In May 2023, I audited a clinic by Luis, and in September 2023 I had the privilege of riding with him. My experience was truly exceptional. Luis displayed remarkable expertise in imparting the elusive concept of self-carriage, and his kindness and generosity left me with a lasting impression. I look forward to the opportunity to ride with him again. Come join me!
