SPOILERS AHEAD . . .
Season 14 started a year after the sudden passing of Ty Borden. The season was filled with Amy picking up the pieces after losing her spouse and dealing with an emotion that many of us dread – grief. When the season began Amy was no longer working with clients and was being pressured by Tim to make a decision on the unfinished house she was building with Ty. Everyone was adjusting to the new normal of life without Ty.
Jack took Amy out to the fishing cabin where some much-needed healing took place not only for Amy but for Jack as well. Amy got back in the saddle and began working with newcomer Parker – Jade’s step-sister.
As the entire family was dealing with grief, Jack was no exception. During the bi-annual cattle drive, Jack was forced to admit and confront his unresolved anger over losing Ty.
Ty’s mom Lily arrives in town unexpectedly after missing Ty’s funeral, eliciting a not-so-warm welcome from Amy. Amy was not happy with Lily for not being there for Lyndy after losing her father, it felt like she lost her grandma as well. Lily later revealed to Amy the truth behind her absence after Ty’s passing. Lily relapsed after learning of her son’s death and was recently released from rehab.
Season 14 was filled with excitement, twists, and turns as another train derailment resulted in a huge wildfire costing the town lots of money and ruined the rodeo grounds. As Mayor of Hudson, Lou had a tough time winning back the trust in the town after a scathing article was published questioning her management of funds. Tim threw a celebrity softball game to raise money to repair the rodeo grounds. just in time for the rodeo.
Later in the season, we start to see the new herd leader Caz pushing horses out of the herd. Tim produced a solution for a 2-day clinic with workshops led by a reluctant Amy. Leading the workshops led to a heartfelt talk between Amy and Lou. They were able to address the unresolved issues between the two of them and get to the root of the problem to move forward.
There was a lot of healing this season and viewers were able to see that loss and grief are ongoing and not something that is healed overnight. Amy and Jack kept sentimental items that reminded them of Ty. Amy kept Ty’s jacket and Jack fixed up Ty’s old motorcycle. Nearing the end of the season the family began to enjoy life in the midst of mourning.
Relationships ending and beginning was a theme in Season 14. We saw Tim enter a relationship with Jessica while Lou and Mitch take a break from their engagement. In the final episode of Season 14, Amy and Parker help Cooper save his center for horses and troubled children.
