Daniel was born on March 15, 1990 in Medellin, Colombia. His father, Samuel, is an entrepreneur, and his mother, Orly, is a psychologist and social worker. Daniel’s parents set standards of high education and honesty that both their sons, Daniel and Steven, live up and aspire to in their life.
Inspired by his older cousins who loved and showed horses, Daniel started riding at age 3. He showed a passion for horses which rapidly developed to become a real lifestyle. As a young rider Daniel competed in Colombia, Germany and in the USA. In 2007 he moved permanently to Wellington where he started his professional riding career. His cousins, Marky and Ilan, recently joined him and Bluman Equestrian was created.
