Carlos decided to become a veterinarian at a very young age since he enjoyed being around any kind of animal. He learned the important skills of farm life from his family and school. While riding horses with friends he found a special interest in natural horsemanship and used those techniques to own and train his very first horse named Tequila.
Carlos is a 2011 graduate of the Universidad de Guadalajara College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation Carlos married the love of his life, Judy, who is also a veterinarian. The couple moved to Georgia and he began work on one the largest dairy farms in Georgia. As a fun fact, one of the first things he did in Georgia was to buy a horse. Carlos has a special fondness for Quarter Horses and a special interest in reining and cutting bloodlines. He enjoys talking with owners, trainers and horse people about those disciplines and bloodlines. When he is not working his favorite hobbies are riding horses with his daughter and wife and taking care of their small farm.
In March 2022 Carlos joined the staff of Central Georgia Equine Services where he has been a tremendous asset. His natural horsemanship skills and quiet demeanor put every horse at ease. Carlos is fluent in Spanish which has allowed us to connect with clients in a while new way.
