Luis grew up in a region of horses, the Ribatejo, and always loved them. He gained passion for riding in 1970, when he went on a trip with his parents. Then he really started riding in 1979 in Lisbon at the Jockey Club.
Luis was born in the 31th of August 1965.
His favorite horse was "Henaut's In-Chala", that he bought at the age of 7. The horse did not pass the veterinary exam, but Luis liked both his quality and talent, so he risked and bought him.
With this horse he won 125 International and 42 National tests. But for him, the most important was not the fact that he had won a lot, but the enormous pleasure and happiness they both felt when they were competing.

quality and comfort, like all clothing. I love the design and quality of the fabrics.
An advice for riders
If you love and respect your horse, he will be there for you at the
most difficult and important moments.
