Wish to know extra? Then carry on studying this recap of Heartland season 16 episode 8.

Enthusiasm and coronary heart

The episode started with Amy, Lyndy, Tim, and Caleb watching a barrel racing occasion on the rodeo grounds when Lyndy expressed curiosity in turning into a barrel racer. So, Caleb and Amy took Lyndy to fulfill Sherri Wild, a legendary barrel racer who now runs her personal barrel racing college, in hopes that Lyndy may take one among Sherri’s newbie courses. Nevertheless, that’s when Sherri instructed the trio that she’s promoting her college.

That acquired Caleb as a result of he thought that purchasing Sherri’s college can be a good way to increase Tim’s rodeo college. But, Sherri assumed that since Caleb and Tim are hard-core cowboys they take a look at barrel racing as a lesser rodeo occasion and due to this fact didn’t even need to think about Tim and Caleb as potential consumers.

However that didn’t cease Caleb. He figured that he may show to Sherri that he’s critical about taking up her barrel racing college by studying to barrel race himself. And to do this Caleb requested Amy to show him how you can do it.

So, now Amy had two newbies to show – her daughter Lyndy and Caleb.

The subsequent day their work started. Caleb picked up the fundamentals rapidly, nonetheless, he wasn’t fairly a pure when it got here to barrel racing. Subsequently, when it got here time to race Sherri for the varsity, even with the 5-second lead Sherri noticed Caleb, he misplaced.

Fortunately, earlier than their little race, Sherri noticed how good Tim was with Lyndy. Couple that with Caleb’s barrel racing efforts and Sherri determined to promote Caleb and Tim the varsity in spite of everything.

Which means that Tim and Caleb can be increasing their enterprise and I’m excited to see how that works out for them.

The Fleming gene

As I discussed earlier than, Caleb wasn’t the one one who was studying to barrel race on Heartland season 16 episode 8. Lyndy was bitten by the barrel racing bug as effectively.

But, educating Lyndy to barrel race wasn’t fairly going as easily as Amy hoped it might.

The educating course of began out effectively, with Amy taking it gradual and educating Lyndy the fundamentals on Harley in one of many pens on the ranch. However when Tim noticed Lyndy practising on Harley, he wasn’t completely satisfied.

Harley wasn’t a barrel horse and Tim wished Lyndy to have the very best of the very best as a result of, in his thoughts, if Lyndy has even a smidge of the Fleming rodeo genes, she’s going to select up barrel racing rapidly and Harley’s going to carry her again from getting good rapidly.

So, Tim went out and acquired Lyndy a brand new horse – Willow.

Willow was once a barrel-racing horse however now that he’s retired Tim figured that Willow can be the right starter horse for Lyndy.

Amy, after all, wasn’t satisfied from the get-go. In spite of everything, Lyndy had her first barrel racing lesson simply that morning. However Tim insisted that Lyndy attempt Willow out. Amy tried stalling for so long as she may below the disguise of creating positive that Willow is protected for Lyndy to journey, nonetheless, Tim acquired impatient and satisfied Amy to let Lyndy have her activate Willow.

And it went terribly.

Willow rapidly went from a gradual trot to a full-on gallop and it scared Lyndy a lot that she didn’t need to barrel race anymore.

Tim tried convincing Amy to make Lyndy get proper again up on the horse. However Amy knew what’s finest for her daughter and instructed Tim to take Willow again.

Fortuitously, later that night Amy and Tim had an sincere dialog about what occurred and the 2 had been capable of finish the day on a great notice.

