Yonathan began riding at the age of 5. At 13, he started riding with horse trainer Ilan Rosenberg, it was then Yonathan was introduced to Reining. Yonathan rode with Ilan until the age of 16 at which time he began training on his own. At 18 he began a three year term of military service. During the first half of his service, he returned home once a month to start two year olds for added income. In the last half of his service Yonathan had the opportunity to manage a large equestrian facility, one of the largest riding schools in Israel with over 200 students and 5 instructors. He regularly took at least thirty to thirty-five youth and non-pro students to surrounding AQHA shows. During the last year of his management, Yonathan won many titles along with producing 14 Israeli champions and co-champions in various disciplines, including Reining.
After his success in Israel, Yonathan decided to move to the United States to further his education in the training of Reiners. He trained under Craig Schmersal for over 6 years gaining as much knowledge as possible about the 2 and 3 year old programs, learning show strategies and gaining experience in aged events.
Yonathan has been training horses for over fifteen years which has led to the great success of “Baruch Reining Horses” which premiered in 2012. Yonathan is determined to be the best he can be. For years he has worked tirelessly, striving to help each horse reach it’s maximum potential. He attributes most of his success to his attention to detail and gives every horse the very best Care and training possible.
