She plays Amy Fleming, a young girl who inherited a gift of healing horses from her mother and puts it to use on her family's Heartland ranch.
Heartland is based on the 25-novel series of the same name created by Lauren Brooke. This series began in 2000 with the novel "Coming Home". The series is about a girl named Amy Fleming, who lives on a horse ranch called Heartland in Virginia, where she, family, and friends heal and help abused or mistreated horses. They attempt to help the abused horses by using psychologically based therapies instead of more traditional training methods.
