Jorge knew from a young age he wanted to be around horses, but quickly learned he was too big to be a jockey. He began grooming which segued into his success in polo. Jorge currently teaches a high school team and the University of Kentucky team, with many MVPs and a National Championship win. Additionally, Jorge holds a BB Outdoor Umpire rating, contracts as an instructional clinician for the USPA, and is active on the Arena Committee. Jorge is also certified through the Certified Horsemanship Association and brings those safety practices into his teaching style.