Tim: “I do know, went a bit of overboard with the horse. I used to be simply attempting to point out an curiosity in Lyndy’s ardour. Is it dangerous?”
Amy: “It’s simply the best way you present it.”
Tim: “What do you imply?”
Amy: “Do you bear in mind whenever you purchased me that fancy new leaping horse and all I actually wished to do was have enjoyable at exhibits with Spartan?”
Tim: “Yeah. I get too invested.”
Amy: “Yeah, you do. And I don’t need Lyndy to need to cope with the identical sort of stress that I needed to cope with.”
Tim: “Was it that dangerous?”
Amy: “It’s not about being dangerous or good, it’s about being an excessive amount of typically.”
Tim: “Ought to I again off?”
Amy: “No, I need you to be concerned. I do. However simply attempt to not be so…”
Tim: “So overbearing”
Amy: “Sure. Look, Lyndy is new at this, and may we not simply take pleasure in that?”

So, the subsequent day Tim apologized to Lyndy about shopping for her a horse that’s too quick for Lyndy and took her across the area on Caleb’s horse to resume her curiosity in racing, staying by her facet the entire time.

And the episode ended with Lyndy getting again within the saddle with Amy and Logan by her facet and the remainder of the household cheering her on from the sidelines.

Can we anticipate to see Lyndy develop right into a critical barrel racer sooner or later? I imply she is a Fleming so it’s very seemingly. And I wouldn’t thoughts seeing Lyndy compete in rodeos sooner or later.


This newest episode was a giant one for Logan as effectively as a result of his dad, Greg, was launched on parole and now Logan had some huge choices to make about his future.

Early within the episode, we noticed Logan’s dad shock his son by displaying up on the ranch out of the blue. Apparently, Greg’s parole listening to had been yesterday and he determined to not inform Logan about it in order to not get Logan’s hopes up. Nevertheless, now that Greg was a free man, his first order of enterprise was to see his son.

That, after all, caught Logan unexpectedly. And he appeared to not know what to do or how you can act round his father.

At Jack’s invitation, Logan and Greg joined the household for dinner and later the household even supplied Greg and Logan to remain at one of many Dude Ranch cabins for a couple of nights. That’s when Greg dropped his subsequent shock on Logan – Greg had jobs lined up for him and Logan again dwelling in Nova Scotia.

Very like Greg’s arrival, that caught Logan unexpectedly. Particularly, since within the final 12 months or so Logan has made a great life for himself in Hudson. So, the subsequent morning Logan talked to his dad about eager to say in Hudson.

Logan: “I’ve moved round so much, foster dwelling to foster dwelling. Now I wouldn’t thoughts staying put for some time.”
Greg: “Oh, yeah. That’s why we’re shifting to the east coast, so we will begin a brand new life.”
Logan: “I have already got a life, right here, working with the horses, with Amy. I’m studying a lot.”
Greg: “Wait, You don’t wanna go?”
Logan: “I’m torn, dad. I wanna be with you however this place appears like dwelling.”

That shocked Greg a bit of, so he began speaking about how he imagined his life together with his son as soon as he made parole in Nova Scotia. However realizing his mistake later he apologized to Logan for being egocentric and instructed his son that neither of them goes anyplace – Greg’s going to search for work round Hudson so he can keep close to his son.

But, simply because it appeared like issues had been falling into place for Logan, he noticed his dad speaking to one among his outdated buddies the subsequent morning, the identical man who’s at fault for Greg touchdown in jail. So, Logan felt like he had no different alternative however to agree to maneuver to Nova Scotia together with his dad.

He even instructed Amy about his determination who understandably was not pleased with it however couldn’t actually do something about it because it was Logan’s alternative.

However simply earlier than Caleb and Sherry’s race Tim had a chat with Greg and fortunately, that appeared to make Greg understand that perhaps each of them shifting to Nova Scotia wasn’t the proper transfer.

Tim: “Your son’s a pure.”
Greg: “I can see that.”
Tim: “My daughter can see it, too. And she or he’s often called the miracle lady ’reason for her connection to horses.”
Greg: “Superb what they develop up into. Particularly whenever you haven’t been round to see it occur.”
Tim: “I do know what you imply. I missed quite a lot of good years with my daughters. After which I made the identical mistake with my son.”
Greg: “So, you’re again in his life now?”
Tim: “Nonetheless in restore mode. Attempting to be affected person. Give him his area. let him work it out on his personal phrases.”

