Let’s take a look at yourself and find out what YOU can do to become the trainer your horse loves!


Hi, I am Liesbeth Jorna and I am the creator of Sport & Horsemanship United.
I am a 4 star dressage instructor with the Dutch Equestrian Federation but more important I am a horsemanship specialist and Licensed Dressage Naturally Instructor in cooperation with Karen Rohlf.

I teach riders how to educate and train their own horses in natural, friendly and healthy way so rider and horse can create results in health and harmony. My students are of all disciplines and all levels, from beginning horse owner to international Grand Prix riders.

My view on training is holistic, combining the art of riding with natural horsemanship and personal leadership skills. I could keep my mission superficial by saying that I want to contribute to making the world a better place for horses and their humans, but on a deeper level … this here below is what really makes me tick:


If we want to create that special connection and dance with our horse that fills us both with happiness we need 3 keys:

The key to the HEART of our horse to find a deep connection and harmony, the key to his MIND so we can help him develop self confidence and we can understand each other, and the key to his BODY to help him develop into a healthy athlete.

Based on my experience as a competition rider, as a dressage judge, my journey into horsemanship, jumping and eventing and – of course – Dressage Naturally, it’s my passion to help you find those 3 keys to the heart, mind and body of your horse. I help you develop your horses into happy, healthy and successful athletes in a logical, fun, healthy and creative way, while taking your riding skills to the next level. I help you to build on your potential and develop yourself into the partner your horse loves.

The training video “Riding Balanced Corners” is about way more than just corners!

The training video I offer in the 2021 Horsemanship Showcase is about one of the most effective foundational exercises that I teach almost all my students: the Corner Game.
Riders of every level, from beginner to Grand Prix, have found the many benefits of this unique exercise to be beyond expectation: balance, focus, straightness, calmness, attention … It’s not just about riding balanced corners but way more than that!

I can support you, even at a “long-distance”

The home base of Sport & Horsemanship United is in the Netherlands. There I do several live programs such as intensive training weeks, training ears and private lessons with a focus on horsemanship, dressage or jumping. For my students abroad I offer multi-day live clinics and I support “long distance” students from all over the world – including students of Karen Rohlf’s Dressage Naturally Virtual Arena – through live online lessons and video coaching.

Special offer for Horsemanship Showcase viewers

The movie “20+ Groundwork exercises for Riding with Lightness”

As an instructor one of my specialties is too really see what foundational pieces are holding you and your horse back from making progress.
Most common is that horses do not really understand your aids or they don’t really know what to do with their body and legs.
Groundwork is a great way to build the partnership, mutual understanding and physical skills that your horse needs to prepare for riding. It is also very effective to fill gaps in your horse’s education (or yours…).
This film will show you more than 20 exercises in various levels of progress with an explanation of what, why and what qualities to look for.
