Biography
General Interest
Hero / Idol Canadian showjumper Eric Lamaze, Brazilian equestrian Nelson Passoa. (calgarysun.com, 06 Jun 2013)

Other information FROM COLOMBIA TO ISRAEL
In late 2016 he announced his decision to begin competing for Israel, the country of his mother Orly Bluman. "Everything came together with the right timing to allow me to make the decision, and a smooth transition. There were a lot of things to consider. I love Israel and I love everything that it means. I have always been very close to Israel. I went to Hebrew school growing up, and my grandfather, who is a Holocaust survivor, spent three years in Auschwitz. I remain Colombian, I love the country, I love my teammates, but this is an opportunity I cannot let pass." (noellefloyd.com, 22 Dec 2016)

RELOCATION
In 2007 he moved from Colombia to Wellington, FL, United States of America, in order to further his equestrian career. In 2010 he set up Bluman Equestrian with his cousins Mark and Ilan. "I only had one horse for quite a long time. To cover the expenses I rode for other people, bought and sold some horses, gave lessons and was lucky to be able to win some big money classes that helped me finance my way up." (esmtoday.org, 19 Sep 2013)

COMMUNITY WORK
He began working as an ambassador for JustWorld International as a teenager. The charity was established by US equestrian Jessica Newman, and is dedicated to humanitarian causes. In January 2014 he announced a JustWorld project working to support vulnerable children in Medellin, Colombia. He also supports the Antorchas de Vida project, which is supports children and adults living on the streets of Colombia.
