His passenger Sophie Walker was sadly pronounced deceased at the scene by paramedics this morning. She was an accomplished amateur rider and the wife of professional trainer Brian Walker. The couple operated their Woodside Farm together.

Andres represented Venezuela at the 2015 Pan Am Games where he received the individual silver which led him to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. He was a very accomplished rider in the grand prix ring. They were both kind, wonderful, talented people.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this horrible accident. Take a moment to tell those around you that you love them because it can all change in a heartbeat.
