Born and raised in Israel, Yannay’s passion for horses developed at a young age. He began working at local ranches, starting is career breaking colts for local ranches. As his passion grew, he began working under one of Israel’s well-known roping and cutting trainer Nitzan Peleg. At the same time he also gained his teaching credentials from the Israeli Sport Riding Association. This eventually led to his career training horses for the Israeli law enforcement and security.
With his departure from the military, Yannay was recruited to work with a reining and cutting trainer Christian Mayer in Germany. This is where he became interested in learning deeply about horse development and conditioning for its intended discipline, learning to build proper muscle and body movement.
In love with the sport of reining and training prospective horses and riders for the show ring, Yannay continued to develop his riding skills in condition and body control. In wanting to expand his knowledge, Yannay moved to the United States.
Working under successful reining trainers Bil Norwood and Tanya Jenkins, over the past several years, Yannay has begun training under is own brand Sliders Performance Horses. Staying true to his passion in building successful reining horses with proper development of body and mind, he began developing a nutrition program. This is one example of his dedication to training and building performance horses and non pros creating a competitive team in the show pen.
Having proper riding equipment is essential. It is critical to invest in a saddle made from quality material that fits both the rider and horse. Sterling Reining Saddles have a “pocket seat”. This allows the rider to maintain close contact with their horses back and body, not only to build their horses skill, but improve the rider’s ability as well. Sterling Reining Saddles are safe and well built.
