Horse therapy for the Human soul


Two Hearts One Language provides equine assisted learning and personal growth opportunities through experiential endeavor for anyone seeking a mentally, physically and emotionally balanced life, using the language of horses.


We are dedicated to helping those looking to improve their emotional and mental health and/or to overcome traumatic experiences including abuse, family issues, violence, substance addiction, depression and grief.


Two Hearts One Language has one core curricula, Equine Facilitated Learning.  This program is an extremely effective approach to making positive impacts on individuals, families, and groups.

Two Hearts One Language is dedicated to the belief that we are responsible for and should be empowered to take charge of the direction of our lives. By learning how our perception and reaction to life events forms the path of our life, we can begin to change patterns of behavior to create a different outcome.  We can learn to embrace who we are and become confident in ourselves and our own value.  We also develop a sense of trust, in ourselves and others; respect for ourselves and others; and a true understanding of our responsibility, both to ourselves and others.

Janie Smith, founder of Two Hearts One Language , has operated a working equine facility in Monroe, North Carolina as a full service boarding and training facility since 1989.  She has been an instructor of natural horsemanship, dressage, jumping, working Western, first time owners’ education, and a fearful riders program.  Over the last two decades, Janie has developed her ability to teach her principals of balanced riding and natural horsemanship by studying under well known leaders in the fields such as John Lyons, Josh Lyons, Dave Seay, Pat Parelli and many others.  She has also completed level one certification with EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association).

Janie has generously shared her horse knowledge and personal experiences in numerous clinics, including the Southern Horse Festival and the Carolina Classic Horse Expo, and collegiate courses that have taught many people how to communicate with and learn from these marvelous animals.  She has been an active member of REINS, SHOE, the North Carolina Horse Council, as well as an invaluable volunteer for numerous equine rescue groups across the state.  In 2001, the University of South Carolina approved her as the instructor for their students wishing to learn horsemanship. In 2009 she made her program home at Rosehill Inn & Stables, a new equestrian facility and full service bed and breakfast and event center.