So, the subsequent day Greg instructed Amy that Logan isn’t shifting in spite of everything. Logan’s going to go as much as Nova Scotia for per week or so to assist Greg get settled there however then can be again to Hudson to proceed his work with Amy and on the Youth Heart.

Seems like issues are lastly trying up for Logan and I can’t wait to see what’s in retailer for him for the remainder of the season.

I’ve gotta make some modifications

Heartland season 16 episode 8 wasn’t so nice for Lisa both as a result of on this episode she was experiencing some unexpected issues along with her enterprise.

Firstly of the episode, we noticed Lisa get out of the automotive all upset. Jack, after all, rushed to his spouse’s facet and that’s when Lisa instructed him what has occurred.

Platinum Bow has gotten critically damage. Apparently, when Lisa and her staff went to get him for coaching yesterday, Platinum Bow couldn’t put any weight on his leg. And Lisa’s vet didn’t know what’s up both – it may very well be numerous issues together with a fractured bone or a torn ligament which might imply the tip of the horse’s racing profession.

Lisa was critically distraught concerning the risk that Platinum Bow may not be capable of race anymore. And it didn’t assist that her buyers had been hounding her for updates which confused Lisa out much more.

In the long run, it ended up being a stone bruise which brought about an abscess within the horse’s hoof. This meant that it gained’t be lengthy earlier than Platinum Bow is again on the observe maintaining Lisa’s buyers completely satisfied.

And one good factor got here out of this complete cope with Platinum Bow as effectively – it appeared to make Lisa consider what’s vital to her.

Since she’s away a lot, Lisa misses quite a lot of vital moments along with her household. So, on the finish of the episode, after all of the stress that this example with the horse and her buyers brought about her, Lisa instructed Jack that she needs to make some modifications relating to her enterprise.

What these modifications will seem like? I’m unsure however I hope it’ll imply that Lisa is dwelling extra spending her time along with her husband as a substitute of stressing about her enterprise.

A giant alternative

On high of going over the books to see if the rodeo college enlargement can be a great transfer and going overboard relating to Lyndy studying to barrel race, on this episode Tim additionally needed to be a supportive husband as a result of Jessica wanted it greater than ever.

Now that the 2 had been again from New York, Jessica needed to begin determining what her subsequent steps relating to her images are. As a result of, as we noticed in episode 1606, her artwork present was a bust, due to this fact she actually had to decide on whether or not to proceed along with her ardour regardless of what critics say or to discover a new profession.

And at the beginning of the episode, it appeared like she may select choice two since she was serving to Lou out by stepping up because the Dude Ranch supervisor and even pondering of pitching Lou a couple of concepts about how they might ramp up the advertising for the Duder Ranch.

However then Ezra known as her and supplied a brand new images gig- to take photographs for an promoting marketing campaign for a giant designer, Grayson Bolt. 

After the frustration in New York, Jessica’s first intuition was to show it down. And even after Tim inspired Jessica to take this huge alternative, she was nonetheless not taken with submitting her work to the designer.

So, Tim determined to take issues into his personal palms and put collectively a portfolio of Jessica’s finest pictures to remind her of how good she is and to try to persuade her to check out for the images job Ezra supplied.

At first, Jessica wouldn’t even take a look at the pictures Tim printed. However the subsequent morning curiosity acquired the higher of her and she or he did take a peak which rapidly reminded her why she wished to pursue images as her profession.

And after she admitted to Tim that this chance feels similar to New York – Ezra getting one other one among his associates to validate Jessicas work – and Tim satisfied her that this may be a legit alternative to showcase her expertise, Jessica reluctantly agreed to submit her work to the designer.

All the hassle on Tim’s half ended up paying off as a result of on the finish of the episode we noticed Jessica get the Grayson Bolt advert marketing campaign since, apparently, Jessica’s work is simply what the designer was in search of.

