Heartland's Leading Actress Amber Marshall Joins HHH's White, White West Party to Raise Awareness for the Love of Children and Horses
Wellington, FL - The White, White West Party benefiting Horses Healing Hearts is quickly approaching, and the excitement is only beginning as the guest list continues to grow. Amber Marshall, the star of the Canadian multi-generational television series, Heartland, will join the Horses Healing Hearts guests at the Players Club February 22, 2013. The famed television show has captured the hearts of millions as the characters have introduced North America to the passion and tradition horses have in our lives-the perfect tie between the non-profit organization and the emotional saga.
It was this tie between the children and the horses that brought Amber Marshall to Horses Healing Hearts. Her character, Amy Fleming has a strong connection with horses, a gift she inherited from her mother. She uses horses to understand the emotional turmoil, confusion and experiences in her life-similar to that of the children Horses Healing Hearts helps.
"I think there are so many similarities between not only my character but myself and the passions that we both share. That's why it's so nice when I get to be a part of events like this, because people know my character much better than they know me personally," Marshall elaborated. "I've been in some people's living rooms for six years now so they get a good idea of what my character's like, but I want to be in the public, and I want people to know that that is very similar to who I am as well."
Horses Healing Hearts helps children raised with addictions in the home by working with horses through equine experiential learning. The organization teaches the children self-empowerment, life coping skills, and helps them to build self-confidence while riding and taking care of the horses. The 501(c)3 charitable organization is a unique program. Through the human and horse relationship, the children in the program are taught about responsibility and confidence.

"I feel that horses have such a strong connection with people, and they can do so many wonderful and positive things for troubled youth and for people who have had a harsh past," Marshall explained. The horses are there. They don't care who you are, what your past is like-they just want to know the real you. I think that is something that is very confidence building in young people, and it's nice that there is an organization out there that can bring that to children."
Amber Marshall was born and raised in London, Ontario, and has been the leading actress in the Heartland series since its inception in 2006. Marshall trained as part of The Original Kids Theatre Company in London for four years, and has appeared in numerous film and television productions. She has also been nominated for a Los Angeles based 'Young Artist Award,' for her title character in the Elizabeth Smart Story.
Away from production of Heartland, Marshall has worked at the veterinary clinic near her home. She lives on a small ranch outside of Calgary when she is I production on Heartland. She loves being surrounded by animals on the ranch, including horses, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, turkeys, steers and even a peacock. On or off the set, Marshall keeps horses and her connection to them as a constant in her life.
Marshall concluded, "I think my visit to Florida, and my time at the Horses Healing Hearts event is going to be amazing, and its right up my alley. I have been involved in these type of organizations before. Anything to do with horses, and I'm there. I think there are so many benefits that horses bring to people, and not enough people know about it. The more awareness I can bring to these organizations, and can shed light on ones such as this, its going to be incredible for the industry and for people who don't have any other place to turn."
On February 22, 2013 join Horses Healing Hearts at the Players Club in Wellington, FL, as they kick off the year with their White, White West Party.
