Amelia White

Amelia White, who is currently based in Germany, was born in Sydney and began riding at the age of 8, getting her first pony at age 9.

Amelia spent many years as an Eventer but switched to Para-Dressage as a teenager after a devastating car accident in 2010. Her left leg was crushed and even after numerous surgeries and long-term rehabilitation, she was left with permanent physical challenges.

Her Eventing coach at the time, Olympian Megan Jones, suggested she switch disciplines to keep competing at an elite level, and Amelia embraced a new training regimen that set her on her current path. 

Amelia made her international debut at CPEDI*** Deauville, France in 2016, and was officially long-listed for the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. 

In 2017, Amelia began training with German olympian, Helen Langehanenberg, and has been focussed on international competition ever since.

In 2021 Amelia made her Paralympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games where she finished in 5th place riding her horse Genius in the Grade V Freestyle competition.
