I began taking English lessons and purchased my first horse, Monty, when I was 13 years old. AM: Pepsi has been with us since he was a weanling, which brings it close to five years.My mom found him online, and decided she wanted her own project, since I had my AQHA Palomino mare, Laney, at the time.AM: When I was four years old, my family took me to a local fair where there was a pony roundabout.
AM: I have always been interested in learning a variety of different training methods.
I feel everyone has different energy they put out to animals, and certain ways of animal communication will work differently depending on the person.
EWM: Were you always interested in a more natural approach to horse care and training, or has the show been influential in that regard?
Did you have to research any particular trainers, methods or equine therapies to help you portray Amy?
When I got the role of Amy on Heartland, I moved to Calgary to be close to the set.
