ALKO EQUESTRIAN MANAGER
California born and raised, Jose’s passion for horses began shortly after high school. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to help in the development of multiple Graded Stakes Winning horses such as Charismatic (Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner), Commendable (Belmont Stakes Winner), Cat Thief, Spain, Cash Run, Surfside, Yonaguska and more. Following these accomplishments, he relocated to Florida with his family to train and manage a 125 acre facility that focused on young horse development, FDA approved quarantine and post-surgical rehabilitation. Jose joined the Alko Equestrian Center team in August 2021 bringing with him a vast knowledge of horse training, facility management and horsemanship.
Our dedicated staff has been selected for their years of experience in caring for horses in luxury stables. Continuously on site during open hours, they maintain the feeding, turnout, cleaning and blanketing schedule. They are also engaged in arena grooming and any extra services contracted through the barn manager.
