Palmer’s love of horses and gymnastics led her to the world of vaulting as a five-year-old. Her goal has always been to represent New Zealand at the world games, and to finally make that happen is dream come true.

The Paraparaumu College student has competed with success in Germany and Australia, and over the years has been trained by various international vaulters, including world champion Christophe Lensing.

Palmer has also competed in gymnastics for New Zealand. She is also a member of the Waikanae Pony Club and competes in dressage, showjumping and eventing.
