working with the cattle herd. He realizes he can't do it alone, and gets Tim's help, for a price. Tim wants a paycheque and grazing fees, meaning the herd of cattle might not be much of a return of the loan. Kit's barrel horse is foaling, and Ty helps Scott check on the mare while waiting for her time to come. They talk, and Kit congratulates him on getting accepted to two pre-vet university programs (at the University of Manitoba, and Grasslands Agricultural College). Kit says she knew he could do it, though he struggled with Grade 12 Algebra. (This is another regional error: she means Math 30 Pure, as Alberta's high school maths are broken down only into Pure (university prep)/Applied (college prep) and Math 31 (calculus), not into algebra, geometry, etc., like some other provinces.) Ty assists Scott with the delivery, which is complicated by the fact that the foal is upside down. Its head and right foreleg get stuck while Scott tries to turn it, and the foal is stillborn. Kit and Ty sort out their lingering break-up issues while Ty comforts Kit, who is visibly upset. After the birth, the mare refuses to leave the dead foal alone, so they try to get her to bond with an orphaned foal, Merlin, instead. It's hard going at first, but Amy comes over to help and rubs the foal with the blanket that was on the dead foal, making him smell like the mare's foal. At that point, the mare accepts Merlin and he's able to nurse, which seems to be a success. Lou invites Peter to manage his business from the Heartland facilities while his office in Calgary undergoes renovation, which soon turns out to be a mistake. Peter also interferes with Lou and Mallory's agreement for Copper, telling Mallory that she has actually completely paid off her share of Copper's ownership, and then some. Caleb repays Val for her sponsorship, and he talks about his reasons for trying bulldogging. He thinks it will be safer, but Tim later tells him that it's even more dangerous than bronc riding, because there are more variables with more animals. Val tells Ashley that Caleb's a good guy, and tells her that the money was repaid. Val asks Ashley to forgive her and give her a second chance and Ashley moves back to Briar Ridge. While she's leaving, she seems to make her peace with Caleb.
37 6 "Growing Pains" Don McBrearty Susin Nielsen November 8, 2009 (2009-11-08) 306
Ty and Amy clash over how best to raise Merlin, the orphaned foal from before. Lou must defuse a potential lawsuit after fending off unwanted advances from an unscrupulous business client. Meanwhile, Val tries to connect with her newly reconciled daughter Ashley. A cougar stalks the Heartland area.
38 7 "The Starting Gate" Grant Harvey David Moses November 15, 2009 (2009-11-15) 307
Ty's mom comes to reconnect with him. When Tim buys a racehorse from Lisa that she has given up on, he puts everything on the line, including Amy, to win big. But Lisa is angry when she finds out that Tim has convinced Amy to work with him after she said she couldn't help Lisa. Amy suggests foul play by Lisa's jockey and makes Lisa even more angry. Jack is stuck in the middle of Lisa and Amy's disagreement.
39 8 "The Fix" Grant Harvey Penny Gummerson November 22, 2009 (2009-11-22) 308
Tim has entered the horse he bought from Lisa in a local race and hires Ty to keep an eye on it at the track. Tim's rivalry with Lisa continues as she has another horse in the race, and Jack is caught in the middle. Ty's stepfather Wade tries to work things out with Lily and creates problems for Ty at the track. Wade puts salt in Tim's horse's hay, causing him to lose the race.
40 9 "Broken Arrow" Ron Murphy Leila Basen and David Preston December 6, 2009 (2009-12-06) 309
Ty is about to spend his last day at Heartland before leaving for vet school, and Amy wants quality time with her boyfriend. But when a wounded horse has Scott flying his plane to British Columbia to tend to the animal, Ty tags along. Caleb plans on getting a pay raise from Jack, who has a different idea, while Val hires Amy to help get Apollo back on the show jumping circuit. Lou struggles to find her maternal instincts when Marnie leaves her to look after Jerry Junior. Lou is also concerned that Jerry Junior might not be the only baby in her immediate future.
41 10 "Eye of the Wolf" Ron Murphy Heather Conkie January 3, 2010 (2010-01-03) 310
The search begins to find Scott and Ty. With Amy feeling helpless back at Heartland, she decides to lead a search on horseback. With Scott near death, Ty must help him survive.

While the boys head off on a fishing trip, the girls are left at Heartland to deal with the havoc caused by a dog, a porcupine, and a herd of escaped cows. Ty is struggling with dreams about the wolf from his recent plane accident. Jack and Tim have "words" because of something Peter says.
43 12 "The Reckoning" TW Peacocke Penny Gummerson January 17, 2010 (2010-01-17) 312
Victor Whitetail visits Heartland, leaving Tim to wonder if Victor was more than just friends with his ex-wife. Ty convinces Kit to give her star barrel horse to Amy to fix, but when Amy brings Kit into the healing process, Kit puts Ty between them. Meanwhile, Lou gets invited to Paris by Peter and is overjoyed until she learns that the trip is not exactly what she envisioned. Peter must change his "big plans". Peter proposes to Lou. Amy has a memorial ceremony for her mom.
44 13 "Quarantine" Grant Harvey Ken Craw January 24, 2010 (2010-01-24) 313
When Kit's horse, Daisy, comes down with strangles while at Heartland, the stables are put under quarantine.
