Tack room item you cannot live without:
I don’t have only one favorite. Everything works together to make every ride comfortable for both horse and rider.
Favorite schooling exercise to use with your horses:
The figure eight. I think you can educate your horse in the flat extremely well if you master the figure eight.
Daniel was born on March 15, 1990 in Medellin, Colombia. His father, Samuel, is an entrepreneur, and his mother, Orly, a psychologist and social worker. They set a standard of high education and honesty that both their sons, Daniel and Steven, aspire to live out in their daily lives.
Inspired by his older cousins who loved and showed horses, Daniel started riding at age 3. He showed a passion towards horses and it became evident early on that this wasn’t going to be just a hobby but a lifestyle for Daniel. In his early years Daniel competed in the United States, Colombia and Germany. By the age of 14, Daniel won the FEI Children’s Show Jumping Finals in Simi Valley, California aboard Lorin. In 2007, he moved permanently to Wellington, Florida, where he and his cousins, Marky and Ilan, launched Bluman Equestrian. Since his first International Grand Prix Circuit in 2009, Daniel has added numerous Grand Prix wins to his career highlights including his most recent win in the $500,000 FTI Consulting CSI5* Finale Grand Prix, Wellington Florida aboard Sancha LS. Look for Daniel representing Colombia at the 2012 London Olympics this summer.
