The Equiventures Organizing Committee regrets to announce the death of Consensus, an 18-year-old Oldenburg gelding (Contucci x Miss Me Not 2823) owned by Julie Norman and ridden by Adriana Beruvides.

Consensus was competing in the Open Preliminary division, collapsed during the cross-country phase between fences 16 and 17 and died of natural causes. Beruvides was attended to on site and then was transferred to Ocala Regional Hospital for further care. 

The Organizing Committee of the Equiventures Horse Trials and the USEA wishes to extend its deepest sympathy and condolences to all of Consensus' connections.
