Special girl with knowledge beyond her years. The loss is ours. I will never forget her riding Pedro like a pro when she was a young girl. She had never shown horses before and she rode him up to arena and he did everything perfect for her. A true natural. Prayers and thoughts to all that loved her and appreciated her special gift for animals and nature.

Amelia was a kind and unique soul. We shared a love of animals and David Bowie. I will miss our conversations about horses, pangolins, fish, and all manor of creatures great and small. My deepest sympathies to her family especially her two daughters.
