Maxima was born and raised southwest of Mexico City. At a very young age he was surrounded by different types of animals as his family raised cattle, goats and pigs. His grandfather also started and raised colts. He wanted to go to school to become a veterinarian but during that time boys were expected to help around the ranch and we’re not allowed to go to school. In 2001 he immigrated to California and went back and forth to Washington State working different jobs. He met his wife Sonia in November of 2004 and they married that following year; they have four beautiful children. In December of 2005 they moved to Washington State. Max worked different jobs for the next couple years until he found a job with a horse trainer in Spokane. He has always said he wanted to be around horses which have been his passion all his life. Max joined the MPEH team in 2015. He loves working here and in his heart he knew this is where he wanted to be and he wouldn’t change it for the world!