And based mostly on the synopsis for the subsequent episode (learn it on the finish of this text), we are going to see how this chance performs out within the subsequent episode. Keep tuned!

Lies and apologies

Lastly, Heartland season 16 episode 8 additionally noticed a continuation of the storyline of Katie eager to get her ears pierced that we noticed in episode 1607.

All all through this season, and even within the earlier season as effectively,  the connection between Katie and Lou has been rocky. And that continued on this episode.

To start with portion of the episode, we noticed Katie present Lisa the earrings she has picked out and ask Lou in the event that they’re nonetheless going to get Katie’s ears pierced very first thing tomorrow. Lou being the workaholic that she is claimed sure however it was actually onerous to inform if she knew what she was agreeing to once more as a result of Lou was so engrossed in her cellphone.

So, the subsequent morning got here and Katie was able to go solely to get blown off by Lou who had a mayoral assembly to attend. Lou, after all, promised to take Katie as quickly as she’s executed with the assembly however it ran lengthy and Lou known as to reschedule. Once more.

So, Katie, being the rebellious teenager that she is, tricked Lisa into taking her to city telling Lisa that Lou had requested Katie to select up a shift at Maggie’s, and acquired her ears pierced anyway.

The subsequent morning Katie got here downstairs in a beanie which appeared odd to Lou. And when Lou requested Katie to take it off so Katie doesn’t get a warmth stroke (it’s summer season in spite of everything), it revealed Katie’s newly pierced ears.

That’s when Lisa realized the actual purpose Katie requested her to take her to Hudson. So, Lou known as Katie outdoors to present her daughter a great scolding.

Lou couldn’t imagine that Katie lied to her. Nevertheless, Katie had a great counter-argument, too – Lou did bale on their plans yesterday. And that rapidly spiraled into Katie accusing Lou of paying extra consideration to Georgie than her and never being there for Katie.

Katie did have some extent, although, as a result of currently, Lou has been both working, spending time with Peter in Vancouver, or in Florida with Georgie. And Lou appeared to understand that, too, as a result of later Lou apologized to Katie for not making time for her daughter.

The 2 hugged it out and hopefully, shifting ahead, Lou will make an effort to spend extra time with Katie. As a result of actually all of the stunts Katie has pulled this season from going river rafting with Logan to now getting her ears pierced screams like she simply needs her mother to pay her extra consideration.

Final ideas on Heartland season 16 episode 8

Though there was no direct storyline when it got here to Amy and Finn on this episode since within the final episode we noticed Finn depart for Kindersley for an prolonged time frame, we did have a bit of little bit of a sign of the place issues are heading.

After Jessica introduced that she acquired the images job, she instructed everybody that the image of Amy and Finn was the one which bought the designer on hiring Jessica for the gig.

So, Amy took one other take a look at that photograph of Finn and her and determined to textual content Finn to see if he made it dwelling safely. And Finn replied immediately, saying that he made it to city protected and thanking Amy for checking in.

Does this imply that Amy is prepared to take an opportunity on a long-distance relationship?

I don’t know however the subsequent episode does promise an argument between Amy and Jack over Finn so appears like one thing remains to be happening between Finn and Amy.

And talking of romances, this episode appeared to substantiate a bit of that the boy Katie has a crush on may, certainly, be Logan.

Through the episode, we noticed Katie bake muffins with Lyndy and produce them to the Dude Ranch for Logan and his dad to take pleasure in. In addition to blushing after Logan complimented her on getting her ears pierced.

I do know that some persons are cautious of potential romance between the 2 due to the age distinction however nothing’s confirmed. And even when the 2 find yourself simply being good associates, I’m okay with it as a result of I actually just like the pleasant, supportive relationship that’s creating between the 2 teenagers.

Promo for Heartland season 16 episode 9

Whereas I don’t have a promo for the subsequent episode simply but (I’ll replace this text as quickly because it’s out), I do have an outline for episode 1609.
